This is a course for early to mid-career software developers who are intimidated, frustrated, or confused by the process of debugging their code. With a minor change in mindset and simple script that can be applied to any defect, you'll be able to keep track of what you know, what you don't know, and where to go next when tracking it down

Hi, I’m Ben Wilhelm


During the recession of 2008-09, I turned my long-time hobby of building websites into a career as a software developer. The self-confidence that came with that transition was transformative for me.

In 2017, I left a management position at a software consultancy and to be an instructor at a very rigorous coding bootcamp. Helping hundreds of other people to make the same kind of career transition that I made was one of the most fulfilling things I've ever done in my life.

Now with more and more bootcamps opening and the job market tightening, I'm creating content to bridge the gap between your bootcamp education and the practices and mindset of experienced software developers.

“...understood when to step back to have us connect the dots...”

Ben was able to break down complex concepts into manageable chunks that were much easier to understand. He’s very knowledgeable, and was able to share relevant stories from his own past and learnings. Most importantly, Ben understood when to lean in to provide guidance and when to step back to have us connect the dots ourselves.
