About Nelson


Bio

I'm a senior software architect with 10+ years of experience in the industry, and I want to give back to the community by helping students learn computer science fundamentals and emerging technologies that are used in the industry today. From your first line of JavaScript to your at-scale GraphQL API, I think everyone can benefit from guidance and mentorship.

I'm a senior software architect with 10+ years of experience in the industry, and I want to give back to the community by helping students learn computer science fundamentals and emerging technologies that are used in the industry today. From your first line of JavaScript to your at-scale GraphQL API, I think everyone can benefit from guidance and mentorship.

For CS students, I can help bridge the gap between your academic training and real-world use cases, and I can provide insight into testing, product roadmapping, and estimation (the hardest thing in computer science). For working professionals, I can offer technical training as well as career advice and technical interview prep.

I believe mentorship and code pairing are a fundamental part of any senior engineer's job, and I've spent a lot of time helping developers get a handle on new, complex codebases. I'm deeply familiar with cross-functional teams and best practices, and I've been lucky to work closely with technologies like React, GraphQL, and graph databases.

Please let me know how I can best support you as a software developer. Code may not be magic, but that doesn't mean we can't be wizards!

Highly Recommend

Nelson was able to go over a lot with me and explained it perfectly. Any time I was stuck he was able to explain the whys and go into more detail if needed. My project covered JavaScript, React, GraphQL. He definitely knows his stuff.

Grant, 1 lesson with Nelson

Worked quickly through the problems I had in my code

My app had several problems especially with GraphQL. We resolved all of them in one 2-hour session. Nelson quickly identified each problem, expertly explained each problem and what could be done to fix it. There are not many tutors with the in-depth knowledge of GraphQL that Nelson has.

Knowledgable and patient tutor

Nelson, met me at my need and helped me understand the concepts. Helpful in every way. I would highly recommend him and work with him again in the future. Looking for a great tutor, Nelson is the man.
