Welcome to Pro Dev Mentor! I’m Adam Bourg. I’m a software engineer with more than a decade of technical experience. I’m currently working as a team lead building the future of TV. I am passionate about building and supporting Agile teams to deliver high quality software. As I began working in the field, I noticed the lack of software engineering professional development opportunities beyond how to work with the trendiest technology.

Our mission at Pro Dev Mentor is to challenge software engineers to become effective leaders in their organizations. We do this by exploring technical and non-technical topics from a leadership perspective.

This blog is for you if want to:

  • Level up your career
  • Grow and develop better habits
  • Learn new skills and techniques to maximize pay, experience and responsibility
