10/10 would attend again. Best bootcamp in Portland and probably the PWN. The program is twice as long as most other bootcamps and because of that I was competent/confident when I entered a software engineering position.

I come from a background with no formal education– not even kindergarten– and Alchemy was recommended to me by a few graduates who were both satisfied with their education and employed in jobs they loved. It was an incredible journey that tested my sanity at times, but every single person– from the CEO to the TAs– had my back the whole way. I had rough days where I needed emotional support most of all, and was always made to feel cared for and about. My education (and development as a lifelong learner) was always top priority, and I felt that at every point in the program. I’ve come away with strong technical skills, a community full of bright, kind people who celebrated all my victories with me, and newfound personal confidence. 11/10, would go again.

I’ve attended regular college in the past but Alchemy takes education to a whole new level.
In just 6 months I went from someone who knew next to nothing about software to having in depth conversations with industry veterans.
I had the chance to work in Alchemy’s, “App Lab” upon graduation. I worked with real clients on real projects on a daily basis. This made the interviewing process much smoother. I also picked up additional skills that weren’t included in the standard curriculum – and got paid to do it.
Not only that but I had help from their career consular to help me get hired. Shannon doesn’t just give you tips on your resume – she gets you interviews.
I remember reading these reviews before considering joining the program just like you’re doing. I would highly recommend the program to literally anyone.

Coming from a microbiology background in academia and transitioning to coding, I learned a ton of things at Alchemy that I didn’t learn in a traditional school setting or coding by myself online. For example, I learned how to code using agile practices with a variety of people in creative group projects with deadlines. I learned how to talk about code, not just to do it. I learned about the Portland tech scene and got a much better idea of how I fit into it. I learned to expand my network and push myself out of my comfort zone to make meaningful connections. Finally, I learned a ton about the job application process. Mock interviews and a week of career prep wasn’t easy or fun for me as an introvert, but it really helped prepare me for the job hunt.
Alchemy gave me the knowledge and confidence to get and perform well in job interviews. My Alchemy experience allowed me to have a much better idea of the salary I could ask for. Shannon was such a positive support throughout the process that I always felt someone had my back. Both Megan and Marty also provided invaluable support and advice even after I completed the program.
A huge plus was the Alchemy community. My fellow cohort (19 people total) was such an interesting and wonderful group of people from all different backgrounds and ages. A highlight of my experience was mob programming with them, in groups of 3-5. The TAs were graduates of the program and also provided emotional as well as instructional support.
It is a big money investment and there are times when you feel the collective struggles of the group and individuals. There are times when you may struggle a lot yourself. It’s not easy, and outsiders (like your friends and family) may not understand what you are going through. However, I found it to be a huge personal growth experience that has paid off. I just accepted a job offer (with higher salary than I have ever made before) this past week, and I am so excited to continue to code because I feel like I can actually contribute and excel at it.

I decided to pursue programming as a career because I lacked mental stimulation and the ability to make an impact in my day to day job. I researched all the bootcamps in the Portland area and it took one conversation with Megan, the school director to make my decision. The questions that were asked were so different than other schools and were focused around me and my learning style– I knew this place was special. Alchemy’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in making everyone feel welcomed despite your background was a huge indicator to me that this was the right place for me. The curriculum was difficult and challenging, but no one’s ever built a six pack by sitting on the couch. And this is the secret to Alchemy’s success. The program does an excellent job by forcing you to become comfortable with being uncomfortable. It’s a bootcamp in every facet of the word, constantly pushing you to learn and overcome. You have support available to you at every step of the way– instructors, TAs, fellow classmates, adorable doggies, school director, and career services. Oh yeah, career services. Shannon is a magician behind the scenes pulling strings to get you in the door and nail the interview. I’ve had two jobs post-graduation, and both interviews were secured because of– you guessed it, Shannon. If you have the opportunity to be a part of this wonderful family, don’t hesitate. It was truly a special experience, one I only wish I could go through again.
