In August, I posted an idea of a three-month apprenticeship in web development and Node.js:
I only wanted to test the water, and was surprised that I got over 20 requests. Therefore, I went ahead with the interview process in order to select one aspiring Node.js programmer…
Lo and behold, the candidates were so smart and eager that I started having a hard time making a choice. Part of the effective learning comes from collaboration between peers; therefore, I accepted three individuals. They already started working on projects like HackHall, mongoui and Pro Express.js. We have weekly meetings and communicate almost daily via the Slack chat.
All apprentices received my books and were invited to attend in-person trainings like Node Program absolutely free!
The original apprenticeship program description as follows:
Why spend four years and boatloads of MONEY, at a college and get a degree which most likely will be 70% obsolete by the time you graduate, when you can learn cutting-edge stuff by doing and working with an expert?
Would someone be interested in programming (web development) apprenticeship with me?
The length of the program is three months.
The commitment is 10–20 hours per week.
Remote/online/weird hours are okay.
