One reason why I chose to apply for Code Platoon is because it’s exclusively for veterans. I feel that being around people from a similar background, who are working towards the same goals, will prove more beneficial to the process.

The dedication required to complete this intensive program is absolutely worth it. I learned so much over the course of the program. The experience and confidence that comes from coding and building software every day is empowering.

In the 14 weeks of study, I acquired a greater depth of knowledge in Software Development than I could have attained in over a year of studying on my own. The quality of instruction and depth of understanding gained in each area is unparalleled.

I just completed Code Platoon with the Bravo cohort. It was a great opportunity and I could not have asked for more. Jon is a great teacher and all of the TAs were very helpful/knowledgeable. It is a great way to get your foot in the door of the tech world.

Code Platoon devotion to the veteran community is unprecedented. The lead instructor, Jon, is uniquely qualified to get veterans into the tech community. He cares about the students and is a real fan of the technologies he teaches.

Take all of that and add a generous tuition-assistance program coupled with companies willing to grant internship slots to new graduates, and you have a package that is unmatched by any other boot camp.

If you are a Veteran and are looking at Developer Bootcamps, Code Platoon is the best choice by far. I went from an under employed Veteran with no idea what I was going to do to a software engineer at an awesome company, in less than a year.

I was covered roughly 80% [$10,000 veteran’s scholarship] of the $13,000 tuition and Code Platoon offered the second [full] scholarship for women in tech. I loved how it was well-mixed with the programming knowledge and soft skills such as resume building and interview practice.
