Kroger’s team is working with a company called Pivotal Labs, which provides people and space to teach Airmen how to code like the workers in Silicon Valley, but for the Department of Defense. Open workspaces found in Cambridge contrast with traditional government workspaces on base with closed cubicles and offices. Their mission is to learn from today’s best tech experts, while delivering custom-built software to warfighters. They are already saving the Air Force fuel, and they have reduced the time it takes AOC warfighters to develop targets by 85 percent, making combat operations more precise and lethal.
