Announcing the 2016 ProtoGuide

Today, I'm thrilled to announce that MK joins The Ember Cast as the Spring 2016 ProtoGuide. The ProtoGuide experience is our capstone offering that combines deep learning about current issues in global leadership and real time serving on various Ember projects. For MK, we are working on setting up a few engagements where she will work with some of our trusted partners in her specific areas of interest. The rest of the time, she'll do some reading, writing and helping with Ember projects. She'll also spend some dedicated time learning from and getting to know our Board of Directors.

The ProtoGuide concept is one of our best and my favorite. The seeds of it were conjured up in 2005 when a high school student sought to do an internship with me and we've tweaked and grown it since then, almost every year. It gives me a chance to hang with some amazing young people, it represents our best teaching and forms a leadership pipeline for Ember Guides.

It's not for everyone - you have to be interested in this kind of stuff, you have to have enough time to invest in this and you have to laugh at my jokes. But MK is all of that and a well known quantity - we've known her since she was a little kid. She also was a part of both X teams in 2013 and 2014. I'm excited for what and how she is going to learn this term as a ProtoGuide and I'm pretty she's going to help us crank up the possibilities for ProtoGuides of the future.

Thanks in advance for your support.
