Online Starts Tuesday

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Little reminder, our next online cohort begins on Tuesday. If you’re interested, now is the time to enroll.

Learning to code is probably one of the toughest things you’ll do. In your life. Ever. 

Sometimes you need to throw yourself into that fire to see if you emerge burned, or forged into something stronger. It takes grit, intellect, and a lot of work to do this. But those who come out the other side are forged for a new life. It’s not always fun, it’s certainly not always easy, but if you succeed you open yourself to an infinite array of strong opportunities.

Our next cohort begins on Tuesday. Challenge yourself.

What is Launch Academy Online?
Launch Academy Online was born from our On Campus program that we’ve been running for 3 years now, and we’ve helped to place over 250 students in their first job as web developers. From the very early days, we were always running into amazing people that, for whatever reason, could not relocate to Boston and quit their job or uproot their family. We really wanted to serve those folks, so we knew from very early on that we wanted to provide an Online version of what we’re teaching on campus.

We could have done what others have done: throw a camera in the room here in Boston and hire outside contractors to meet with students once per week. That didn’t sit well with us, so we went a different way; a human way.

Our program was designed around the idea that learning is better together. You’ll be working through the curriculum and collaborating with your peers, asking questions during daily office hours, and meeting with your mentor—a full-time Launch Academy instructor or an alum of the on-campus program—for live 1-on-1 video sessions. We’re creating an online learning experience that provides you with access to what makes the learning quick, while also taking into account that you have a life outside of your studies, and that it needs to fit your lifestyle.

What we’ve done is we’ve taken our entire curriculum and divided into a set of core phases. We start with the very basics. It is a zero prerequisite program, so we start at ground zero. We take you from command line basics and build your capabilities all of the way up to full stack developer with a firm understanding of Ruby, Rails, Databases, and JavaScript.

How do I know if I’m ready for Launch Academy Online?
Launch Academy Online is a zero prerequisite program. We start you on day 1: we’ll help you get familiar with the command line, and with the very basics of programming. The real key is to ensure you can dedicate the time and energy to your studies. If you’ve been looking for a place to learn, and you have an interest in software development, this is the program for you.

When does the next class start?
