@cenk @laurendorman, definitely an interesting take on internships vs. apprenticeships vs. formal CS education.

@cenk Damn. I was just talking to some friends the other day about how I'd love to see a shift back more towards apprenticeships in the U.S. education system. But this isn't what I had in mind.

This is brilliant! Apprenticeships are so undervalued in today's economy....

Ryan CromwellMaker@cromwellryan · Technical Director @ Sparkbox was created by the 4th year of apprentices from to connect potential apprentices with organizations offering apprenticeships. We knew there were organizations interested in producing as much talent as they consumed by offering paid, intentional learning experiences. We also knew, first hand, how hard it can be to connect with individuals who want to take the next step. is our attempt to solve this challenge!
