I just heard of an interesting NYC program called the Turning Fellowship that aims to bring new developer talent to New York City. A couple of venture firms appear to be spearheading this effort; PE Hub quoted one of them as saying, “Entrepreneurs complain about a lack of talent in New York City.” No kidding! There is a lack of great development talent everywhere!
Anyways, the program sounds like a good idea, as it will provide students with programming skills paid internships at NYC startups. This could provide very positive experiences to students looking to gain some real-life skills (and help them figure out if they want to join startups when they graduate too!)
Anyone know of other programs like this in Boston?
