    Retaliatory Expulsion

    I had little to no problem with the Guild despite the lead instructor consistently showing up 20 minutes late to class. All was fine and dandy, even though the week before we were going to start working on capstones most people were several labs behind schedule, I couldn't know if it was a reflection of the Guild, or the difficulty of the course. 

    Then comes the 2nd time I go to study hall, a week ago today. I am immediately asked if I needed help by the same instructor that faile...

    A good place to learn

    I signed up for their free Intro to Programming (Python) evening class and had a great experience with instructor Al B. & assistant Indu. It was a short Tues-Thurs course for 2 weeks (18 hours total) on the basics of Python and feel more confident about my journey for new career skills. The class style is instructor led on a projector, with group coding practice and 2 individual labs per session which are reviewed by the instructors. Classes are uploaded later to youtube for helpful re...

    After 16 years with a company I was laid off.  Although I had Computer Technical background and strong WAN Technologies background I was struggling to find any Job.  I also had recently made a Career change into software development, but I only had 4 years and never held the title of senior so I was unable to find work in that field either. So, I worked with WorkSource and using the Reboot program and I found PDX Code Guild.  Sheri Dover the Schools President was warm and inviting.  The in...

    Full Stack Development Bootcamp

    With no prior coding experience-- thanks to the instruction and guidance of the PDX Code Guild team, I'm currently in the middle of interviewing for Meta, Google, Amazon and other tech powerhouses of the world.  PDX Code Guild was the BEST professional decision I've made for my career.

    After making the leap of doing a career switch into software development, I enrolled into the Full Stack Development Bootcamp at PDX Code Guild.  They give you an opportunity to test the waters of t...

    Best programming school!

    THE BEST CODING BOOTCAMP ever! Great teachers that give you a hands on experience in the field. The 101 programming class prepares you for what you will learn and gets you excited to learn more. I wish I would have came directly here instead of going to a 4 year college. I was able to learn more and go really indepth with the material within a short-time frame.

    A fantastic experience

    I took the Intro to Python class at PDX Code Guild. In a really short time, I felt very familiarized with this coding language -- of course, you can't learn EVERYTHING in two weeks, but I felt the instructors set a very healthy foundation of how to navigate problem solving and troubleshooting on your own. My favorite part of the course was how supportive it feels right from the start, the instructors are open to questions and confusions at every juncture and are at the ready to offer hel...

    The pre-course was an outstanding introduction to the overall course! I highly recommend attending to get an overall understanding of what this exciting field is all about. The instructors are very knowledgable, down to earth, and willing to take the time to help students learn the topics. Please give it a try if you are considering to enter this field.

    Great Community, Quality Learning

    As with anything in life, what you put in is what you get out. Learning to be a programmer is no exception. I attended PDX Code Guild, worked hard, and now have a job that I love.

    Most of my classmates love code guild and still frequently go there for meetups. If you work hard and are honest with yourself on what you need to improve on you will flourish at code guild. I have seen many people do this: Those that are successful have used programming to augment their passions, inter...

    I had a great and challenging experience

    I just receently graduated from PDXCode Guild after taking the Intro to Python course in May and then the 12 week Full Stack Devops class. I want to say that it was the most rewarding thing that I have done in a long time and it was also the hardest thing I have ever done because coding is not a trivial task. That is why you go to this school. Everyone there that I met talked a lot about that. Everyone was also very supportive and positive. My instructor had years of coding experience and ...

    Important Note

    The instructor mentioned by so many of the positive reviews below, who was the new head instructor who crafted the "more structured curriculum" left PDXCodeGuild recently.

    She quit due to disagrements on what is owed to students. She felt that students deserved better and was burnt out on fighting management to achieve that.

    Some good things, some not so good things.

    I want to write as honest a review I can about my experience.  For anonymity, I will say that I finished the class in 2015.  

    Positives: 
    Class size is small. For me it was 8 people. During my time there, average class size hovered around 8-12 students. This makes interactive instruction possible, and really allows you to get to know your classmates well. 

    The school is licensed by the State of Oregon. This means that you may qualify for job retraining grants and o...

    It just depends

    To be fair I've been told that our class was the worst one is this program's history.  I loved my classmates but we had a horrible instructor who was fired with three weeks left in the course.  Our instruction was uneven at best and negligent at worst.  We had a curriculum that was often glossed over or ignored completely by our instructor.  Our instructor knew close to nothing about CSS, HTML, JavaScript or SQL but taught all topics.
