Students will need access to a laptop to participate in the course. While LaunchCode does not provide laptops to people who are in the process of applying, we can explore resources with our enrolled learners if they are unable to replace a laptop that stops functioning during class. (For affordable laptop and wifi access, we recommend looking into PCS FOR PEOPLE, CONNECT ALL, and the AFFORDABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM). Chromebooks and tablets will not be sufficient for use in this course. If you own a PC, you must have Windows 10 or a more recent operating system. It should have at least 4 GB RAM, though 8 GB is strongly recommended. If you own a Mac, it should run the latest operating system. Please apply all system upgrades before coming to class.
Although this course is free, it is challenging and requires commitment. Outside of class, you are expected to spend 15-20 hours doing readings, watching videos, working on practice problems, and completing assignments. No previous coding experience is required for this class.
