Our Story


  • Who We Are

    The Beginning

    Established in 2014, #VetsWhoCode is a proactive non-profit bridging the gap in technical expertise. Inspired by "To Teach a Man To Fish," we prepare transitioning veterans and military spouses for the workforce. We acknowledge their unique challenges as a "vulnerable population" due to outdated support systems. We proactively focus on empowering our troops and their families for success.

    Our Motivation

    Our Motivation drives us at #VetsWhoCode, where our commitment is deeply rooted in addressing the challenges faced by transitioning veterans and military spouses. We don't just transform lives; we empower them towards rewarding careers in technology. By equipping our veterans with cutting-edge software skills, we're not only enhancing their prospects but also contributing to the economy and fostering innovation. Our passion for creating sustainable solutions extends beyond the scope of traditional programs, ensuring our students are fully equipped for success in the tech industry.

  • What We Do

    The Work

    Our approach at #VetsWhoCode is distinctively personal and effective. Founded by veterans who have personally navigated the challenging terrain of transitioning from military to civilian life, we offer a streamlined and highly selective software development training program. This program is uniquely designed to usher military veterans and their spouses into rewarding opportunities within the tech sector. Inspired by our own experiences, such as Jerome Hardaway's transformative journey through technology, we prioritize quality over quantity and tangible results over lofty ideals. It's not just about teaching coding; it's about changing lives with every line of code.
