What is the drop table mentoring?

When Philipp was studying computer science, he felt like something wasn’t right with the conventional way of learning coding. The amount of theory that is taught in universities bothered him and made him think about shortcuts to learn what’s really needed in practice. Over time, he found mentors to learn from. Mentors who came straight out of practice. That was the game changer for him and his career.

While for most developers, DROP TABLE is just a command to delete a database table, Philipp’s reinterpretation is to drop what doesn’t move you forward and start doing what does. Learning takes time, but it shouldn’t take more time than necessary. That’s why Philipp decided to mentor a small group of very hungry and committed Android developers to become ready for the industry. The DROP TABLE mentoring is a direct result of that.

Become an Industry-Ready Android developer in 10 weeks

Self-Learning is not a fast way to getting a well paid job

  • Self-learning is very error-prone, since nobody tells you when you’re on the wrong path
  • Learning alone lacks a clear structure which will cause you to learn irrelevant conepts while leaving out those that matter
  • As a solo-learner, you have no relation to real practice since you’re not coding in a real work scenario

Having a mentor Is the fastest way to learn what’s required in the industry

  • Get immediate feedback on your mistakes which speeds up learning by up to 7x, since your mistakes won’t backfire later
  • Get a clear structure on what really matters, so you master what really counts in the real world
  • Learn from an experienced Android developer to find out about all the tricks & hacks you only learn by working on real projects

Get Everything to Land Jobs at top companies

  • Individual mentorship & a real work environment will equip you with everything needed for your dream job
  • Add a professional app to your portfolio to show off your skills to future companies

With over 10,000 sold copies of his courses and 700h+ spent for teaching Android concepts, he already helped thousands of people to learn practical skills they can immediately apply.

He has a degree in computer science, however it didn’t go as expected. The amount of theory that was taught in university made him think about a better approach to learn what is really needed in the real world. Over time, Philipp found mentors who taught him exactly that in a practical setting. That was the game changer for his career.

FAQ

Do I need to know Jetpack Compose?

No, it’s fully up to you how you build the UI for your app.

What is the price of the mentoring?

If apply to this and end up being a fit, Philipp will get back to you to discuss your situation, struggles and goals. That’s also when you’ll hear about the price.

How will the code reviews be done?

Everytime, you pushed some code to your repo, you create a pull request which will be reviewed by Philipp or an experienced Android developer from his team. You will get comments on everything that can be improved with clear and specific suggestions.
After you let them know about changes, the review is done within 2 business days.

No, you’ll get lifetime access to the video portal and even to all videos and recordings of live code reviews that will be added later. Without any subscription.

Will I be able to get to know other android developers with this?

Absolutely! Thanks to the regular group calls you can directly be in touch with other highly committed Android developers to connect and learn from.

Can I benefit from this if I already have a job?

For sure! In the past, Philipp has helped dozens of Android developers who were already in a job to get to the next level.
The DROP TABLE mentoring is for anybody who struggles to write maintainable, extendable, testable and modular code. If you already have a job and want to take your career to the next level this is just as perfect as wanting to take the step into the corporate world.

Why do i need to apply?

The DROP TABLE mentoring is only for a small group of very committed people who want to take the step from intermediate to professional Android developers. Since the amount of spots that can be offered is strictly limited, the application will be used to assess if you’re a fit.

what do i need to be able to build to apply?

Since the mentorship is an individual mentorship program, Philipp can perfectly adapt to your challenges, your coding style and you as a person which is why it’s not important that everyone is at the same level.
You should however have a bit of experience with Android, so you roughly know how to build simple UI, how to use a database & API and things like the activity lifecycle.

Can I ask Philipp anything I want?

Yes, you’ll be in direct contact with Philipp over these 10 weeks.
