PDX Code Community: Student Portfolio Project Showcase

Forge Portland
Portland, OR 97205, us (map)

8th floor of the Tiffany Center: 1410 SW Morrison, in the Forge Portland Co-working space



Come see what all the fuss is about. These former students of Portland Code School (http://bit.ly/1MIKSSQl) have battled the odds and built some stunning working apps. See their projects, hear about their work, and talk to the students themselves. Doors open 6:00pm.

Fellow coders, recruiters, business, and any supporters are welcome. Please RSVP (http://bit.ly/1SptSQq) for anyone you are bringing so we have an accurate count. Light appetizers to be provided.

When the Portland Code School unexpectedly shut its doors over the October 16th weekend, midway through the fall term, displaced students and former instructors came together to continue learning on their own, complete their final software projects and display the results of their dedication at their showcase event. When Portland’s tech community heard the news, they responded with an outpouring of support, offering everything from domain hosting and student scholarships to catering. Wirestorm, a globally distributed software development company, which has provided the students with mentors and study space, will host the showcase on Monday, November 16th from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., at their Portland office at Forge Co-working space on the top floor of Tiffany Center, at 1410 SW Morrison Street.

The event will showcase ten student teams who will unveil their final projects, which include innovative web applications and iOS-based mobile apps. The project teams have used a variety of technologies to show off the skills they’ve learned, including jQuery, JavaScript, Node.js, Backbone.js, Meteor.js, PostRegSQL, Orchestrate, various APIs, and much more.

Students, instructors, mentors, industry recruiters and tech companies are invited to attend the product showcase and honor the tenacity of the students whose mantra has been, “When the going gets tough, the tough get coding.”

A HUGE thanks to Wirestorm Portland for the venue sponsorship!!
