Had my first 'mentor' moment at work today!

Newest guy couldn't figure something out and asked me, slightly nervously, for help.

Suddenly I went into mentorish state, explaining stuff I was doing while fixing it in under a minute!

Felt good 😃

    It's kind of nice seeing you transition. When you started you where the new guy not knowing too much and look at you now all mentored up and shit. Congratulations!

    Teaching is nice when people want to be taught. If I could have chosen in students I would have been a teacher for sure.

    That’s a really great feeling, and what’s more, you should pat yourself on the back for being approachable!

    @Wack Well I'm not his mentor in any way but I just know more about how everything works around here and this one was just non-stressed easy-solution thinking :).

    Thanks!

    @linuxxx you might not be officially but to him, you're the guy who knows how to fix stuff and that he can ask... Sounds pretty much like a mentor to me ;)

    My mentor moments:

    1. Here read this document I wrote, come back with questions
    2. Thought when "a Sr Dev" asked me to help him with Git or some other simple tech: What you don't know how to ... ???? Orz

    I think as Dev that's best way for us to give back to the community! Keep it up 👌🖖🤘

    I like this wholesome post. I love to see someone all happy they could help someone else, and not with the attitude of "look how cool I am."

    I wish for you a most fantastic rest of your week.
