Tell me about how the Coaching program works
Simply put, the program consists of 12 monthly group calls, where we can discuss both the course material but, much more often, your own applications and implementations. We typically go into architectural decisions, implementation approaches, security concerns, etc.
What do the "groups" look like?
I usually keep the coaching groups very small - 2-3 developers.
When are the calls held? Will I be invited?
The calls always run at 7 PM UTC/London time.
And yes, of course, I'll reach out over email a week before, so that you have plenty of time to know exactly when the call is happening. There are, naturally, several other reminders.
Will I get a recording of each call?
Yes, of course.
What if I can't make a call?
No student makes all 12 calls - that's absolutely fine.
First, keep in mind you can send me questions you'd like me to go into beforehand, and I'll go into them regardless of you being on the call live.
And, of course, you'll get access to the recording of the call afterwards.
Can I send someone else from my team instead?
Of course. The main goal of these calls is to help you build your API - so if a developer from your team needs to be on the call, it's perfectly fine if they join the live event.
English isn't my primary language. How much of a problem is that?
Most Coaching students aren't native speakers.
As long as your level of English is enough to ask technical questions, you should be perfectly fine.
Simply put, after a few hundred students going through the Coaching program over the years, I've never seen any major language problems 🙂
