Ok, maybe I watch too much reality TV, but I’d like to see a show called “The Coding Apprentice.”
Starting with 18 candidates, each week, they are randomly divided into teams of 2, 3, or 4 (perhaps solo on odd weeks). Then a charity is selected with a need for an application. Each team is given a week to create a solution. The charity reviews the solutions and picks the application they like best. Then, the teams that weren’t picked go back to “the conference room” and make a presentation to Steve Jobs about the merits of their solution and the problems with the other teams solutions. Then Steve fires one candidate. At the end, the winner is given funding to start a software company and can hire some of the candidates that weren’t chosen.
What reality TV show would you like to see “Geekified?”
