Practical knowledge gained via guided instruction and coding challenges is employed into workshop projects and Breakable Toys. Build and demo real products with fellow Launchers, Experience Engineers, Hiring Companies, and the technology community.
On average, the curriculum at a traditional CS degree program is comprised of 90% theoretical and 10% practical knowledge. We focus on those practical concepts which serves to provide the skills required to add immediate value as an effective software developer.
Gone are the days of coding 'rockstars and ninjas'. Today's leading technology and software companies seek dynamic developers who can collaborate within a team setting to solve complex problems. Launchers gain collaborative skills via pair programming and team oriented projects.
