General Questions

LaunchPad by Vog is a program that has been developed by Vog App Developers aiming to advance the skills of junior software developers to be intermediate level and industry-ready software developers. LaunchPad is unique in its approach teaching you how to develop software using real-world and project inspired challenges. Hands-on experiences will prepare you to easily handle the expectations that the industry is currently looking for. In addition, we will connect you with software and tech companies that are ready to hire new talents with your newly acquired software development skills.

LaunchPad offers real-world practices and experiences while teaching key software fundamentals. Other software programs may tend to focus on teaching basic or even intermediate understanding of code. Vog App Developers saw the need for something more, something to propel an aspiring software developer’s career and help establish the necessary capabilities that the software industry is looking for; LaunchPad will bridge that gap teaching not only software fundamentals but also business logic, critical thinking, collaboration and problem-solving skills which are essential to be a strong, well-rounded developer.

For Trainees

The only difference between in-person courses and virtual courses is that when opting to join the virtual courses, Recruits will communicate with colleagues and instructors mostly through video conference. Virtual Recruits will attend virtual courses and be provided with instructions and a support person just as if they were in the office.

At least one year of programming experience would be best. This includes any boot camps or post-secondary learning. LaunchPad takes junior developers and advances them to an intermediate level; for this reason, we do require basic knowledge of software development.
All applicants will be asked a series of questions through our phone interview to determine if they have enough experience to enter the program. The goal of LaunchPad is to provide an enhanced and accelerated learning environment to grow a junior developer or developer’s skillset using modern frameworks and languages that companies are actually demanding right now.

At the end of each week, you will be able to review the week’s discussions and challenges and will have the opportunity to follow up with any questions that you may have. Our mentors will be with you during the whole program to guide you and support you throughout your program.
