There's a special moment that happens a few times every year. A student at Launch Academy will stand up and shout, “it works! Oh my God, it works!” It's like witnessing the making of a mad scientist. It's special. That feeling is what we strive for, and what we want to bring to everyone. In many ways, it's why Launch Academy exists.
You can have a moment like that, too—at home, for free! Check out The HTML Show, hosted by Launch Academy Co-Founder Dan Pickett. Pickett will walk you through the foundations of HTML and CSS, a small portion of the Launch Academy curriculum that focuses on front end development.
This course is recommended for anyone who wants to see if coding is something they could fall in love with—and the capstone project is coding a full web page. (You can do it!)
