- Great!- 3/28/2017Anonymous • Director of Technology & Engineering • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Software Engineering Program • Campus: Boston
After teaching programming skills to elementary students and taking one programming course myself I took the leap into Web Development full time. Launch was the best decision I ever made.
With the 8 weeks pre-learning and the 10 week on campus immersion, I feel that is the best curriculum to set one up for success. Launch has prepared me not only for a demanding job at a startup but for being in a totally new job field. Career Services at Launch is nothing but spectacular in preparing you to prep, network and interview.
- Fall 2016 (Boston)- 1/24/2017Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Software Engineering Program • Campus: Boston
LA was one of the best learning experiences I’ve ever been a part of having the chance to collaborate with passionate and driven people. Coming straight out of college with no professional job experience, I wanted to make the transition into programming as soon as possible. Like other bootcamps, LA isn’t for you if you are not willing to put in the work.
Searching for job can always be daunting, but you won’t be alone. Though the job search was stressful and difficult for me, LA’s career support helped me overcome my fear of not finding a job. Even after graduation, they continuously pushed me towards the perfect position and encouraged me to keep strengthening my portfolio and networking within Boston’s emerging tech community. LA is always rooting for your success!
Know that LA’s onsite curriculum will be fast-paced and challenging, and the job search afterwards will be tougher for some more than others; however, LA’s career services will be by your side. Use the resources available to you at Launch, whether it’s their career services, the experience engineers, or even your fellow Launchers. Just keep asking questions and address any concerns you may have and don’t be afraid to ask for help, and continue to code!
Overall, if you’re willing to put in the effort and sacrifice, LA is the place you want to go to make that big step towards your career change.
- Great Starting Point for a Career in Programming- 12/16/2016Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Software Engineering Program • Campus: Boston
I am a former Launcher who decided to attend the bootcamp with minimal experience in coding. Overall I would say I had a great experience at Launch Academy. My goal was to expedite the process of learning to code and transition into a new career, and Launch helped me do both of those things. The curriculum covers a lot of information and the group and individual projects gives students the chance to test out their new skills.
This is not a bootcamp for people who aren't self-motivated or expect Launch to just hand them a job after graduating (although I think the same thing is true of any bootcamp). You get out of it what you put into it. But if you're willing to work hard for the few short months you're in the program the instructors and career services will do everything they can to support you.
I definitely think I made the right choice by attending Launch Academy and would certainly recommend it to anyone I know thinking of attending a bootcamp.
- Stay Away- 11/26/2016Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Software Engineering Program • Campus: Boston
Place is the absolute worst. After you are out of the program they never help you get a job. They lie about their numbers and barely teach. I should have gone to another bootcamp
Response From: Evan Charles of Launch AcademyTitle: Co-Founder; COOFriday, Dec 16 2016Hi-
I am disheartened to hear you are not happy with your experience at Launch.
I want to resolve this with you and get you to a place of excitement with your decision to attend.
Can you email me directly at evan[dot]charles[at]launchacademy[dot]com so that we can set up a time to talk either via phone or video chat? I am confident I can make things right for you.
If you are not willing to talk, can you confirm that you had access to our Department of Professional Licensure reviewed student outcomes when you received your acceptance letter and within your Student Agreement. For reference, the outcomes are located here: https://www.launchacademy.com/blog/student-statistics
Also, in your initial review you mentioned not receiving Career Services in post grad support. Can you confirm your cohort and whether you had access to our structured grading in Horizon in your Post Grad Support (something added in Cohorts 13 & 14). If not, we can ensure you are re-entered into post grad support as it never discontinues for alumni. Also, have you received the most recent REACT curriculum available to all alumni?
I am looking forward to working to resolve this with you. Our aim is to provide an exceptional experience to all students at Launch.
