York University Magazine caught up with our first cohort of 10 computer science students in Dev Degree, a work-integrated learning program offered through a Lassonde X Shopify partnership.
The four-year Dev Degree combines 4,000 hours of York computer science education with 4,500 hours of paid work experience at Shopify’s downtown Toronto offices. Shopify also pays the students’ tuition for the full program.
