Executive Summary

The Bootstrap IT Project is built on the assumption that motivated young adults can learn valuable IT skills without classrooms or teachers and generate real commercial value in the process.

The project goal would be to provide value to both participants and (in one possible model) sponsoring companies. Young adults looking to find careers in the IT industry would enter a flexible environment where they can quickly learn real-world, in-demand skills while working on actual projects and adding depth to their resumes.

A mentoring institution would potentially benefit in the short-term from intern-quality labor, and over the longer term from access to smart, young IT talent.

I believe this process offered some important takeaways: Motivated individuals can build significant projects with very minimal infrastructure overhead. Almost any deployment can be accurately simulated with nothing more than a couple of cheap laptops and a router.
