I think what I'm missing is a value proposition
Inspired by a fellow mentor here's something I've always wanted to do: mentoring starting programmers.
There are a ton of resources online, but you will still get stuck. Also, some resources are deceptive. I've seen the most known ones be more of a hindrance to learning. So in my eyes, when starting, a mentor is a must have! Having started alone, it was very painful. To the point where I actually quit for 6 months, because I thought I just wasn't made for it (but actually had wrong tools).
Don't get me wrong - I've actually taught programming courses for over 300 people in university, trainings and custom "code school" meetups.
With my experience here's what works:
If there are any takers we can schedule our first call. In the unlikely case that there are too many, I may need to limit participants. I mean this is my time and it's free.. so you understand :)
