Right out of the gate, our grads are trained to do work that we're proud to share.
People come to Alchemy equipped with creativity and the ambition to make a meaningful contribution to the world. After gaining robust software development skills through our rigorous program, they’re ready to combine that creativity with top-tier tech. The results are extraordinary. Alchemy grads consistently provide examples of how software development can solve human-centered problems!
Check out these three post-grad collaborative projects that contribute to the community while also serving as stellar portfolio pieces:
- Sonic Blooming: A sound app for Portland’s International Rose Test Garden
- An app benefiting the nonprofit New Avenues for Youth
- Gibberish: A game redesign inspired by Scrabble for HackOR
Expressing Natural Phenomena through Sound
Sonic Blooming is an example of tech’s power to enrapture, thrill, and capture beauty in a fresh way. The app allows people to explore, meditate, and generally vibe with the plants in the International Rose Test Garden or at home in their own garden. Plus, it's easy to use on multiple platforms.
Alchemy grads Mikey Romay (June 2020 Cohort) and Jena Boehm (March 2021 Cohort) used their development skills to feature nature in collaboration with sound artist Crystal Cortez.
