A Designer Turned Web Developer
This program is by far the most advanced, cost effective way of learning how to be a real programmer and get paid like one
I would highly recommend Launch School to any individual who actually wants to be a professional programmer, and not a copy and paste coder.
I started in the graphic design field and was just astonished as to how much control a programmer has over the project. I was so intrigued I decided to become a programmer, by first doing all of the free courses out there which to the Launch School courses is night and day. I was one of those programmers who lived in stack overflow and not really understanding the magical parts of Rails or have a strong foundation in Ruby. This program is by far the most advanced, cost effective way of learning how to be a real programmer and get paid like one. The material is top-notch and the Teaching Assistants are there to help whenever you are stuck.
The most important thing to me while completing this program was to measure how hirable I was to a development shop. I can say with confidence, EVERYTHING you learn in Launch School you will use in your daily programming career. I was immediately hired after showing my portfolio.
I have tried all other online bootcamps out there and nothing compares to the depth that Launch School goes to. They make sure you know what in the world is going on since there is a lot of magic web frameworks do for you. They help you understand the answer you have in every given situation. I refer to Launch School everyone who wants to either go into programming and don't know where to start or are tired of free courses that only scratch the surface.
