Learn With Our CEO, 1-On-1 Coding Mentor

A coding mentor can guide you through the most important steps in coding. We are developing a smart classroom named Cobie AI, that helps teachers give personalised feedback to every student. From time to time, I use our content to mentor a few students to see what we can change and improve to make a better impact in our schools and with our teachers and mentors.

Usually, I accept up to 6 students to work with me and learn coding. So this is a great opportunity for you. I have a lot of experience since I've been coding for almost 30 years. I've seen it all. I started with no internet and moved on with all the new technologies.

CodeBrainer Mentor Miha Cirman

The smart classroom that we are building uses the most contemporary technologies. We have been advocating for the use of AI for quite a few years now as we see the benefit of AI helping teachers and mentors. I build a smart classroom during my day job, ensuring we are building the best tools possible.

Building Simple Games To Learn HTML, Javascript, And CSS

One of the most effective ways to learn coding is by building something tangible and engaging, like a simple game. Not only does this approach make learning more enjoyable, but it also provides practical experience in using coding languages such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS.

In this mentoring program, students have the opportunity to build games as they learn these essential languages. This hands-on experience allows them to apply the theoretical concepts they've learned in practical, real-world contexts. By creating games, students gain a deeper understanding of how these languages work together to produce interactive and dynamic content.

Using games as a basis makes students work a bit harder, but we have structured our content in a way that every theoretical part has its own interactive assignment. Throughout the learning process, you will build four games, starting from the simplest ones and gradually progressing to more complex ones that incorporate gaming logic. For example, we will create a tic-tac-toe game that you can play with friends, and a minesweeper game to familiarize you with various gaming aspects necessary for game development.

Taking it further, we'll develop a snake game where the player navigates through labyrinths using a keyboard. You'll have the opportunity to design your own levels, bringing your ideas to life in the game environment.

During our journey to build these simple games, you will learn about HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. You'll understand how to manipulate elements of the game to enhance its design and make it more engaging.

We'll cover HTML and CSS basics so that you can effectively position elements on the screen and enhance their visual appeal. You'll grasp JavaScript fundamentals to add interactivity to your games. To make our games more complex, we'll delve into variables and functions, essential building blocks for game development. Additionally, we'll utilize JSON data for building game levels, a skill crucial for all web development projects. Understanding JSON and its consumption will solidify your programming skills.

Throughout the development process, errors may occur, and we'll teach you how to utilize debugging tools to identify and fix them. Debugging is a critical aspect of coding, and by the end of our sessions, you'll be adept at running, testing, and debugging your code.

The Impact Of Human Mentoring In Learning To Code

Unlike self-study or online tutorials, having a dedicated mentor by your side can make all the difference in grasping complex coding concepts. The personal attention and guidance provided by a mentor can help students navigate through challenges, troubleshoot errors, and gain a deeper understanding of the coding principles.

Mentoring also plays a crucial role in boosting students' confidence and motivation. It provides a safe space for them to ask questions, seek clarifications, and share their progress without fear of judgment. This personalized approach fosters a supportive learning environment, where students feel empowered to explore their potential and push their boundaries.

Additionally, human mentoring adds a layer of accountability, as students are accountable not only to themselves but also to their mentor. This accountability fosters discipline and commitment, ensuring that students stay on track with their learning and make steady progress.

Overall, the impact of human mentoring in learning to code extends far beyond just understanding technical concepts. It encompasses emotional support, personalized guidance, and a nurturing environment that facilitates comprehensive learning and skill development.

Process Of The Lessons

  • The base of lessons is communication, we will talk, we will chat, all to get you more knowledge.
  • Integral part of lessons is lecture and interactive assignments. Lecture explains how we will solve the assignments, then we start working on code.
  • The great thing about the process is that I get to see what you are doing in real-time, this means that I can help you with the progress. But I will not just help you complete the code, I will guide you to the solution.
  • Depending on the content of the lesson you will get some home assignments.
  • Usually a topic consists of 10 lessons or ten 45 minute segments. Price is based on the minutes we spend together.
  • Based on the cohort we can decide to add a few more lessons. Up to 4 lessons can be added. We will discuss this during the sessions.

Real-World Example Of How Mentor Will Help You

This is one example of how I can guide a student during a session. When we completed the session, the student noticed the button was not working correctly. If you clicked on it, nothing happened.

This is what I was observing on the screen.

1-On-1 Coding Mentoring Showcase - Js File

Do you see it already? It's not the easiest error to spot, but it comes down to understanding what the code should do.

This is why I didn't want to give a straight answer right away, so I sent this to the student: "In JS file check how you get the element, which attribute you use?"

1-On-1 Mentoring Showcase - Message To Student

This is how it looks for the student when the student receives the message. The student gets a task with an explanation, and if the student selects the task, code is selected to pinpoint the problem better:
