There’s a bunch of unemployed people. There are a bunch of startups and other tech companies that are totally starved for engineers. How the fuck do you turn some of the unemployed people into *viable* tech talent? It sure as hell ain’t college, and it while CodeAcademy and others are a great resource they haven’t created a viable pipeline yet.
Maybe we need more forgiving languages and frameworks that can serve as a bridge between “Hey I learned how to type!” and Endofunctors and shit.
