Portland Code School goes under
On Saturday night I got word via Slack channel that the locks at Portland Code School have been changed and everyone’s on their own.
Once word got out some students and employees immediately formed a channel and picked up the communication in an effort to get the current students set up to finish what they started. That includes generous offers of work space (from graduates and mentors) and teaching assistance from the fantastic staff. All of whom are now out of work.
It’s also a hit to folks like myself who have just recently entered the job market. We rely on (and were quite explicitly promised) support in our job search. I’m sure I’ll be fine, but it’s still bad news.
