PDX Code Guild’s mission is to empower students with the tools necessary to break into the coding industry.
Our students come from all walks of life but have one thing in common: their single-minded focus to
transition to software development. We cultivate an environment which allows this to happen through our
fast-paced, intensive training regime but also maintain a flexibility which allows students to strive
towards individual goals.
Top Quality Tech Education
Technology is on an exponential scale of development that pushes the boundaries of what is known every
day. Coding is no exception to this evolution and, here at PDX Code Guild, we keep up with the pace by
teaching the most up-to-date versions and updates of any program or language.
Our instructors are proven programmers whose expertise falls within, and extends beyond, the scope of
the curriculum. This allows our students tremendous flexibility when selecting capstone projects for
themselves because they will receive support they need at any level of their development.
We ensure this level of support by maintaining a small class size (average is 12 people) and regular
check-ins with all of our students to ensure they are understanding the material.
Community Centered Culture
Real world developers rarely work on a project alone. Here, we cultivate collaboration through group
projects and code reviews. We also host coding meetups after work hours which is open to the general
public to encourage networking: a necessary step in securing work for any field. Furthermore, we
maintain an open door policy for all students and alumni where any individual can seek the support they
need for tech challenges, projects and career guidance.
Focused On The Individual
Our students are individuals, not numbers on a page. We understand that each student has their own
unique needs and talents. Maintaining smaller class sizes is essential to our mission to empower
students to building a successful career in coding.
We know that students will work harder on projects they are passionate about, so we ensure that capstone
projects are tailored to students’ personal interests. This results in a strong, unique portfolio for
each graduate which aids them break through the noise of other junior developers when applying for
