Employers want smart experienced people. But how do you get there in the first place?
There is no shortcut to gaining technical skills. The time it takes to go through these steps varies, but it’s usually around 12 to 18 months. We believe in the 10,000 hour rule.
We are going to put effort to bring you up to speed while you work on one of our open source projects. This gets us started on working together, and as your skills improve, we progressively challenge you with harder tasks while mentoring you.
For the internship, we’ll sign an agreement, which isn’t binding, but makes it clear what we are trying to achieve, and confirms a level of commitment to your learning journey.
In real life it’s not that quick, even though we wish it were. It’s going to need a lot of hours to study and master things (really master them). Be ready for that.
