"It was such an amazing experience filled with great people and awesome learning opportunities. You really get to contribute to the technical design of the products, transcendent of just the code, which were skills I was able to apply to other careers. The people, both other coops and management, also made the experience quite memorable and made me excited everyday to come to work."

"Working at the lab was one of my best decisions! I had so much fun working with other cool co-ops and full timers. The co-ops even had a monthly lunch at Kinkaku together! My design skills had also improved a lot by the end of term as I learned so much about design from the various projects I worked on."

"The lab provided me an opportunity to learn and develop projects from the ground up. I was in control of 100% of the project I worked on, and that gave me an immense out of freedom. I also played a LOT of table tennis (or ping pong for the unaware) and got extremely good at it by the end of the term. It was a lot of fun and a great learning experience."

Working at LCBO|next as a UI/UX Designer allowed me to learn about designing visual user interfaces for applications, voice user interfaces, and digital screen displays! I was able to learn a lot about the design process, creating journey maps, and how to deliver persuading presentations. On top of that, I got to explore and strengthen my front-end development skills by learning React and node.js and bring my designs to life!
