Have you ever been stuck on a problem and wished you had a senior developer to talk to?
Maybe you’re not sure what the best architecture is for your app; perhaps you can’t quite wrap your head around reactive programming; or maybe you’re trying to decide between use Flutter or native development for your next project.
Not everyone has easy access to a senior developer, especially when everyone seems so busy these days and our teams are more physically separate then ever before.
Good news: Office Hours are the next best thing to having a senior developer right next to you!
