PDX Code Community

On the weekend of October 16, 2015, Portland Code School was abruptly shut down by its Los Angeles owner. Students and instructors were given no advance notice. The locks on the doors of the school were changed to prevent anyone from entering, and no provision was made for the completion of classes that were in session.

Now, with the students left on their own, they need places to meet and study, mentors to help guide their final projects, a place to showcase their final projects, and advisors to help them in the job search process.
