Thanks guys for making this episode. It was very informative, and I really love how you guys invest in junior developers.

I am currently preparing for applying to apprentice.io. My goal is to apply by end of this year. I had coffee with Sean from Denver office, and was informed they are probably not accepting any apprentices this year at Denver location. Just a thought, I think It would be nice for applicants if we are able to know in the apprentice.io website which locations are currently accepting or not accepting apprentices.

Great episode guys! I’ll second @anthony’s request. It would also be nice to have the ability to select multiple locations or even an “all the above” option.

Great episode guys! @benorenstein or @gabe can you tell me where I can find more on the patterns you discussed in the episode, even better do you know where I could find them all? I would look on google for the others but I don’t know what they are?

Thanks!

Hi Scott,

Which patterns in particular were you asking about? There’s a book called “Apprenticeship Patterns”, which we reference in the episode - it’s a great resource for getting in the right mindset as an apprentice or as a mentor.
