I started mentoring some junior programmers at work a few months ago, and you won't believe what happened next!

@aras They got better? They quit in abject disgust? I can believe both. I'm very good at believing.

@aras great job ! and thanks for writing it up, stuff like this can always be good fuel to convince somebody

@aras Thanks for sharing this.

Effective debugging and divide and conquer approaches are the ones that I've found to be critical for me, after 13 years of experience. Still lots to improve, though. And I know I'm a shitty programmer.

Will this impostor syndrome disappear anytime soon?

@aras thanks, that was a nice read especially because I had not the nicest experience with mentoring sometimes.
