Alchemy Code Final Projects - August 2020

Welcome to Alchemy Code Lab!

These students are finishing our professional software development training. They are the first group to start with us remotely, and have learned to code, collaborate and be incredible teammates working from their homes. Following you will find their Final Projects which harnesses the use of React, Redux, MongoDB, NodeJS, Express, and more. These projects were built in a one week sprint, remotely.

Our emphasis on process, regular testing and immersive lab sessions allow our grads to understand how their coding works and why it does what it does. As the only engineering education in town that serves Portland and Portland only, combined with in-person training by experienced senior software developers, our grads are real contributors. We stay on top of the most used technologies and aim for our grads to evolve Portland's economy and community through the companies they go to work for. Here is an overview of their syllabus through our Career Track training.

Below is an overview of the apps presented and links to their sites and video of their presentations. Links to the LinkedIn profile each student is also included.
