What is mkdev
Mkdev is a place for newbie and experienced programmers to learn from each other, develop professionally and achieve their goals together. The mkdev history dates back to 2014, when a programmer and mentor Kirill Shirinkin ventured to start helping beginners and share his knowledge with them, mostly to maintain his own skills. This decision was partly caused by the fact that early in his career, Kirill, too, was a mentee. This is how the idea of the project where students can search for ment

Many of our students got a well-paid job in different companies after their studies and we continue receiving positive f
Is the feedback real?
Of course! As you can see, there are not only praises. Having studied at least two weeks with a particular mentor, every mkdev student can leave a review about him or her. Besides that, you can also find many of our ex-students on mkdev social media and talk with them if needed.
I’m an experienced programmer, can I become a mentor?
