This annual prize was established in 2014 thanks to a generous donation from Lighthouse Labs and provides one student the opportunity to attend the Lighthouse Labs Web Development Bootcamp cost-free. The Lighthouse Labs Prize, valued at $8,000, is intended to recognize promising, creative students in the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT) at Simon Fraser University who have a demonstrated interest in web development. The prize is open to all FCAT undergraduate and graduate students.
Lighthouse Labs is a Vancouver-based coding school, where students learn full-stack web development through immersive bootcamp-style courses. Fast paced and rigorous, classes are focus on minimizing lectures and maximizing the time spent on building things in supervised labs so that students learn more in a shorter amount of time.
SIAT student Yan Hong won the very first Lighthouse Labs Prize in 2014. When asked if the program was worthwhile to students, Yan is confident: “Definitely. I learned a lot of web development skills in those eight weeks, and am now able to pick up any new web development technology with ease."
This course is ideal for anyone looking to enter the startup community or that wants to build their own web applications.
