Launch 101 - Intro to Coding for Beginners 
 
Join us in Boston for an evening or weekend workshop where we’ll create an interactive game together using JavaScript, jQuery, HTML, and CSS. This is an excellent opportunity for you to dip your toes into the world of coding, while also seeing first-hand the difference stellar teaching can make!
Learn With a Crew
Is this you?
Learning to code is tough, but learning alone is even harder. Maybe you’ve asked yourself: 
  • "Where do I start?"
  • "What does this error message mean?"
  • "Is learning to code for me?"
It doesn't have to be so frustrating! If you’re struggling to learn development on your own, join us in Boston. Our welcoming community and atmosphere will make for a fun day/night of coding. 
Learn by Doing
Build a Cool Project
Rock, Paper, Scissors...shoot!

Take on your computer in a game of luck. 

Together, we’ll build out a web-based version of the game you used to play with your siblings and friends on long road trips. Don't worry, the computer doesn't quit when it gets bored.
Hybridized Learning
All the benefits of learning in a classroom, without missing the opportunity to revisit and expand on the material.

"I completed Launch Academy last summer, and it was hands down the best decision I have ever made for my career. I had no experience with software engineering, and I managed to double my salary from my pre-launch job within a year and a half post-completion of launch."

Coming into any bootcamp is a big leap for most people. The outcome from Launch exceeded my expectations. I was able to learn not only how to program, but how to motivate myself and push myself beyond what I thought I was capable of. More than that, the career services is excellent and I landed a job shortly after graduation.

Course Overview
Get Started Here! Together, we’ll discover the world of coding in a fun and interactive class. Along the way, you’ll get a feel for what Launch Academy is all about.

Spend a few hours with us on campus and create your first app. Dive into JavaScript, the hottest and most commonly used programming language of the web.

While we explore JavaScript and what it means to be a developer, we’ll build an interactive version of the classic game Rock, Paper, Scissors. By learning the Launch Academy way, you’ll leave the course with an interactive web page to hang on your mom’s digital refrigerator.

Because we want you to get the most from the program, we’ve limited the number of seats in the class.
