- Lightning Talk - To teach is to learn. You'll spend 5 minutes teaching us about something for which you are passionate about. We'll be assessing your ability to explain a subject clearly, succinctly, and in common language. Share your enthusiasm and teach us about something that motivates you!
- Logic Exercise - You’ll work through multiple logic questions. You will be required to show us how you think by talking through a problem out loud - a process in software development known as 'rubber ducking'. We' want to know how you work when faced with a challenge. We're seeking folks with a growth mindset that don't let the struggle of learning frustrate them to the point of giving up. Do you learn well with others? Learning to code is a collaborative process at Launch Academy, now is your chance to show us your a collaborative learner.
