Three Reasons Veterans Become Coders

Bootcamp Style of Learning Icon
Bootcamp Style of Learning

When you enlisted in the military, you were thrown into basic training. You entered an intense style of training like you never experienced before. It was difficult, but it was the perfect training regime to help you become a successful soldier. In much the same way, our coding bootcamps prepare you to become a successful coder. It’s all about laying the foundation and building your skills in an intense, immersive, yet extremely rewarding, experience.

Team Work icon
Using Teamwork Skills

In military bootcamp, one of the biggest lessons learned is the importance of teamwork. Because veterans enter coding bootcamp already knowing and experiencing this, they are actually ahead of the game. Not only do veterans see the value in teamwork, but they also understand how to lead teams. Large sections of our coding courses involve working within a team of developers to solve problems.

Being Self-Starter rocket icon.
Being a Self-Starter

In your military training, you were taught to be an efficient self-starter. It takes a certain kind of mental toughness and grit to become a soldier – and the same goes for students who attend our coding bootcamps. Self-starters understand that to advance, grow, and be better, they have to take action and take their training into their own hands. Veterans understand this idea and that’s why they make such great coders.


Military Bootcamp To Tech Bootcamp

Transitioning from active duty into civilian life is a major change for veterans. But embarking on a new career path is easier than you may think.

Eleven Fifty Academy has partnered with Hiring our Heroes to help military vets across the nation quickly transition into a career in coding or cybersecurity in just a few months.  

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes initiative launched in 2011 as a nationwide effort to connect veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities.

Eleven Fifty’s tech bootcamps are designed to enable veterans to quickly skill up into a career that is in high demand.
