Military veterans have the right set of skills to become programmers. Technical expertise, emotional resilience, psychological persistence, and teamwork–these are the qualities of the US army and they are the qualities of the best programmers. More and more veterans who leave the army are becoming coders, and the mission of Operation Code is to help veterans make that transition.
