Where are you guys located, and would you be interested in ever doing things like internships for new software engineers?

I, too, am interested. I have no degree. I'm self-taught, and have plans to go to college or a bootcamp, but so far have not been able to. I know Python and some Ruby. (as well as HTML/CSS, but who doesn't?)

If anyone has any suggestions, please feel free to email me at:

Edit: I'm in the Tulsa, OK area.

Were you able to find anything? I am moving to Tulsa and am looking for a company to develop my skills with.

I've improved my skills, started at a college, and still found nothing. No one wants non-degree holding employees, for the most part. Me being a white male, not fitting any of the descriptors for underrepresented minorities, my chances of finding a job without a degree are pretty slim. I don't know if that translates to all areas, but it seems to be pretty true, here in OK.

I spoke too soon, perhaps? It's just frustrating how exclusive the software community is to beginners.

Try the following google search and add the following stipulations after receiving the response:

paid internships programming -degree -bachelors -bachelor's -masters -bs -ms

Title: Software Engineer
New to You: Haven't Seen Yet
Location: Anywhere/Remote
Date Posted: Within a Week
Requirements: No Experience

This ought to bring up a number of opportunities. They're low level, though, so probably thousands of applicants.
