The final step for Code Platoon students before they officially graduate from the Full-stack Software Engineering Bootcamp is the showcasing of their final group projects. This is where the students really get to shine and demonstrate all that they learned in fun, innovative, and creative ways by creating software applications as a team.
On Friday, September 3, 2021, 18 students graduated from Code Platoon’s 16th Full-time cohort, Oscar Platoon. Here are the three final projects from the recently graduated class.
First is “There Can Only Be One”, a fun new way to answer life’s toughest questions such as; ‘What should we watch on Netflix?” ‘What should we name the baby?’ and the classic ‘Where are we eating tonight?’
Check out “There Can Only Be One”, presented by Andrew Whitford a Veteran of the Air Force, Sarah Dellheim another Air Force Veteran, Marine Veteran Jeremiah Mauga, and Shawn Kiernan who served with the Navy for 20 years.
Next up was “The Trendy Investor” a platform designed for the savvy investor in all of us. With Trendy Investor, users can stay up to date on market trends, including crypto currencies, and make the best investment possible.
The final project in the line up really speaks to the nature of Veterans wanting to give back. Oscar Platoon graduates Jack Shuff and James White who are Veterans of the Army, Stephen Sun and Marc Stanley, both Veterans of the Air Force, and Navy Veteran Jonas Paulikas all wanted to create an application that would provide value for future Code Platoon students and instructors.
Their project,“Slacker” is a resource finding web app which allows users to find the reference material they need with a simple search rather than scrolling through pages of information. This app integrates with Slack and has the potential of making the breakneck pace of learning code more bearable.
