About The Collab Lab Program

  • Project type: Client-side JavaScript application
  • Tech stack: React for UI development, Firebase for both database and hosting,
  • Team size: 4 developers
  • Project duration: 40 hours per developer (5 hours/week over 8 weeks)

Successful Collab Lab developers come in having already learned basic web development and programming concepts. We don’t teach coding; we teach collaboration! You don’t need a ton of experience, but you should have completed the equivalent of a coding bootcamp where you’ve learned (at a minimum) basic HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and have completed a project or two in React.

How to apply

Our next cohort will kick off on April 2, 2023. We will run teams in North America and Europe/Africa time zones. The application window will be open from March 12 to March 18. We will notify you of your status the following week.

Return to this page between March 12 and March 18 to submit your application

What happens after I apply?

There are two possible outcomes:

🤗 You get accepted. Yay! We’ll be in touch with next steps.

😥 You get rejected. For now…try again!

We anticipate more applicants than we will have slots. If you’re qualified, but the numbers just didn’t work out, we’ll let you know that and you can totally apply the next time using the same info. If, on the other hand, we evaluated your experience and determined you didn’t meet the minimum requirements in some way, we’ll let you know that, too. That way you can put in the work to increase your chances of being accepted before the next application window opens.

All of this means you may have to apply multiple times in order to be selected. The good news is, you’ll know where you stand!

Have questions?

If you have any questions about the application process or what it’s like to participate in a Collab Lab cohort, please don’t hesitate to email Andrew at andrew@the-collab-lab.codes.

Thank you so much for your interest in The Collab Lab! We look forward to working with you at some point in the future!
