How to Launch a Career in Software Development

Note: This article was originally published on the Launch School blog on 2015–12–21

In this webinar, we talk about what it means to be a “software developer”, what employers are looking for, and how to approach your learning path to transform into a professional developer. We’ll also go over the Launch School curriculum, our teaching philosophy, and compare our program with other learning approaches. Finally, we’ll end it with a Q&A.

This video is a bit over an hour, but covers a lot of ground. If you’ve been wondering if the Launch School program is for you, this video will help you decide.

Note: we did a follow up webinar after this one called A Glimpse Into the Launch School Curriculum that you may be interested in as well.
