Amita Greer wanted a career change, and she found the perfect opportunity at the Montana Code School in Missoula.
“Working at the Missoula Small Business Development Center (SBDC) I had worked with small businesses before,” she said. “I was familiar with the entrepreneurship environment. I loved working in that smaller startup scene and I thought, ‘What’s a good industry to get into?’ Obviously tech. Especially with coding, those skills are valuable, in demand and transferable.”
Greer is one of many Montanans who have joined the growing legion of students and workers learning the ropes of computer coding.
