What is deCODE?
deCODE invites selected hackers to work alongside company engineers from high-growth tech companies to work on challenging and interesting technical challenges.
Our thesis: 'There is nothing like working with someone to get to know them'.
Students meet companies first-hand, by working through a challenging problem with the company's engineers.
Plus students end up with a cool project to add to their portfolio.
Companies see students in action, coding and working in a team. Just like the real world. Not like an interview or career faire.
We're tackling the technical interview process, we know it's broken. And want to change the way it happens.
So we provide that opportunity, for awesome ambitious hackers that want to learn, and awesome companies that want to hire them.
Who can participate?
Anyone with coding knowledge can apply, however, only selected hackers will be able to participate.
Selected students will be notified a few weeks prior to the event.
How much does it cost?
Gratis (FREE) :)
Admission and participation is free, and covers the food costs, lodging and swag for the two days of hacking.
Do you offer travel reimbursements?
Yup! Send your receipts to firstname.lastname@example.org after the event, and we'll either send you a cheque or e-transfer - your call!
How big are the teams?
Students will be placed in teams of 7, and will be accompanied by engineers from their selected company.
Do I get to keep the project after the event?
Hell yeah! We always try to ensure the workshops are as non-confidential as possible.
(It's not free labour)
What should I bring?
Your talent and laptop.
