Graduation of the course “Programming in PHP”

I have had ideas about doing mentoring for a long time, but, probably due to laziness. I did not take any actual steps to implement them. Maybe all this would have remained in my mind if the girls from Avivi Academy had not approached me last fall and offered to read the course. Graduation of the course At first I was a little confused by the offer.
