Our Tectorian of the Week is: Lighthouse Labs!
Lighthouse Labs was created as an experiment in 2013 by a group of software developers with a passion for code, mentorship, and education. Their mission: to continuously find the best ways to train the next generation of developers and to transform the way tech education is delivered.
Last March they brought their lab to Victoria, right to Fort Tectoria. They’ve partnered with VIATEC, Metalab, Ladies Learning Code, and Emplomacy to immerse their bootcamp students right in the middle of the local tech community.
This week Lighthouse Labs was featured on CHEK News and as a part of the Provincial Government’s announcement of a $600k boost to meet labour needs in the tech sector.
Lighthouse Labs is hosting a Demo Day at Fort Tectoria on July 21st from 6pm to 8pm. You can expect pizza, a chance to rub shoulders with an incredible network of developers and entrepreneurs, and an inside look at the skill set of their new graduates.
Congratulations to Lighthouse Labs for getting deserved coverage, and our province’s technology sector!
Lighthouse Labs empowers students to master the craft of software development, launch careers, and contribute to the incredible growth of Canada’s tech industry. With over 80 mentors and 350 graduates who have joined the ride, they’re still just a bunch of developers developing developers.
