Through socials where you can meet other high school students, undergraduate college students, and professionals in the tech industry, you'll be able to build your network of connections that’ll last beyond this summer.
Mentors will hold work sessions to answer questions about a product or anything related to your work and curiosity. The mentors will always be ther to answer both your technical and non-technical questions.
In a group of 8, you’ll be exposed to diverse minds and ideas that will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. With a project manager leading the developer advocates, everyone will be learning from each other to grow in your own ways. At the end of the day, the most important thing is that you will learn and work in a team.
Students will create interactive tutorials, blogs, videos, posters, and other learning experiences to make various technologies accessible to fellow students.

Become a Hero! Work with our program to code and market great software!
This program takes place entirely online. Most meetings will be held through Zoom and messaging communications are executed through Slack. You can participate from anywhere as long as you have access to a reliable internet source that supports video chat. Make sure you are able to participate from a space with limited distractions to maximize your experience.
Due to the limited time of the program, we do not have a lot of time to teach you how to code, so you will need to be proficient in at least one programming language to participate. You should have some experience working on a variety of projects using that language and feel comfortable using it to solve real-world, practical problems. However, throughout the program, you will definitely gain new coding skills and real applicable skills to apply in your future endeavors.
In order to be eligible to participate in this program, you must meet the following criteria:
- Currently enrolled in a High School in the United States
- Able to commit (5-8) hours per week to this program
- Know how to code in at least one language
- Proficient English speaker
- Have access to a quality internet connection with video call
This program is offered completely free to students.
You will be expected to dedicate 5-8 hours per week to this program. There will be 3 weekly meetings that you are required to attend, with additional meetings and 1:1s that you can choose to set up based on your own schedule. Depending on the week and how your tasks are delegated by your project manager, you may have to spend more than 5 to 8 hours a week.
The meeting dates and times will be a lot more flexible once school starts in the fall, and we will make sure that all students are able to attend any meetings/events held until the end of the program. Class schedules should not affect your ability to participate in the program. I would also like to add that the workload will be more front-heavy, so that should help balance your school and the program.
You will be working on an Integrated Marketing Campaign (IMC) with a team of other developer advocates and a project manager in creating a live webinar as the end product. Every Friday, there will be a “Meet the Devs” work session in which you will get the chance to collaborate on the project. In this process, you will learn valuable skills in programming and marketing. You may also get the chance to work with our industry partners like Microsoft and Postman and even get the chance to interview with them!
Once the decisions are out for who got into our program, students will choose what project/IMC peaks their interest the most. Project managers will choose first on June 10th and then developer advocates will choose after.
As for now, we are currently not offering any reconsiderations to applications. We understand that this one-time decision may be frustrating and are working on providing feedback to everyone that we reject for the program. We also have hopes of running this program regularly and encourage you to apply next time.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate for mistakes on any applications. We understand that this may be frustrating but we will take in consideration the possibilities of small mistakes on applications. We encourage you to review and check your applications before submitting to avoid any misunderstandings.
