There's a new code bootcamp starting in Chicago called Code Platoon

that exclusively teaches veterans to code, for a very low fee. Its first
cohort is in February next year and they're looking for veterans currently
in tech who have the time to mentor students (face-to-face 1x / week) or to
come in and just talk one day about what it's like transitioning from the
military to a programming job.

If you are a veteran and want to help, just directly email Code Platoon's
Rod Levy (rod at codeplatoon.org)

It's a Ruby program (one of the board members is the Dev Bootcamp
co-founder) but since many Dev Bootcamp alums are actually quite active in
the Python community, if anybody's company can sponsor the program they can
contact Rod directly or use the sponsorship form here:

or ask me for more information...
I'm super proud that ideas like this are coming out of Chicago. Yay us!
