How Code Platoon Works
The Chicago-based program is exclusively for veterans. The accelerated curriculum is designed to teach the fundamentals of the Ruby full-stack over 20 weeks (6 weeks remote, 14 weeks in-person). After the course work is complete, veterans are eligible for paid internships.
Code boot camps are full-time immersive programs that teach software development skills to beginners with little or no technical background. Course work combines instructional time along with hands-on programming experience. Professional development is supplemented with job counseling, help with interview preparation, and employer matching.
