Great Hearts Initiatives | Code Platoon

Mission

Code Platoon is a Chicago-based non-profit program exclusively for veterans. We’ll teach you full-stack development over the course of 20-weeks (6 weeks remotely, 14 weeks in our 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.

There is no better way to prepare for a career as a software developer than having real-world experience. Veterans returning from combat don’t always have the years of job experience their non-veteran counterparts do. Internships last 3 to 6 months and help ensure a smooth transition into the profession.

You’ll be challenged and rigorously trained in our immersive program. 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.

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.
