    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...

    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, ...

    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

    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. 

    I am proud of what our team has built over the past 5 weeks and am exc...

    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. 
    In the last week of this program, your te...

    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.

    This program gave me valuable experiences

    Co.Lab was such an experience, you get to work on a team to ship a product from concept to deployment. You gain experience working with a cross-functional team, grow your network and meet other techies, and a better understanding of product-building fundamentals, processes, and frameworks. This program helped me gain experience similar to what working in a real tech environment was like and an extra project under my belt.

    Learn by doing!

    Taking part in this program was a great way to get hands-on practice building a product and working with a cross-functional team. The community aspect is also very valuable when looking for advice or different perspectives. To get the full experience and the real value, you need to really commit time and effort, so be ready for that and if you do, it will be a great experience for you too!

    My amazing Co.Lab experience

    Technical skills can be useless most of the times if they are not backed by professional, soft and other useful non-technical skillset. That's why I decided to choose Co.Lab as the best place to go in order to solve this challenge. Through the Co.Lab 2-months program, I was able to gain extensive knowledge on real MVP product ideation, building as well as shipping the MVP product. I was also able to earn vast skillset on team building and collaboration, time management, proactivity, hard...

    Good program and you get what you put in

    I joined Co.Lab as a designer for a cohort earlier this year. While there were difficulties with my team, Sefunmi and Helen were both incredibly supportive, understanding and helpful in getting a great value out of my time. For those looking for a real-world project to put in their portfolio while they look to break into tech, I definitely recommend Co.Lab as an experience.
