    Amazing experience

    I recently completed the software development bootcamp and overall, I had a positive experience. The instructors were knowledgeable and supportive, and the curriculum was well-structured and covered a wide range of topics. The hands-on projects and group work helped me to solidify my understanding of the material and apply what I had learned. Additionally, the career services team provided valuable resources and support to help me find a job in the field. The only downside was that the p...

    Do you want to get a real life product development experience? Co.Lab is the answer

    Co.Lab is the complete package if you want to get your hands dirty. You get to work on any product of your choice agreed upon by your team. 

    As a software developer, I had the opportunity to work with a designer and a product manager. We had standup meetings as a team and with our mentor.

    Co.Lab makes the building process smooth as we were given weekly targets and various resources to guide us. This ensured everyone were on track

    During the program we were encouraged...

    The Best

    I joined Co.lab with no previous experience with working on a project across teammates in a remote distributed team which varying time zones.

    This was a first and very educative one. I got to see another equally important aspect side of the software-building process that I did not know about after months of learning how to code on my own.

    This program helped me build my decision-making skills on what tools to use to accomplish the problem at hand.

    Product Designer

    I had a great experience with Co.Lab! I'm a post-bootcamp grad and I didn't get to interact or work on projects with a PM or devs before this. Not having this experience really hurt my interviewing capabilities since I had no direct experience as a designer on real shipped products. Being in Co.Lab gave me more confidence in that I was able to apply my design process and thinking abilities while also helping me better understand how a product development cycle works. As a result of my ex...

    Hello Christine,

    Thanks for the high praises! We're glad that you had such a great time with us, and was able to gain the real-world experience you needed to break the Catch-22 problem of finding real-work experience without getting hired. 

    You were amazing and we're very excited to know where you'll be at in the future.

    Join Once and Belong in Tech Forever

    This is one of the best Bootcamps I have completed regarding real world software development experience, team work, software development life cycle and learning resources provided. The bootcamp is organised in the best way to support people falling in the lack of experience deadlock to break through and deliver real world products. After the bootcamp, I was able to identify my faults which I have done before in software development. Thanks to all the amazing instructors, cohort members, ...

    Hello Valence,

    Co.Lab is more than about taking classes together. It's also about learning how you function in a cross-functional setting so that you'll know what your strengths and weaknesses are, as well as making the necessary professional improvements to make yourself attractive to the job market.

    And it seems like you were able to gain much of the same learnings at Co.Lab. We're proud of you!

    Great First Step for Finding a Job in Tech

    Coming directly form online tutorials, this was a great first hand experience of how to apply my knowledge to real life projects with a cross-functional team. It also taught me a lot of the practical skills needed for building my career and built my confidence to put myself out there and interact with my community. And ultimately it was this experience that helped me land my first job as a Software Developer. 
    Thank you Co.Lab <3

    Hello Sara,

    Congratulations on your new Dev role! We found that many of our students are already well-equipped to land their first tech role - one of the only critical problems being the lack of confidence to communicate their technical knowledge effectively, and just put themselves out there.

    We're glad that the program was able to help you in this aspect!

    The Co.Lab team and community are very proud of you.

    Co.lab kickstarted my product career

    I learned a lot during Co.lab that I still use to this day. The content is solid. I didn't have the best team but that experience taught me a lot about being flexible and rolling with the punches like it is in the real world. Helen is a great human being and really tries to treat Co.lab participants like they are family. I ended up transitioning into an APM role at a Forbes top start-up after my stint in Co.lab.

    Product Designer

    Co.Lab was an incredible experience. Going into the program I was hoping to reignite my love of working on a team after a lonely year of freelancing, I was hoping to gain confidence, and I wanted a portfolio piece I could really speak to, especially during job interviews. 

    I can confidently say that I got all of that and so much more out of the program. With Co.Lab I got to work on a team with a Product Manager and two developers and together we created a product called Podball th...

    Not Just A Course, But An Amazing Experience

    Participating in the PM track has been the highlight of my year thus far. I am so glad I decided to push myself outside of my comfort zone. This program has provided such great support from not just the mentors and my team, but the entire community.  I found it to be quite an intense program, but in a good way. I learned how to work collaboratively with a designer and two developers to create a functional MVP.

    Fantastic Enhancer for Portfolio/Resume

    You can get SO much out of this program. In the course of 5 weeks I developed an application with a designer and a product manager. This experience gave me a sneak peak on how it is to work with a team and to construct my own goals. I grew not only as a developer but also as a team player. 10/10 would do again.

    My favorite part of this whole journey was not just developing a real application but when I got to show off what I worked on.

    The course that leaves you with practical experience to apply for PM jobs

    This was a fantastic journey and it provided me the combination of practical experience and community support that I never would have gotten elsewhere. Immensely grateful for the opportunity because all I have to do now is build on my existing experience. This course empowered me and I am no longer having to start from scratch. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for experience.

    Learning empathy

    The Co.lab bootcamp taught me that it's okay to be vulnerable, ask for help when you need to.
    It's not always about your technical ability, learning to communicate rightly is also very key especially when you are working with a cross-functional team.
    Setting achievable milestones is another thing I learnt during the bootcamp, it's a good way to track progress and know what is working and what is not.
