Last week I did a poll on Twitter, asking the following question:

"How important were mentors in your personal and professional life?"

1/3 of the respondents said they were „crucial“ and 1/3 „somewhat important“

It matches pretty well with what my DevJourney guests mentioned on the show. Yet we don‘t seem to be speaking about it nearly enough. When I ask for advice around me, it's always Tech X, Framework Y or Project Z. Rarely I hear the word "mentor" or even "networking".

  • Why is that?
  • Did/do you have a mentor?
  • How could we change this?
