Proaction Mentors is a software process and methodology botique of Ninjas. We are focused on helping your team adopt and embrace proven methodologies and approaches to software development on the Microsoft platforms. We provide architectural guidance and development mentoring.

History

Frustrated by the seemingly endless number of cookie cutter consulting and training options in the industry,  Proaction Mentors was founded with a different goal in mind.

Our goal is to mentor teams of developers to perform at their best.”
- Caleb Jenkins (Proaction Mentors Founder – 2010)

We have no desire to become your developement team, instead, we find that the greatest impact we can have is to help your existing development team perform at thier absolute best.

Principal

Proaction Mentors was founded by Caleb Jenkins in 2010. Prior to forming Proaction Mentors, Mr Jenkins was the Senior Software Architect at Six Flags Corporation and a Principal with Improving Enterprises. He also had a successful tenure working with the Microsoft Corporation as a Developer Evangelist and technology expert.

In addition to his on going work with Proaction Mentors, Mr Jenkins also serves as a national speaker for the International .NET Association (INETA).  He has been recognized as an industry expert by Microsoft with their prestigious Microsoft MVP award for three straight years. He is a strong agile process advocate and a Certified Scrum Master.

He has also worked as a technical editor forWrox Press, and was recently a featured presenter on xTrain and Adobe.TV.

In his spare time, Caleb is the host, cameraman and editor for CommunityCast TV. He lives in the Dallas area where he continues to date his beautiful wife and busy himself playing Candy Land and Xbox 360 with their four incredible children. Occasionally he writes curriculum, speaks at conferences, and write code for silly things like Twitter applications. Eventually, we’ll get him to post some of the gazillion interviews that he’s recorded on CommunityCast TV or blog some more.
