Montana Code School Demo Day: Missoula

Thursday, August 9th, 5-7pm

Looking for an employee with coding skills? Interested in becoming a Montana Code School student?

Join us for Montana Code School’s Demo Day to meet our talented students who will be available for hire starting in August 2018.

Our students have spent the last few weeks in teams developing an app from scratch. Their projects are built using Mongo, Express, React and Node.js. In addition to our standard full-stack development, we've been exploring TDD in Python, Javascript, and Ruby.

Our students are ideal candidates for tech companies looking for software developers and interns. Montana Code School alumni have joined Submittable, Partners Creative, ATG, Cedar Mountain Software, Workiva, and others.

Project descriptions:

For the classes final projects, they decided to go out on a limb and try some new technologies. Vue.js and Postgresql make up the backbone of these two web projects.

To add to that we had the opportunity to publish a library to npm and build a small hangman game also in Vue.

Last but not least our hardware skills needed some sharpening, and our little robot pal Sally needed some building. With a little help from BOE-Bot and an Arduino board or two, we might have a friend to bring to demo days!

Montana Code School exists to launch students’ careers in software development and to contribute to our growing tech community. 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!
