Anant Agarwal, CEO of EdX, the online learning platform founded by Harvard and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, refers to what LaunchCode is doing here as the “St. Louis experiment.” And he said results of the pilot have far exceeded his expectations. That’s why Agarwal is ready to assist LaunchCode in its efforts to expand outside of St. Louis. LaunchCode is the paired-programming initiative founded by Jim McKelvey that is placing up-and-coming computer programmers with 100 of St. Louis’ most notable corporations. McKelvey said the company is eying a national expansion into places including Miami, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Denver and a location somewhere on the West Coast.
