With over two decades of experience in the field, Marty began partnering with the Code Fellows network as an instructor in 2015, and helped shape and modernize the program’s 400 level, Career Track, curriculum.
Since taking ownership of the school in 2016, Marty, and his wife Megan, co-owner and School Director, have built a program that engages directly with Portland’s tech and creative communities -- ensuring that our city’s leading-edge companies have access to the talent they need.
From the start, we’ve found the advanced curriculum created by Code Fellows to be the very best -- and it’s why we opened our doors with confidence in a city brimming with bootcamps. For its first two years, Alchemy Code Lab operated as Code Fellows PDX.
