Open Book Shelf

Below are some books we wrote to supplement the courses at Launch School. Some of the books take a very beginner friendly approach, and are suitable for any level of technical proficiency. Some books may require prerequisite knowledge covered in a Launch School course, and may not be suitable for individual consumption. Please feel free to send us feedback or corrections about any of the books at books@launchschool.com. We'd love to hear if you enjoyed it or if there are areas where it could be improved.
