I have tried to find an online mentor (for free of course, as I'm
unemployed for more than a year now), that would be more than willing to
have a long and exhausting discussion with me about various programming
languages and concepts, all the "do"s and "don't"s about those specific
concepts and guide me towards the right path for working eventually
remotely, either from home or from anywhere the world as long as I have
a wireless connection to use a laptop.
You will say "hey, nothing is free you know" and I agree with you; but
look around you and see how many open source projects exist. If I get
trained properly or validate my existing knowledge by an experienced,
professional senior developer I'm pretty sure I will create a few useful
projects, let alone services, plus I will be able to participate to
existing projects that need an extra pair of eyes and hands.
So, without extra fuss, anyone can suggest anything?
