The Collab Lab / Who We Are


Our participants enter The Collab Lab with a strong baseline of coding skills including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and React. They leave with experience in how software teams work.

To participate in a Collab Lab cohort means buying into a growth mindset, opening yourself to learning, and taking risks in a relatively low-stakes setting. Seasoned technologists guide these early career developers as they pair program, review each others’ code, and submit & merge pull requests. They are also coached on how to be effective on a fully distributed (remote) team by people who do it every day for a living.

Alums of The Collab Lab report being better equipped to talk about how they work on a team as well as the thought processes behind their work, helping them perform better in job interviews for technical roles. Hire them!

Collab Lab’s mentors are the lifeblood of the program. All of our mentors are working software developers and engineering leaders. They volunteer their time because they believe in leaving tech better than they found it.
