Learn to Code the Human Way
Launch Academy trains software developers and launches careers through our 18-week course.
Our students, who we lovingly call “Launchers”, gain job-ready skills through our approach to education. We give them the tools to dig deeper in any area of the stack after graduation.
Before the program starts, Launchers complete 150-180 hours of interactive pre-learning where they learn the fundamentals of programming. Once on campus, we teach our students what they need to become professional, full-stack software developers. Over the last 7 years, we have refined a structured learning path that enables Launchers to learn with a challenge-based approach where Launchers collaborate via pair programming and small group work.
Our instructional philosophy, emphasizing Test Driven Development (TDD), pair programming and Agile Methodologies, aims to recreate the environment of a software development team and has successfully trained 750+ aspiring developers into effective contributors that can code from day one.

“Practice like you play” is more than a vague philosophy here at Launch Academy.
It’s the value system behind everything we teach—and the way we teach it.
Learn how "practice like you play" learning makes you job-ready from Day One:

Our current session is in full swing!
Students are digging into the fundamentals of coding to prepare for their six-week, in-person immersive, which begins next month.
The bad news? It's too late to jump on board for this current cohort. The good news? A new session is just a few short months away.

Everyone knows that if you want to learn an instrument, the fastest way to begin is to simply start playing—not sit down and study music theory.
Yet when it comes to preparing for a hands-on career, many of us still spend most of our time sitting in lecture halls rather than actually *doing* the work.
This approach is inefficient and doesn't provide students with the real-world skills they need to succeed. That's why our students "practice like they play." Learn what it is—and how it differs from traditional education.

Our coding bootcamp grads have options!
Many new coders begin their careers as full-stack engineers because it allows them to develop their front-end and back-end development skills.
However, with tech skills in such high demand, our graduates have found opportunities in a wide range of settings.
Here are just some of the career paths you might consider after bootcamp:
💻 Software developer and tester
👥 Project management
💼 Sales engineer
📈 Marketing analyst
. . . and so many more.
Where will your tech career take you?
