// Mixpanel implementation The Mentoring Club - Asam Shan

Hi, I'm Asam a software engineer and co founder. I am very interested in people looking to break into the industry or struggling to navigate their early years in the industry.

I without doubt would not have successfully transitioned into the industry without the help of other more experienced people helping me along the way. I think it is now time for me to offer that same help to others.

My preferred stack is JS, React, TS and the jam stack with a keen interest in the operations side of the industry too. However a lot of what I would suggest is applicable across the whole field of software engineering.

I am very excited to meet, help and learn from as many people as possible, so please do not hesitate to reach out for a chat.

My Mentoring Topics

  • Getting into the software industry
  • Frontend Javascript technologies - React - TypeScript - JS
  • Networking
  • Interview prep and CV review
  • Building a clear career plan for the future

It was helpful, we focused more on the non-technical side of things but I think that is what I need moreso right now so I'm glad that was prioritized.

The session was really helpful and valuable. I got to ask Asam questions that he had knowledge and experience about. He gave me valuable feedback and good ideas to think about! We are going to have frequent calls to exchange ideas and compare the feedback we are doing in our projects.

Atomic Habits
James Clear

Tiny Changes, Remarkable Results No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving--every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results. If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change. You do not rise to the level of your goals. You fall to the level of your systems. Here, you'll get a proven system that can take you to new heights. Clear is known for his ability to distill complex topics into simple behaviors that can be easily applied to daily life and work. Here, he draws on the most proven ideas from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to create an easy-to-understand guide for making good habits inevitable and bad habits impossible. Along the way, readers will be inspired and entertained with true stories from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, business leaders, life-saving physicians, and star comedians who have used the science of small habits to master their craft and vault to the top of their field. Learn how to: • make time for new habits (even when life gets crazy); • overcome a lack of motivation and willpower; • design your environment to make success easier; • get back on track when you fall off course; ...and much more. Atomic Habits will reshape the way you think about progress and success, and give you the tools and strategies you need to transform your habits--whether you are a team looking to win a championship, an organization hoping to redefine an industry, or simply an individual who wishes to quit smoking, lose weight, reduce stress, or achieve any other goal.
