“We continue to be grateful and in awe of our alumni community. Their courage to take such a giant leap in changing their career, combined with the willingness to share their story and experience, makes what we do rewarding beyond measure. Their success is our success. We’re thrilled to see them doing great things both in Boston and abroad!” said Dan Pickett, Co-Founder, Launch Academy.

Founded in 2012, Launch Academy teaches students to code through a hands-on and challenge-based approach, with on campus programs designed to get them into web development in just a semester. Before the program starts, Launchers complete 150-180 hours of interactive pre-learning where they learn the fundamentals of programming. Once on campus, students learn what they need to become professional, full-stack software developers via experiential learning. Over the last 7 years, Launch Academy has refined a learning path that is oriented towards pair programming and small group work.
