Hack Reactor by Galvanize bootcamps are challenging, life-changing, and designed to fit a student’s schedule and skill level. Bootcamps include a 19-Week Software Engineering Immersive with JavaScript and Python, designed for beginners, as well as a 12-Week Software Engineering Immersive and a 36-Week Part-Time Software Engineering Immersive, designed for those with intermediate coding skills.

Applicants to the 12-week and 36-week Software Engineering Immersives need to pass a Technical Admissions Assessment (TAA), which tests for intermediate coding competency. There is a free, self-paced bootcamp prep course that can be accessed to learn the fundamentals of JavaScript. Those applying for the 19-week program do not need to pass the TAA or take any prep courses. Applicants to all programs need to pass an aptitude test, a brief typing test, and an admissions interview.

In addition to its software engineering programs, Hack Reactor provides a large network of professional peers, 1:1 coaching, mock interviews, job training, and more. All students graduate as autonomous, full-stack software engineers, fully capable of tackling unique problems and building complex applications on the job.

I like to think of the classroom setting at Hack Reactor to be like the teacher that hands out assignments and expects you to figure out what you're supposed to learn from the textbook. Leads don't really help with the cohort and Help Desk is what you... Read More
