Dream of working at a top tech company? Join us!

Work with your mentor & two other students.

Tell us what you love in technology, and where you want your career to take you. We'll match you with the perfect industry mentor and up to two other students at your skill level.
(Beginner-track attendees: we'll match you with a former intern from a tech company who has time to provide you with more support.)

Create or contribute to real-world, open-source projects.

Learn to ship real software that helps real people using the latest industry tools. (Ever wondered what “Kubernetes” is? Or how to set up a GraphQL backend in Typescript?)
It's like a real-world internship at a leading tech company, but 100% online.

Daily tech talks, career panels, and more.

What do recruiters look for when you meet them? How does Microsoft deploy machine learning modules? What does a day-in-the-life look like for a technical artist?
CodeDay Labs has daily opportunities to learn from leaders and build a professional network.

Get ready to land your dream job or internship next year.

Our students have daily opportunities to do practice interviews and get resume feedback from tech hiring managers and recruiters.

Multiple tracks. What's your experience level?

Intermediate Track

More guided projects for college freshmen/sophomores/juniors with technical skills, but limited experience working independently.
This is the right track for you if you're a college students who has completed 101/102-level CS classes but not much more (and high school students with experience building projects at hackathons).
You'll be matched with a mentor from the technology industry, like at most traditional in-person internships, and will build a polished app/feature.
(No fee; not a paid internship.)

Advanced Track

For college juniors/seniors who have higher-level CS knowledge or others with significant experience building projects.
This is the right track for you if you're a college student with experience beyond the 101/102-level CS or Engineering classes, or a student who has built projects on your own time.
You'll be matched with a mentor from the technology industry, like at most traditional in-person internships, and will build a polished app/feature.
(No fee; not a paid internship.)

We've helped thousands of students get their start in technology since 2009.

As an international student in a programming major, you guys totally helped me to start my wonderful career path! In a three years degree, I had you guys as my first experience, Meta as my second, and Microsoft as my third, and this last one gave me a full time return offer.
Luiza Cartaxo, Labs Advanced-Track
I loved being able to work as a team and gain real world experience about coding but at the same time also having the opportunity to learn something new.
Kelly Dong, Labs Advanced-Track
Being a Venezuelan immigrant, Labs was the first time that I got true exposure to a community of tech people that I could rely on. Fast forward a couple of years and now I'm three and a half months away from graduating college and have a job as a SWE at the Microsoft HQ right after I graduate.
Daniel Lobaton, Labs Beginner-Track
I began my CodeDay Labs internship with no background in using React Native, but came out of this internship knowing the ins and outs of React Native thanks to my team and my mentor, Eric. I highly recommend CodeDay Labs as a chance to apply your knowledge to real-world applications
Vivian Wang, Labs Beginner-Track
I really enjoyed learning how to use new technology such as Angular, Node, Sequelize, and Joi. Working with my teammates and interacting with each other was one of my favorite parts of this internship. Just helping each other out, working, learning, and growing together as developers was really great. Also the mentor was very helpful.
Alain Nshimirimana, Labs Advanced-Track
My experience as a CodeDay Labs intern certainly exceeded my expectations. My favorite part about being an intern was getting to learn and work with Python Django. I found working with Django to be difficult yet also fun. At the beginning of the internship, because I only had experience with ReactJS, I thought I would only be working on the frontend component of the app which we built. However, I ended up only working with ReactJS (i.e. the frontend) for about a week before I became responsible for the backend. I'm really glad I got this exposure because I found that I enjoy working with backend-related stuff.

Falling Sand
Beginner Track

Mentor: Charlie Liu, Student at Yale University
Ever heard of a "falling sand" game? (if not, check this out: https://sandspiel.club) Not only is this a really fun project to work on, but it also incorporates several topics outside of CS, such as physics and basic biology concepts. The project also doesn't have to mimic the traditional "falling sand" style - it could incorporate some twist or new element, such as adding a "person" character or drawing some inspiration from the Sugar, Sugar game (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWCkmqUaZpM). Ready to start building your own sandbox world?

COVIZ 19
Advanced Track

Mentor: Yang Xu, Engineer at LexisNexis Risk Solution
We will design a system to fetch data from REST api and store data in a database. The system is comprehensive with various functionalities such as input/output, caching, logging, etc. The system has to be highly scalable so that it could handle big amount of data.

Krino
Advanced Track

Mentor: Tim Van Cleave, Engineer at SPS Commerce
As a photographer one of the most important things you can do is share your work to build a reputation for yourself, but often it's not as easy to get well-organized feedback about your work from others. If you want to improve your art, either as a professional or just a casual enthusiast, it's extremely important to get your work in front of others so you can keep improving.

This project aims to solve this problem by creating a site where photographers can upload their portfolio and then have fellow photographers leave comments about things that can be improved, things they like, etc.

Key user requirements are:
* Users can upload their own photos and display them in a clean, easy to view way.
* This includes the users display name, home city, etc.
* (optional) use the photo's EXIF data to display information about the camera, lens, and other settings interesting to a photographer. Location information would be super cool as well!
* Users can indicate that they want only some of their photos to be reviewed by others
* Users can leave comments on individual photos where a review is requested

This project will teach a variety of useful technical skills, including:
* Developing a clean, fast API using Django and Django Rest Framework
* Uploading photos to a cloud hosting service like S3
* Modern React web app development, including using component libraries and other tools to simplify development
* User-centered design throughout the project
* AGILE best practices (don't worry, just a light version!)
* Having fun while making something awesome!
