Chicago-based Code Platoon, a nonprofit startup, puts military veterans through an immersive coding boot camp to prepare them to become software developers. The 14-week course includes a scholarship that covers most of the cost, mentors who have transitioned from the military to the tech community and partnerships with veteran services organizations.
