Lighthouse Labs is based out of Canada’s most dynamic tech hubs, where you’ll be immersed into full-stack web or iOS development through hands-on experience. Our industry drivencurriculum and rigorous education standards have created the ultimate result for our graduates: over 95% employment rate.
The campus is located in the heart of downtown Toronto at Devhub; Canada's first and only coworking space exclusively for developers. The beautiful 12,000 sq. ft. brick & beam space is filled with meeting rooms, customized wall art, natural light and open-concept coworking areas. Devhub members and Lighthouse Labs students are immersed in the developer community with 24/7 access to the campus, couches and beer fridge, plus the support of a brilliant team of instructors and mentors.
The open concept student space includes a ton of unique features that makes it a hub for students, instructors and mentors to learn and grow together. The classroom component of the room consists of grouped wired desks (that double as white boards), lounge space, bean bag chairs, and a builtin satellite system for remote students. Visually, the space is bright and open, lined with windows and columns. The furniture can be reconfigured to create event space. You can find upcoming events on their Meetup page.
The student space also includes a picnicstyle work and eating area. This colourful hub is typically where students have lunch or are coding during breakout sessions. It includes outdoorsy features such as patio lights, picnic tables and yes, fake grass carpets. There’s also a colourful custom mural created by local Toronto artist Heidi Berton, that embodies Lighthouse Labs’ culture and mission.
Devhub launched in April 2016 as Canada's first education and coworking space exclusively for developers. In this space, developers from across Canada can come and connect to work on software projects of all sizes, while benefitting from the community immersion and mentorship found at Lighthouse Labs.
In launching Devhub, Lighthouse Labs was able to design the space from the ground up. It’s fully catered to developers, and includes glass desks, white boards, Herman Miller chairs, lounges, a community wall and more. There’s also custom pixelated portraits of notable developers, designed by Lighthouse Labs’ Designer, Andrew Tsang.
Developer-specific community events are also commonly held in the space, which allows for endless opportunities for Lighthouse Labs students to connect with the Developer community. Hackathons, Demo Days, learn to code workshops and programming for developers of all levels are a few examples of the types of events in the space. Lighthouse Labs aims to be the dev community together at any chance they get.
Each private room is named after a different Canadian invention, including Hoops (basketball), Java (coding language), 56k (modem) and Sonar. Elements of the room names are also incorporated into the interior design of each space which feature a range of elements including chalkboard walls, codecentric artwork, and classic work space. The Sonar room is large enough to be used for lectures.
It’s no secret that Lighthouse Labs staff are a friendly bunch who love to work with others in the community. The staff space is shared with fellow tech friends BetaKit, MobileSyrup as well as Functional Imperative a boutique software consultancy. The area includes meeting rooms, a lounge area, standing desks and the office dog, Noelle.
