Apprentice/Contractor (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOAugust 6, 2018
LaunchCode is a fantastic organization. They provide classes and training in a variety of programming languages in order to get students up to the point of being Apprentices/Contractors. Once you've completed the main program, they provide job placement assistance and continued education and support.

The people that I've worked with and learned with at LaunchCode are some of the best people that I've had an opportunity to work with and I still see some of them - despite working at different locations, now - on a regular basis and I have recommended it to ALL my friends and family that have showed an interest in the tech field.

LaunchCode is an open, inviting, diverse organization that strives to make tech a welcoming field for all people from all walks of life. I have never been more proud to associate myself with a professional organization as I am with LaunchCode.
Pros
Professional, Helpful, Friendly, Supportive, Diverse, Collaborative
Cons
Some times, you gotta have a long commute

Was a student in their program not an employee
Student Software Developer (Current Employee) –  Miami, FLSeptember 7, 2017
I'm a student in their Code Camp not an actual employee in their company but I love this company in general. It's a full stack class with a bigger focus on backend development specifically.

Good if you like to help people
Teaching Fellow (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MOJune 8, 2017
A lot of the people you will be teaching will be brand new to coding so if you are patient then this will be a fun job. There is a bit of studying that may be needed to do outside of the actual class time to make sure you stay ahead of the students
