Deciding upon the right career path or your next financial move may be one of the most difficult parts of your transition. Due to the growing demand of coding skills and job opportunities available in the technology field, a viable and successful path for many veterans has been to choose an immersive coding bootcamp to become a software developer. Our 12-week coding bootcamps allow veterans to quickly learn today’s most relevant coding skills, and for several veterans, their GI Bill benefits cover the cost of the education and more.
When you enlisted in the military, you were thrown into basic training. You entered an intense style of training like you never experienced before. It was difficult, but it was the perfect training regime to help you become a successful soldier. In much the same way, our coding bootcamps prepare you to become a successful coder. It’s all about laying the foundation and building your skills in an intense immersive, yet extremely rewarding, experience.
In military bootcamp, one of the biggest lessons learned is the importance of teamwork. Because veterans enter coding bootcamp already knowing and experiencing this, they are actually ahead of the game. Not only do veterans see the value in teamwork, but they also understand how to lead teams. Large sections of our coding courses involve working within a team of developers to solve problems.
In your military training, you were taught to be an efficient self-starter. It takes a certain kind of mental toughness and grit to become a soldier – and the same goes for students who attend our coding bootcamps. Self-starters understand that to advance, grow, and be better, they have to take action and take their training into their own hands. Veterans understand this idea and that’s why they make such great coders.
