You Should Have An Apprenticeship

Software apprenticeships have been around for years, but until recently only a handful of companies committed to them as a path to growing their teams. It’s time for that to change. If you have trouble hiring enough developers, if you struggle with retention and diversity, or if you’d like to raise the bar on your development practices, you need to give software apprenticeship a look.

In this talk, we’ll cover the real and imagined costs of running an apprenticeship, the real and imagined benefits, and some helpful tips for starting your own program. You’ll leave prepared to craft a program that fits the resources of today’s team so that you can build tomorrow’s.
