Why PDX Code Guild?

Moving beyond the syntax of individual languages, learning universal programmer practices and how to THINK like a programmer is most of the battle and the basis of what it takes to be versatile and successful in the tech industry. It’s also a skill set that most bootcamps miss in their curriculum. At PDX Code Guild, we go deeper to give you the skills you need to go where opportunity and desire take you. We arm you with the highest quality education and the top in-demand skills needed in the workforce right now. We give you small class sizes, highly qualified teachers, in-person 1-on-1 attention, after-hours workspace and assistance, job placement suport and alumni resources.

Our courses start with Python because it has an approachable syntax for an object-oriented language. It’s not as “cluttered” as other languages like Java, C#, or C++. This helps demystify programming for people who are getting their feet wet. Python is very flexible and is used widely from system administration to research to gaming engines to functional programming.

Our students learn fundamentals in Python which we then expand upon with JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS3 into full stack development with one of Python’s most popular and widely used frameworks: Django.
