“That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong

Your mission

Technical documentation is boring. At best, it’s good for a nap. More often than not, it’s sent immediately to the recycle bin. I’ll just Google for answers, thank you.

We wanted to improve on that. We want to make learning fun, as well as relevant. Launchpad's sci-fi themed SpaceWalk.Tours sample app and characters are all part of a larger story that will help keep your attention.

Whether you’re a developer, an administrator, or just interested in getting hands-on with Akamai technology, Launchpad will get you started quickly.

Signing up for Akamai Launchpad was that first small step that becomes a giant leap for your skills, knowledge, and career. So strap in and get ready to ignite the main engines, you’re about to accelerate your learning into hyperdrive!

After this mission, you’ll be able to:

  • Define who Launchpad is for, and when to use it
  • Navigate the sample app
  • Prepare for missions and quests (mini hacks)
  • Earn points, badges, and levels
