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.

At Launch Academy, we take an Agile approach to education.
At the end of each cohort, we reserve three weeks (which we call the offseason) to upgrade our instructional practices, curriculum, and technology.
Not only is it a great opportunity to reflect on how we're doing, but it also allows us to evaluate the needs of hiring managers to ensure we're focusing on the right technologies.
The goal? To give every incoming Launch Academy student the skills needed to get hire-ready in just 18 weeks.

Launch Academy isn't just a coding bootcamp—it's a community.
Our students learn together, support each other, and build relationships that last well beyond the 18-week program.
In fact, many will say that it's in the post-grad period that much of the "magic happens."

Developing a coding portfolio is an essential part of your software engineering journey.
And while it may be tempting to include every project you've ever worked on, remember, less is more.
Your portfolio should include:
🗸 A large capstone project that demonstrates your ability to accommodate data at scale
🗸 5-6 coding projects that are relevant to your desired career path
Don't forget to ensure your portfolio is free of broken code! It's important to run tests each time you update any of your projects.
At Launch Academy, you'll build production-ready apps to help strengthen your portfolio before graduation: https://bit.ly/3WVhoXN
