Why Isn't This Working? A Practical Demonstration of Debugging
Check out last week's Tech Talk "Why Isn't This Working? A Practical Demonstration of Debugging" with Tech Academy co-founder Erik Gross!

Renovations began early this year to give the Tech Academy courseroom and offices a much needed face lift. Our goal was to create a welcoming, modern environment that added to the student experience at The Tech Academy, reflects who we are as a company, and that we are proud to tour prospective students and partners through.
It’s been a long couple months of hard work, long nights and manual labor, but renovations are finally complete and we’re ready to show off our new digs!
In addition to updating our existing offices and course room, we’ve expanded to the second floor of the Board of Trade building - almost doubling our square footage! This expansion allowed us to add a dedicated Tech Talk area, and a proper student lounge/lunchroom to our campus. Students can now study in the course room without the distraction of a Tech Talk or event encroaching on their space, or unwind in the lunchroom without worry of disturbing others.
The Tech Academy is hosting a Grand Re-Opening celebration on Thursday, June 14 to show off our newly remodeled campus to our friends, family and the entire Portland tech community! Join us for happy hour food and drinks, networking, and a tour of the school!
Doors will open for a catered Happy Hour at 5:30 p.m., followed by a brief welcome presentation by Tech Academy Co-Founder Erik Gross, George Fox Professor Dr. Brent Wilson, and Miss Oregon 2017 Harley Emery at 6 p.m.
