Students learn the basics of SQL, advanced queries, stored procedures, and reporting services. SQL (Structured Query Language) is great for someone who is interested in working with databases, including non-programmers looking to improve their business intelligence skills or programmers looking to build and manipulate databases for their applications. Learners create their own custom database over the course of the class, using SQL, SSRS and SSMS to construct a tool with dashboards and a clear design.

LaunchCode provides free, industry-relevant curriculum to put you on the path to landing a job in technology. This community engages women and is also intentionally inclusive of those who are trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming in a supportive classroom environment with live mentoring from instructors and teaching fellows, and support from a student success coach.
Originally created as a meetup by women to lift up other women in tech called CoderGirl, this program has grown into a full-fledged education job prep program, but our mission remains the same: to open doors to tech careers for people of marginalized genders!
There are no grades in the class, but students must complete all of the required assignments successfully in order to continue through and graduate from the course. Deadlines will be made clear at the beginning of and during the class.
Yes, though it is less likely. The reason we give the Problem Solving Assessment significance is important is because it shows us how applicants approach new puzzles that require logical thinking, which can directly relate to a student’s ability to master the material presented in the class.
Unfortunately, we are unable to allow applicants to retake the assessment unless they can demonstrate that they experienced technical difficulties that prohibited them from completing it.
Over the 24 - 45 weeks of class, students should expect to commit at least 15 hours per week for class and homework.
You can always view your current status by logging into your LaunchCode account, and viewing “Classes”. There, you will be able to access the assessment as long as you have correctly submitted the application.
No. Unfortunately, we finalize all of our course enrollment before the pre-work due date, so you are not able to submit your pre-work late. We give students at least 2 weeks to complete the pre-work to allow time to work around any other time commitments. We highly encourage you to submit the pre-work a few days before the due date to ensure that no technical difficulties or personal events get in the way.
Yes, it is okay to miss a class as long as you keep up with the lessons and homework detailed in the schedule. Remember, you will need to make up any class time you miss on your own time, and you won’t have the benefit of having your classmates and mentors there to answer your questions in person. Once you fall behind in class, the fast pace of the curriculum means it quickly becomes very difficult to catch up again. This is not an online course -- it is expected that students only miss class on an as-needed basis.
We always welcome and encourage people to reapply to the class. If you’d like to receive an email as soon as applications open please sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of the webpage and follow us on social media.
Each class has a decision date, by which you will receive notification of your application status. Please do not inquire about your application status unless you have not heard back after the end of that date.
