“One of the key insights here was realizing that the best engineering schools in the world, the ones that companies want to hire from, require people to have industry experience—so you go back and forth from internship to academia,” Johnson says. “What we’ve done is replicate that model to create a modern guild, essentially, for software developers. In some ways, it’s a very new thing—we’re creating a system of education that funds itself through the work our students are doing. But in some ways it actually looks like an apprentice model from the guilds in the Middle Ages.”
