In honor of Veterans Day, we have complimentary one-week guest passes available for veterans good for the week of November 11 – 17. To register for one of these guest passes, please contact member services at brad.johnson@ffc.com.

In addition to our complimentary guest week for veterans, we will have Code Platoon ‘womaning’ a table in our lobby throughout the week. Stop by and learn more about this great organization. Code Platoon is a 501(c)3 non-profit that helps veterans and military spouses transition into the civilian workforce by providing technical training and career placement.

For 14 weeks the students are immersed in learning the full web development stack, including Python (or Ruby), Django (or Rails), JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. No previous programming skills are required. After completing the program the veteran or military spouse will be hireable as a junior full-stack web developer and eligible for an internship.
