Project Descriptions:

Dreamers Nathan Talley, Cassidy Tucker, Kerry Zahn, Keesha Cain, and Matt Sutton

Dreamers is a Dream Journal app built using Create-React-App and Mlab. Its’ main purpose is to have a user be able to sign in to the app and log their dreams. It's built to be user friendly, calming, and to help the user keep track of their nightly adventures.

Tago Nathan Talley, Cassidy Tucker, Kerry Zahn, Keesha Cain, and Matt Sutton

Tago was inspired by Missoula Art Museum to monitor activity within specific areas of an art gallery. Giving users the ability to analyze which art pieces are the most popular and allowing them to make educated decisions based on activity. The project uses a range of technologies including Node.js, OpenCV, JavaScript, Python and a Raspberry Pi.

---------------------------------------- Montana Code School exists to launch students’ careers in software development and to contribute to our growing tech community. We prepare students for rapid placement in business as well as for entrepreneurship. We teach our students how to learn software programming so they can thrive in various tech environments. Our students are creative, agile and logical thinkers that also learn empathy, collaboration and strong communication skills.

Our Teaching Philosophy We believe that the best way to learn includes teaching, and we experiment with ways to encourage students to teach and support each other. We use the best tools and philosophies we know of for generating great software, building great teams, offering great experiences to those who use our software, and producing real business value from our work. This includes ideas from the Agile Manifesto and the Agile software community, Lean Manufacturing, Accelerated Learning, Positive Psychology, the newest Brain Science, and more. We rely on quick feedback loops. We have a plan, but we adapt based on what works. Play is perhaps the best learning tool of them all.

Fun, Joy, and Happiness are not optional!
