Looking for an employee with coding skills? Interested in becoming a Montana Code School student?

Join us for Montana Code School's Demo Day to meet our talented students who will be available for hire starting in August 2017.

For this project, the students decided to operate as much like a modern software development team as possible, which includes agile sprint planning, project management, and test driven development. They created a suite of apps with Android and web implementations of a central project.

Our students are ideal candidates for tech companies looking for software developers and interns. Montana Code School alumni have joined Submittable, Partners Creative, ATG, Cedar Mountain Software, Workiva, and others.

Free Food Provided!

Project Description:

Assassins: We created a game based off a high school game called Assassins. Everyone playing has a target who is someone else in the game. Once you have successfully "assassinated" them (i.e. stabbed with a plastic spoon, "poisoned" then with hot sauce etc.), they then tell you their current target. This continues until only 2 are left hunting each other.

Some technical complexities we are dealing with include: SQL database, redux, login authentication, geolocation, using a device's accelerometer and magnetron, timestamps, push notifications, continued running in the background, and react-native.

Montana Code School exists to launch student's 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!
