Community Life and Events
We want anyone and everyone to take a course through the MTCS. Whether you are a seasoned computer scientist, looking to learn another language, a content marketer looking to gain an edge, an english major who wants to learn some web design skills on the side or even a mother or father who wants to learn a new skill and make some money in their free time. The Montana Code School provides ample room for every type of learner and also provides career support for during and after your time at the school.
Community and Alumni Events
When you come to the code school, you become a part of our tribe. Our alumni work at tech companies throughout Montana. We host several events throughout the year for our current and prospective students and alumni. A part of our tribe is involvement in the Montana coding community! You will be shown access to various coding meet-ups and people who live and breathe code under the big sky. Completing a course and becoming a part of the Montana Code School tribe can help launch your career and get you exposure to great people and great experiences.
Montana Code School gives its graduates more than an education. Completing either our full-time immersive course or the part-time course gives our students confidence get started in the tech industry. We help our students develop their own online personalities. They workshop resumés together to compose the best and most fitting, engage in mock interviews and have business leaders pose real problems to our classes. Working with the University of Montana, we also provide a career advisor, who helps our students plan for after graduation. Joining the Montana Code School is an opportunity to strengthen current skills or learn new ones.
Upskill yourself, become comfortable with code, learn the tech language, get promoted, get the job.
Students work in teams of three to four people to develop a web/mobile application from scratch integrating the technologies they have learned in the previous weeks as well as new technologies. Students have 3 weeks to work on their projects before showcasing their apps to the public. Demo day is an open house where the public can check out the students’ apps and ask them questions. By the end of the class, students will have 2 applications for their portfolio.
We host workshops on various topics in software development, such as mob programming or an intro to web development. Please check our facebook page for upcoming events. If you already know some skills with coding or want to get a taste before committing signing up for a weekend workshop can help you determine if the Montana Code School is for you!
