A Curriculum from First Principles
Our program is about slowly building up mastery of fundamentals, so you understand how higher level abstractions truly work from the inside out. Our goal isn't to teach you how to use React or Rails, but to show you how to construct accurate mental representations of first principles in order to tackle fundamental engineering problems. Our goal isn't to help you find a job, but help you launch a career. Our goal isn't to teach you to code, but to teach you how to deconstruct and problem solve like an engineer.
This requires a long, deliberate, and sometimes circular path. Don't rush, take it slow, follow the path and you'll be transformed. This is the slow path to mastery and a rewarding career.
Our program is results oriented, which means we care about what happens after you finish. It's not credentials based; you don't get a diploma or a certificate or degree. Our sole focus is on making sure that you get the requisite knowledge and skills that can last a multi-decade career. The combination of a rigorous fundamentals-led program with career-oriented results puts Launch School in a class of our own.
