Lima Platoon

Lima Platoon Begins Their Coding Journey

On May 4, Code Platoon welcomed Lima Platoon – its 12th Full-time cohort. Seventeen students are part of the cohort.

During the first week of class, Lima students tackled the fundamentals of Python and Javascript. They also covered pair-programming, unit testing, and a workshop on giving and receiving feedback. They also completed several coding challenges.

Due to the COVID-19 virus, Lima is starting off as an all-remote class. The first in Code Platoon history. Lead Instructor Tom Prete, a Marine Veteran and Instructor Noa Heinrich, an AmeriCorp graduate, are leading the group of Veterans, Military Spouses, and transitioning servicemen.

“We are looking forward to this cohort becoming part of the wonderful Code Platoon community,” said Noa. “I can’t wait to see just how far the students will go as they learn more about software development and find careers in the growing technology sector.”

Over the course of the 14-week, high-intensity Bootcamp, students will spend 60-80 hours per week in lectures, coding challenges, and career-development programs. Career-development and job placement are key components of the Code Platoon program.

Students will also develop and present a personal project and a group programming project prior to graduation in August.

Join us in welcoming Lima platoon and wishing them well on their coding journey!
