Introducing Gatsby Design Labs
Sign up for the Gatsby Design Labs user research program using the form below, giving us insight into how you use Gatsby and what types of studies you'd like to help with.
When you're selected for a study, we’ll email you details about the type of study we're running and our timeframe. Studies take place online — all you need is a computer and a great internet connection.
In the spirit of paying it forward, at the end of each study you can select a non-profit STEM organization that Gatsby will donate to on your behalf.
We’ll email you a link to fill out an online survey, which usually takes 5-10 minutes.
We’ll schedule a 30-45 minute Zoom session with you where we share a prototype of a design, asking you to complete specific tasks with follow-up questions.
We’ll schedule a 30-60 minute Zoom session with you, asking open-ended questions to learn about your experience with a particular feature or workflow within the Gatsbyverse.
You can choose to participate in any or all of these types of study.
We will only contact you when a study matches your interests, experience, and availability. Participation is always optional, and we will never contact you more than once a week, at the very most.
Anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes, depending on the type of study:
Our researchers our team is based in the US and the EU, so we would normally conduct studies during business hours (Monday to Friday, 9am to 11pm GMT+1) with possible exceptions if needed.
As a platform built around an open-source framework, Gatsby has succeeded because of our community (including you!). In the spirit of paying it forward, at the end of each study you can select one of the following nonprofits that Gatsby will donate to on your behalf:
We build pathways for young women of color to embrace the current tech marketplace as builders and creators by introducing them to skills in computer programming and technology.
Ada’s mission is to prepare women and gender expansive adults to be software developers while advocating for inclusive and equitable work environments. We prioritize serving Black, Latin, Indigenous Americans, Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander, LGBTQIA+, and low-income people.
Code2040 is a nonprofit activating, connecting, and mobilizing the largest racial equity community in tech to dismantle the structural barriers that prevent the full participation and leadership of Black and Latinx technologists in the innovation economy. Through events, trainings, early-career programs, and knowledge sharing, Code2040 equips Black and Latinx technologists and their allies with the tools, connections, and care they need to advocate for and achieve racial equity in the tech industry.
We aim to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. To this end, we have designed hardware, content and software for collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.

Your personal information will never be shared for marketing purposes and will only be used for research efforts.
