WE ARE A NON PROFIT COMMITTED TO SERVING THE VETERAN COMMUNITY

The demand for software developers is growing. Yet, job-seeking military veterans face many challenges translating their service into civilian work experience. Code Platoon’s solution is simple: transform veterans and their families into skilled software developers.

MILITARY SPOUSES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR SCHOLARSHIPS

The Code Platoon mission is to support US military veterans and service members, and this includes building up and supporting military families.  We are proud announce that we are accepting applications from and providing scholarships to military spouses, effective immediately.

NOW OFFERING PYTHON FOR 2019 SESSIONS

Python can be used for web development as well as artificial intelligence, data science, machine learning, scripting, automation, and cybersecurity.  This wider variety of applications allows our graduates to find the type of coding job that best suits them.

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.

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.

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.
