Mental Models
You will leverage mental models and proven principles instead so no matter the trends or frameworks going around, you are on top of your game. 
No more “Courses”
Together we will focus on doing, on collaboration and feedback instead of binge watching content that you will forget shortly after. 

Feedback and Accountability.

Personal Coaching
You will get daily personalized individual feedback from Dragos & Bogdan (as code reviews and live Q&A calls).

Customer Results

Fahed Arshad

Full-stack Developer - Edinburgh, Scotland
45% salary increase, modern stack
"It gave me back the passion for software engineering."

Problem

As a self taught developer Fahed has been working with the JavaScript stack for a while and he was hungry for something more, but every time he tried, Impostor Syndrome would hold him back. At his job, he spent most of his time fixing bugs, and never got the chance to build strong fundamentals.

Solution

After analyzing Fahed’s gaps we put together a personalized roadmap and went straight to work. He applied our Mastery System to his particular situation and got feedback from us at every point of the journey. He took action, implemented, and also got extremely involved in the community.

Result

After working with us, Fahed almost doubled his salary within just a few weeks, and not only that but he made the transition from “coder” to “engineer” that he’s been looking for. He went from guessing his way out through things to being able to deliver with full confidence, end-to-end like a true Senior Developer.

Kirsten Burton

Frontend Engineer - Connecticut, US
35% salary increase, Senior level position
 “I was able to weed out all the noise, and focus on the things that were important.”

Problem

Kirsten's challenge came from her experience as a self-taught engineer and the relatively small company she was working at. She became the “Jane of all trades” jumping from feature development to bug fixes to setting up infrastructure topics. As a result, she lacked the technical depth required for a Senior Engineer. Confused by the number of blog posts and tutorials out there, she reached out to us to craft a clear path for her to the next level.

Solution

The biggest breakthrough in the case of Kirsten and the first thing we did was finding out first what were the exact gaps in her knowledge. The second step was to leave secondary topics to the side (infrastructure) and focus on gaining depth in the tech stack she wanted to grow in, JavaScript. Using the mental models and principles contained in the Software Mastery program and getting feedback from us all along the way.

Result

In a couple of weeks, Kirsten went from barely getting by having to catch on weekend and evening, to becoming the “go-to” person and leading her team. Shortly after she moved on to a better position that meant a salary increase of roughly 40% in her compensation and offered her the ability to work remotely (something she was looking for since she became a developer). She is now constantly improving herself as part of the community and is on her way to getting her own team.

Raffaele Nicosia

Frontend Developer - London, UK
60% pay increase, remote position & modern stack
“Working with you was like having a cup of tea with a friend. You are always there for us.”

Problem

As a self-taught developer, Raffaele struggled with understanding exactly what things he needed to focus on to get to the next level. Even though he’s been coding for more than four years at the time, he’s been switching different tech-stack and his company didn’t offer any training or mentorship for him to transition to the next level.

Solution

The focus with Raffaelle was number one crystalizing his existing knowledge around key principles and fundamentals so he can connect the dots, and be able to deliver with full confidence end to end in the JavaScript (React, Node, TypeScript) stack.

Result

After putting the Software Mastery system in place, Raffaele skyrocketed his confidence in his technical skills being able to overdeliver at his current position, he ended up switching jobs. In the process, he almost doubled his salary and got the flexibility of working 100% remotely which was one of his dream in order to be able to stay close to his family in Italy.

Adriana Matsufuji

Full-stack Developer - The Randstad, Netherlands
45% salary increase, paid time off, bigger company
“I even thought at some point about leaving software development until I met you and you changed that. ”

Problem

Adriana was a fullstack developer, and after almost 5 years writing code felt like getting stuck without making much progress. Even though she felt ready for the next level she didn’t have a clear idea on how to get there. She even thought at some point about leaving Software Development and trying something else. Well lucky she didn't, she decided to join theSeniorDev instead.

Solution

Getting into development through a Bootcamp, meant Adriana’s fundamentals were not so strong. That’s actually the first thing that came up after analysing her technical gaps. It was also obvious that she spent too much time jumping from backend to frontend and from framework to framework which only accentuated her gaps and didn’t give her the chance to sharpen her technical skills at a deeper level.

Result

After only a few weeks of working together, Adriana was on the way to making her dream come true, a better position that matched her technical level. What’s more, during the interviews she got the feedback that there were no questions left for her as she nailed them all. She moved on to a bigger company with, a better tech stack, and increased her salary by 45% in the process. Beyond that, she’s built the kind of confidence that will carry her beyond the Senior level.

Ranjit Saimbi

Full-stack Developer - London, UK
Crazy pay increase (100%), more responsibility
“It put me years ahead of schedule of where I thought my salary would be.”

Problem

Ex-lawyer and Software Engineer, Ranjit was almost 3 years into development when he got in touch with us. Throughout his journey, he jumped from startup to startup, which meant limited exposure to codebases at scale. He had doubts about the depth of his knowledge and the quality of the mental models he’s built so far regarding software development. At that point, he started thinking about how to get to the next level and that’s when we got in touch.

Solution

Given his startup experience and his self-taught journey, the issues that Ranjit faced were many. On one side, he had to build on his existing knowledge and add more depth to the mix of experiences he’s got. On the other side, he had to widen his experience, particularly on the side of best practices and big-picture understanding (infrastructure, software architecture).

Result

We’ve got to work and after a few weeks working on the foundations, Ranjit started checking out the market with the intention of just getting some feedback. In a matter of weeks he landed an offer that completely blew his expectations, with a 100% salary increase, touching six figures in the London market in his 3rd year of writing code. Way beyond his wildest dreams, he is not motivated to keep growing and working towards the next step.

Laura White

Full-stack Developer - Wisconsin, US
Pay increase, signing bonus, modern tech stack

“It was a shortcut. You got me straightened out.”

Problem

After being a web developer for years, Laura felt a bit stuck. She wanted to move toward more senior software engineering positions, but she lacked the production experience and exposure to scale needed. Laura felt like she’s got what it takes to be a great developer but missed the opportunity to put it into practice.

Solution

When we started together, Laura’s focus and efforts were spread in ten different directions. She was jumping from the frontend to the backend without building long lasting expertise in any of them. After finding out her technical gaps we mapped out a systematic action plan for her to build on top of her to make the transition from Software Developer to Software Engineer.

Result

Laura was able to transition into a Software Engineering position successfully, with a more modern tech stack, and a team that supports her in her technical growth. She is now working towards onboarding herself successfully on the new codebase and making steps towards the next level to Senior and beyond!

The most helpful part was all of the motivation and mindset work. Without that, I would not have been able to go from a Mid level to a Senior position at a new company.

They honestly give you the best of themselves and put all their effort to help you in whatever you need, in a technical and personal way. Every time I can, I still connect to those sessions because you can learn so much in there.
