WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

The most successful businesses have found that the key to long-term success revolves around effective financial management. Through case studies and a down-to-earth style, experience this remarkably powerful program:

  • Understand why and how to benchmark your company performance.
  • Establish the difference between “making a profit” and “having cash” volume and costs.
  • Learn how to correctly compute your break-even, and the effects of price, and how to do more of both.

We focus on the most cutting-edge languages and technologies such as React.js and Node.js, meanwhile also focusing on languages and frameworks popular with Montana employers, such as PHP and ASP.NET -- all this to help ensure you're job ready.

During your class, you will also work one-on-one with a career coach to practice talking about your resume and code portfolio (your examples of completed web development work) with a prospective employer. Whether it's with our network of Montana employers or our exclusive network of global employers, Big Sky Code Academy does more than simply teach you to code. We help you get ready to build the career, future, and life you want for yourself.
