The Ultimate Developer Mentoring Guide 🚀


This guide has been developed by OfferZen in collaboration with Project Thrive community members.

Since July 2019, OfferZen has been running the Project Thrive mentoring programme where we connect junior developers with senior developers for a 12-week mentoring journey. Over the last couple of years of running our programme, we've learnt a lot about what makes a mentoring pair successful, as well as about the common pitfalls that mentoring pairs experience.

We launched the Project Thrive mentoring programme because we believe in the power of mentorship. Whether you're a mentor or a mentee, the mentoring relationship can have numerous benefits on your professional, and even your personal, growth.

This guide will provide you with tips and frameworks to help you make the most of your mentoring relationship.


If you're a developer reading this guide and have questions relating to mentoring that we haven't covered, please submit them here or create an issue on GitHub. We want to make sure that we curate content that is useful to you. You are also welcome to make suggestions or edits to the guide so that we can build this out together. 🤝
