Three years ago, we changed our motto from Serious Beginners to Studious Beginners to better reflect the type of students learning with us at Launch School.
Today, we’re making one more tweak: changing Beginners to Learners. Similar to the change made three years ago, this is not a reflection of changing priorities. It’s a result of better understanding our students.
It turns out that beginners aren’t the only ones coming to learn with us at Launch School. While we do have many students who have never programmed before, we also have a significant percent of students who have been programming for a while. Our community attracts CS majors, working developers, career switchers, and even high schoolers.
The common denominator among all our students is that they are studious learners, first and foremost regardless of previous experience.
Writing a blog article about this seemingly trivial change may seem unnecessary, but I think this gets to the heart of what makes Launch School so unique and why we lead the industry in quality.
Studious Learners + Mastery Based Learning == Launch School.
