Cut through the noise. Launch your career the right way.

Constantly evolving curriculum
Learn the skills that matter in the job market today

The technology landscape changes almost daily, and so do the qualifications hiring managers are looking for in the market. That’s why we work directly with our hiring partners to ensure every graduating class is armed with the most up-to-date skillset possible and update our curriculum to reflect those needs in real-time.

Practical, hands-on learning
Build your confidence by doing the real work

Our curriculum is designed to prepare you for success as a professional developer in the real world. We condense the most practical skills and practices of a 4-year CS degree into just 18 weeks in order to maximize your return on time spent working with real code. We make sure you get the chance to get your hands in the code and get messy, from your first day of coding on — with plenty of support along the way.

Full-time, dedicated teaching staff
Learn from practicing experts who are committed to your success

Unlike other bootcamps, every member of the Launch team is a full-time employee. We have no other responsibilities or distractions besides teaching you what you need to be successful and ensuring you get there. We are all-in.

Lifetime learning access and support
Stay ahead of the curve for the rest of your career

You’ll never have to worry about being out of the loop on current hiring trends and new technologies. Long after you graduate, you’ll still get access to updated course content as soon as it’s released and have a direct line to career services for the rest of, well, forever.
