We prepare students for rapid placement in business as well as for entrepreneurship. We teach our students how to learn software programming so they can thrive in various tech environments. Our students are creative, agile and logical thinkers that also learn empathy, collaboration and strong communication skills. Our Teaching Philosophy We believe that the best way to learn includes teaching, and we experiment with ways to encourage students to teach and support each other. We use the best tools and philosophies we know of for generating great software, building great teams, offering great experiences to those who use our software, and producing real business value from our work. This includes ideas from the Agile Manifesto and the Agile software community, Lean Manufacturing, Accelerated Learning, Positive Psychology, the newest Brain Science, and more. We rely on quick feedback loops. We have a plan, but we adapt based on what works. Play is perhaps the best learning tool of them all. Fun, Joy, and Happiness are not optional!

What we're about

Public Group

Montana Programmers is a rapidly growing community of programmers.

Our goal is to build a fun and rewarding network of coders from all walks of life, languages, backgrounds, industries, and skill levels. We strive to provide a place where both an expert and a novice can learn cool new things. Share and grow in the art of programming.

We have groups in Kalispell (59901), Polson (59860), Missoula (59801), Bozeman (59715), Helena (59620), Great Falls (59401) and Billings (59102).

Every month we try to schedule at least one meetup in each town. We also hold mini meets or drinkups, which are generally pretty informal.

The group is open to everyone. Just pick an event on the calendar and RSVP.

See you at the next meetup!
