Kyma training and mentoring

I'm providing online individual coaching sessions and small group classes in Kyma.

Kyma Courses

From January 2021 I'll be running a series of weekly online Kyma courses. The courses take place over 4 weeks. There is a 2-hour online teaching session once a week on a Friday at 16:00 UTC. Some self-study tasks are set and there is support over slack during the course. The numbers are kept low (5 or 6 people) to make it really participatory and collaborative.

I create a syllabus for each course but, with the small group, there will also be the opportunity to look at your areas of interest. In the first session I ask everyone if there's anything particular they'd like to cover and we'll do our best to look at those too.

Introduction to Kyma

If you're interested in a general introduction course to Kyma aimed at the beginner send me an email. When there's enough interest I'll put a course and date together. If there's a lot of interest I may run a beginners course along side the courses above on a Thursday. The cost and duration would be the same as the other courses.

Individual Coaching

I currently have only 1 slot left available for 1 hour individual Kyma coaching sessions. I do this online using screensharing and video conferencing. The program is completely tailored for you. Generally I'll set some homework or suggest a direction for self-study during the week. I'm available on slack chat if you get stuck. Then we meet up online once a week or every two weeks, discuss what you've done then look at what you want to do next. It's a hands on approach. You'll be doing everything in Kyma yourself, sharing your screen while I'll be helping and guiding you.

Cost: 60 (GBP) per session.
