    Software Developer @ HZDG

    Launch Academy is a very intense and hardcore immersive learning experience. The fact that the students have a working deployed app after 10 weeks as well as a plethora of completed coding challenges and projects says alot about the efficiency of Launch Academy.

    Software Developer @ Fiksu

    I've never before had a more productive period in my life. If you're really dedicated to changing your life & you know you love to code, I can't think of a better experience. I've never learned so much in my life. The experienced engineer team was brilliant and knowledgeable. I now have over 600 hours of coding under my belt & the confidence to call myself a top-notch Junior Web Developer.

    Software Developer @ Bidding for Good

    I had a great experience. I learned more than I expected, worked with an incredible group of people and had a blast developing cool things for ten weeks. Upon completion of the course, we had initial interviews with approx. 30 companies. I had several follow up interviews and I accepted an incredible position as a Rails Developer within two weeks of graduation.

    Software Developer @ 3Play Media

    I highly recommend Launch Academy to anyone who is thinking about switching to software development. Launch Academy found a great formula for bootcamp success. The instructors are friendly and patient, the students they admit are all motivated and willing to help each other out.

    Software Developer @ MeYou Health

    To put it simply, the dedicated staff @ Launch Academy expedited my goal of becoming a web developer. I had toyed with the idea of going back to school for an MBA but due to my former college education, I had become distrustful of "higher education" and it's generic degrees. I took a chance on Launch Academy & they never let me down. I recommend this program to anyone looking to enhance their skills or change careers.
