Do you feel like you’re an experienced developer… But not experienced enough to make the jump to Senior?

Are you afraid you’ll be stuck forever as an intermediate developer?

With so many years of experience, it’s gotta be enough to have some Senior-level skills to show for it, right?

Well, not really. Practicing beyond the basics is still a struggle. Because you don’t have many opportunities to get experience with advanced skills on the job.

It seems the only thing you can do is to just keep trying to learn after work. And hope for the best. 🤷

After a long day of work, you want to leave the chair and enjoy your free time. Without feeling guilty.

And sometimes, you manage to sit down and study. You really want to keep learning and growing.

However, it doesn’t feel like you’ve learned anything. Because you don’t apply the concepts in a practical way.

Are you stuck on projects that aren’t getting you to the “next level”?

If only you could practice Senior-level skills on the job… but how can you do that if you are always relegated to fixing bugs and saddled with the little things. Nothing that puts you out of your comfort zone.

Yes, you do have years of experience. But if you worked on challenging and inspiring technical projects and made a big impact on your team, you would be growing so much faster. You just don’t know HOW.

But what if you had endless opportunities for technical growth? What if you could finish every day feeling confident you’re making consistent progress in your career?

What if you knew exactly how to get your Software Engineering skills to the next level?

What if you were sharpening your skills every day?

In the job, outside of the job, it doesn’t matter. You’re a lifelong learner: always sharpening your software skills.
