Modernes C++ Mentoring

The Mentoring Programs

Each mentoring program consists of stations of 16 to 30 stations you have to master. A station is one week long, and you have to invest at least 3  hours a week for each one. So you’ll be able to integrate my program into your workday.

One Station

Each station consists of theory, practice, and mentoring:

  • Theory
    • Pure theory with about ten slides (video)
    • Applied theory with about five examples (video)
    • Additional posts and training videos
  • Practice
    • Exercises (video)
    • Sample solutions to the exercises (video)
    • Active C++ community in moderated forums
  • Mentoring
    • Live Q&A session each Friday, in which I address forum questions (recorded)
    • One-to-One mentoring at the end of the mentoring program if requested

What Mentees Say About my Mentoring

Rainer Grimm’s mentoring program Fundamentals for C++ Professionals is truly one of a kind. It opens the door to an immense amount of well structured information to learn all fundamentals of the C++ language with a depth that suits your background knowledge and the amount of time you can spent on the program. With Rainers long experience and knowledge about the language, the mentee’s skills are thoroughly and consistently strengthened every single week of the program.

I am enjoying the program a lot for the fact that it is intense on one hand but perfectly suited for following in parallel to a full time day job, the format and duration allows the material to really get settled. In my opinion the program is highly recommended to everyone that is dedicated to make C++ one of their core skills in a professional career and is prepared to engage with a focussed community of mentees and the excellent mentor Rainer Grimm.

I took this Mentoring Program to deepen my knowledge about C++. I was stunned by the huge amount of Videos and effort Rainer Grimm put into this program.

He does not only provide Videos, Examples and Exercises to explain the different Topics, he also provide further informations regarding those topics (Blog posts, Videos from CppCon etc).

One big advantage of the course is that you could wrote questions directly to Rainer Grimm or into the Forum and he will answer and explain also his answer in the weekly Q&A Sessions at the end of each week.

I could really recommend this Mentoring to beginners and also to intermediate C++ developers.

I am very happy I signed up for Rainer’s mentorship program. The pace is perfect to follow along while having a full time job, and most importantly the content has a great balance between theory and practical knowledge so you can apply what you learn right away. You can also customize the level of difficulty by asking questions in the forum, experimenting with the examples and by reading more of the further materials that Rainer selects for each week.

I like that each week has a clear goal and I believe the combination of the core material, the links to further information and the discussions in the Q&A sessions provide a thorough overview of each topic. Thanks to the program I have met other fellow mentees and have expanded my professional network.
