How long have you been working as a professional developer?

Around 2 years. Only more recently have I decided to work on a project that might become large scale.

Which technologies would you be interested in mentoring?

PHP programming language. Although my knowledge of it is not absolute, I can share some awesome tips and ideas that may help optimize your code and improve your general understanding of how PHP works.

Which technologies would you like to learn about?

Some of the new Server-Side Javascript platforms such as Node, Ember and Meteor. They seem to be on every developers lips these days. I'd also like to developer an even deeper understanding of RDBMS systems (such as MySQL) and perhaps learn a few more things about NoSQL databases and if and when to switch to them.


I'm a 19-year-old Web Developer with a deep knowledge/understand­ing of PHP (Yii framework). I'm currently working on a new startup called Gest. I'm also pursuing a Computer Science degree at Wits University.
