The Y Combinator Experience + Dev Life

Details

Hey Folks!

Hope everyone is doing well! We're excited to announce that the folks at CoLab have offered to not only put together a talk for the last meetup of the year, but are also offering to host us in their new office space! Many thanks to the CoLab folks for hosting. See their talk abstract below:

------------------------------

After spending a summer in Silicon Valley at Y Combinator where companies like Reddit, Twitch, Stripe, Dropbox and Airbnb were born, the founders of CoLab will share their story and how others can take advantage of the program and incredible network/opportunities that come with it. The founders of gmail, twitch and pebble directly mentored CoLab and we are excited to share our lessons learned with the entire community in NL!

The talk will cover:

The Program:
• How to get accepted
• What happens in YC
• Why being a developer as a founder or early employee is such an advantage at YC
• How to get in touch with YCs network
• How to get hired at any YC Company

How to Ship a Product the YC Way:
• Best Practices
• Recommended Tooling
• YC Famous Stories

------------------------------

There you have it! We're excited to hear about CoLab's Y Combinator journey, and hope you are too. Look forward to seeing you all there!

See you soon,
Mike & Scott
