It can be difficult to hire people with the exact skills you want or need for your DevOps team. Just look at the job boards! There’s tons of competition and not nearly enough people to meet the demand. With a total size of 8 employees, DNSimple decided to take a different approach by starting an apprenticeship program to train people with little to no experience in DevOps. These slides were setup to deliver over a Webinar for Chef.
