Code Platoon is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit working to transform veterans and military spouses into professional software developers through an immersive, educational bootcamp, mentorship, and internship program. In the 14-week program, we employ hands-on, in-person training with each group of students to teach software design principles, modern software languages, and best practices. We optimize our students’ success by matching them with an industry mentor, who serves as a support system and connects them with a professional network of software developers. Training with Code Platoon frequently culminates in a paid internship with one of our corporate sponsors, and most of our graduates are hired into permanent roles within six months of graduation. Highly sought after by employers, our graduates report a median salary of $68,000 within six months of graduation and $100,000 within two years of graduation.
