Operations

Prior to our tax-exemption we were limited to 10,000 Slack messages. This is no longer a problem which has led to unbelievable growth internally, more mentorship channels, and better coordination.

Partnerships

ACP helps veterans achieve career goals through a free national mentorship program with a corporate professional in a career field of the veterans interest. ACP Mentors come from one of 60+ companies like 21st Century Fox, Deloitte, GE, Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, and USAA. As new veterans join ACP and interested in technology, they’ll be introduced to Operation Code and our Software Mentor Protégé Program.

PBC’s mission is to equip veterans and spouses to build technology companies of impact and scale, by building competency through education, community integration, mentorship and resources. In a symbiotic and complementary way, Operation Code serves the very same population by enabling veterans to learn to code, and empowering them to build software to change the world. Currently, veterans who are interested in attending the next PBC cohort can join the #patriotbootcamp channel in our Slack and ask questions from alumni, prepare to attend, and introduce their projects.

Programs & Services

Software Mentor Protégé Program

Earlier this year, Rick Rein, a Marine veteran, Ruby/Rails/Elixir developer joined our team as our newest Director, Software Mentor Protégé Program — ensuring both continuity and mentorship growth. He immediately began taking on issues in GitHub. Rick also led the way by livecoding on Operation Code.

Code School Scholarships & Scholarship Committee

New GI Bill and Code Schools

This fall we’re accelerating code school technical assistance by adding additional personnel to augment our current Code School Outreach Specialist-Western Region, George Everts, with a new Director, Code Schools, Ian Lenny, that will provide leadership and expand eastern region code school outreach as well.

Military Veterans Technical Talent Pipeline

Our objective is to make hiring and onboarding military veteran software developers a simple, efficient, and painless process.
