You’ll be challenged and rigorously trained in our immersive full stack coding bootcamp. Taught by professional developers, you’ll spend 6 to 7 days a week and 12 to 14 hours a day in lectures, coding time, and self-study. When you have finished our curriculum, you will have learned enough to launch a career in software development. We focus on holistic training, and part of our curriculum covers soft skills and personal development. Our curriculum covers everything you will need to know to be a full-stack developer. From programming languages to industry best practices, you will get hands-on experience working with today’s web development tools.
ATTEND IN PERSON
We’ll teach you full-stack development over the course of 14 weeks in our downtown Chicago classroom, and train you to be eligible for paid internships and full-time employment as a web developer. No previous programming experience is necessary. To attend, you must be a veteran or military spouse and pass our rigorous admissions process. Once you are admitted, you will be eligible to apply for generous scholarships.
Cannot attend in-person and don’t want to forfeit the benefits of the live experience? With our remote program, you participate in real-time classroom discussions, assignments and team projects with direct feedback from professors, albeit remotely. Admission to this program is backed a full scholarship and is more rigorous than to our in-person program. Attendees are not eligible to participate in the Chicago-based internship program.
Preparing to get a job is a skill in itself. What’s the best way to build a resume and LinkedIn profile? How do coders prepare for technical interviews, behavioral interviews, and whiteboarding? How does a graduate conduct a job search? We cover it all.
AN INSTANT NETWORK FOR YOU
We recognize that one of the biggest hurdles of starting a new career is developing a network in the industry. We solve that for you. Every student gets an industry mentor, and every night, professional software developers volunteer as teaching assistants. With Code Platoon, you will have direct contact with 8 to 10 professional developers every week.
“Enova is extremely proud to be one of the inaugural companies to support the launch of Code Platoon. It’s mission — to help returning veterans — is a cause that hews closely to our company’s values. Working with the veterans in the first cohort as mentors, instructors, and hosts of the first ever “robot wars” hackathon was incredibly rewarding for our team. And on graduation we were pleased to extend offers to graduates with one of them now a full-time member of Enova’s Technology team. Code Platoon is a great organization doing vital work in Chicago.”
John Higginson, Chief Technology Officer, Enova International
NETWORKING AND COMMUNITY
As a Code Platoon graduate, you’ll be part of our community. You’ll be able to forge professional relationships with our network of veterans, military spouses and developers, and grow your career potential. A common misconception is that you need a specific background or education to be a software developer. Our students come from many different paygrades, MOSs, and branches.
