Mentorship is the most effective way to learn programming.
Mentorship is different from other learning methods. The amount of knowledge you get from your mentor is limited only by the knowledge and experience of the mentor. With mentor you are not just learning new technologies, but also how to build a successfull career as a developer.
A real application in a real environment
No interactive in-browser garbage and delusional and purposeless tests. You’ll get lots of practical working a real working environment! You’ll be able to create your own application for the portfolio or a personal project.
Work one-on-one with an experienced mentor
An entirely individual approach! Defining goals and targets together, constant feedback, a thorough code review, an assistance in making your resume and support while you are looking for a job. Also, motivational kicks and heart-to-heart talks :-)
At your pace and with no time limits
No time limits! Are you ready to study for eight hours a day? Go ahead! Haven’t written a single line of code in an entire week? We’ll find a way to shame and motivate you!

Our graduates recommend some of our programming mentors
«... Victor is really attentive, ready to support, but always pushing to “improve oneself”. He’s a great and inspiring role model. He teaches you to think things over and not to look for the ready-made answers (because you may fail to find them), but to find the solution yourself. Responds very quickly. In real life it’s pretty unlikely to get the answer almost right after you’ve asked it.' ... »
«... Alexei gave the impression of a very experienced and knowledgeable person. Together with him for 1.5 months, we came from zero to 'a man who can throw code' and execute the project for which mentoring was started. We studied everything from the very beginning and gradually went through all the links of the chain. ... »
«... Dmitry is customizable. =) The training mode and the method of interaction with it can be easily negotiated and arranged for yourself. He is involved in the student's learning process, the desire to help, share his experience, is open to discussing not only the objectives of the course, but also other issues related to professional activity and demonstrates an invariably responsible and thorough approach to his work - he always answers questions quickly enough, tasks, and he himself initiates offering assistance. ... »
You don’t have to choose between the mentorship and self-study
Our mentors put a lot of effort in incouraging the self-independence of our students, and we support their self-study.
For this purpose we have a guide for beginning web-developers, which explains what to start with, what technologies and concepts to study first and which ones are going to be useful later on.
Our subscribers can get this guide free of charge of charge.Get a free copy of the book >
Also, we have plenty of articles devoted to programming in general and certain technologies in particular. We write them for beginners as well as for experienced developers. The vast majority of articles are written by our mentors and based on their personal experience.
We are a group of developers and enthusiasts, working in different places and living in different cities and countries. For us mkdev is a hobby and a job at the same time.
By the way, all parts of the website are written and supported by our students, who were studying with our mentors and now are working as trainees here. Having gained some experience they leave for some other cool jobs, and new students take their place.
