What Is LaunchPad ?

Everything you need to know

LaunchPad by Vog is a program that has been developed by Vog App Developers to train new hires and junior developers to advance their skills and understanding of software development. Through this approach, a developer learns the necessary skills and knowledge to be an intricate part of a development team. Vog App Developers, along with other companies in the industry, recognize that the skills students are learning within post-secondary institutions and bootcamps aren’t enough and aren’t providing those who are investing in a software development career with the know-how that the industry is actually looking for in a new hire.

When students finish school they are supposed to be work-ready, right? Sadly, that’s increasingly not the case. Employers demand a diverse range and depth of technical and non-technical skills which regular education won’t necessarily cover. This is where the LaunchPad program comes to the fore with our passion for on-the-job skills-based training.

Practical work is a necessary part of the learning experience for those who are pursuing a career in technology and software development and it serves many purposes.

LaunchPad supports recent graduates, individuals looking to switch careers, professionals looking to advance their software knowledge for a better job, and businesses who want to provide training to their employees. By teaming up with schools, education and training sectors, the software development industry, and local businesses, LaunchPad develops industry-ready software developers.
