Like our days in the military, time on target is key. Hack and pair program with a software mentor at no-cost. You’ve already served and it’s our way of saying thank you.
We use Slack, a real-time communication app to post questions and answers, and share snippets of code. When that doesn’t work, we can jump on a Screenhero and pair program even faster sharing screens.
Our software mentors work the full spectrum from tech startups to defense federal contractors with one thing in common: ensuring our military veterans learn the new 21st century literacy skill.
Our active community of military and veterans open source software & hardware enthusiasts help you gain real-world app experience, share job opportunities, conference scholarships, and opportunities to build on your military experience.
