Vets Who Code: Training Troops for Careers in Tech

2016-05-18-1463556428-2506134-VetsWhoCode.jpg

Imagine serving your country in the United States Air Force. The incredible investment of protecting our nation is far beyond what most could invest in a lifetime, so it would be fitting that once veterans are discharged from duty, their transition to civilian life be marked by zero complications. Unfortunately, almost 31 percent of veterans suffer from moderate to serious cases of PTSD, and are ill equipped to cope with the unique challenges of civilian life. An innovative non-profit has taken matters into its own hands, and aims to effectively rehabilitate veterans into society by teaching them integral software development training skills to transition them into jobs in the tech sector. Considering that roles such as a Ruby on Rails developer top the highest pay in the nation for programmers, there is a high ROI for veterans, who invest time into this program.

Vets Who Code is a streamlined, highly selective software development training program with the mission of transitioning military veterans into the vacancies of the technology sector. The unique differentiating angle of Vets Who Code is its ability to identify veterans who are keen to learn, and teach them in demand software programming skills free of charge to up marketability for high-paying software development jobs. Here are the top 3 reasons to fully support Vets Who Code!

All training is 100% online so selected veterans can literally learn anywhere!
