Programming Classes in Portland

Are you interested in learning how to code and becoming a successful programmer? Look no further than our Portland code academy! We offer engaging computer programming classes that allow you to develop strong programming fundamentals as you begin your career as a web or mobile developer.

Why Portland?

Epicodus is regarded as one of Portland’s top code schools due to its focus on helping its students learn to program through interactive lectures built on pair programming. Students are given opportunities to learn to code in languages such as HTML, CSS, PHP, and Javascript, among many others through part-time and full-time programming tracks. Our internship services help students participate in productive work experiences that help them on their way to becoming programmers.

Epicodus is located on 400 SW 6th Avenue in the heart of downtown Portland, giving students the opportunity to enjoy and explore the city while continuing their programming education.

What We Offer

FULL-TIME PROGRAMMING COURSE

Aside from the part-time Introduction to Programming course, Epicodus offers full-time courses in languages such as C#, PHP, Javascript, .NET, Ruby, Rails, and Drupal.

A schedule of the programming tracks, which will begin on Jan 2017, is given on the page below. 

In order to help students in their programming job and internship search, Epicodus also provides job and internship training as part of its programming courses.

Part-Time Programming Course

Epicodus currently offers a part-time Introduction to Programming course in Portland. This course covers the fundamentals of web design and web development. Students will learn to code in languages such as HTML, CSS, jQuery, and Bootstrap as part of this course as they establish, and subsequently build on their programming fundamentals. 

Info Sessions

We offer a monthly info session for prospective students to come by, meet with a member of the staff, see the facility, and ask questions. These Q&A sessions are held the first Tuesday of the month from 5:30pm to 6:30pm in our office at 1601 5th Ave, Suite 1100, Seattle, WA 98101.

What To Expect

Programming students at Epicodus typically take four five-week classroom courses, complete two weeks of job and internship prep, and finish their studies with a five-week internship. In total, you'll complete 800 hours of classroom learning, 80 hours of job and internship preparation, and at least 150 hours of internship learning. 

As a graduate, you'll be awarded a Certificate in Web and Mobile Development. Most of our graduates go on to work as junior-level web and mobile developers and are also involved in quality assurance and testing, and project management.

Do note that if you decide to pursue further education, most educational institutions will not accept Epicodus coursework as transfer credits.
