Meet the instructor: Andrew Lorente!
A week before classes commence, students will be provided Treehouse accounts and expected to complete a few interactive tutorials. This will ensure all students arrive with a similar baseline of knowledge. Students will be expected to attend classes 9am-5pm M-F, but will also have access to the classroom during off hours allowing additional time for group learning. Students will primarily be working and learning in groups of 2-4 people.
Integrating oneself into the Portland tech community is possibly the single best decision a new student can make. Forging connections and friendships by attending tech meetups and events is the best way to do this. We cannot force you to do this, but we will try (in a loving way :)
PCS hosts and sponsors community events periodically. Some of these will be organized and run by our students. Another powerful way for web developers to put their best foot forward — and be extra attractive to employers — is to contribute to open source projects. We will cover best practices and different ways to make this happen during the course.
