"Hands-down THE best educational experience of my life"

I have done a lot of educational programs, but this was by far the best educational experience of my life. The program is so hands on and concrete--there's no extra stuff that you can just coast through. Instead, you learn actionable skills and apply... Read More

"Review 4.5 years later"

I went to Hack Reactor Remote Beta in the fall of 2015. I had no coding background and it was one of the hardest, and most rewarding things I've done. We worked 6 days a week, 11+ hours a day (a lot more during project phase). I graduated in December... Read More

When I came on the job, I expected it to be just like Hack Reactor, long days, very heads down. What I realized though, was that Hack Reactor made doing my job very easy. Since I was used to working so hard and having to solve unknown issues quickly to make it through, getting in on my first corporate job was pretty smooth sailing. I felt confident that whatever they gave me, I could figure out. It is still like that to this day. The skills I learned at Hack Reactor have translated into every area of my life!

I went from working menial jobs to a high paid software career extremely quickly and I'm so grateful. My career coach was amazing, the community of alumni is amazing, and I would recommend to anyone looking to get into the field quickly. You can absolutely learn on your own, but I found that the instruction and community was top notch and gave me a leg up on the job.

"Hack reactor is a great decision"

Going to hack reactor was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It was a ton of hard work, fast learning and difficult concepts, but the way they teach you does work. I was never the top of my class, am not the smartest algorithmically. Hack reactor still... Read More

Overall Pros and Cons:
Pros:
- Surrounded by like minded individuals who want to learn and grow.
- Very little hand holding throughout the program. You'll need to solve problems like you would in a work environment by researching, reading, asking for help from classmates.
- Intensive. You will learn a lot in a short amount of time. When you look back you will be surprised at how much you've learned.
- Instruction staff are all wonderful who go above and beyond for students.
- Large alumni network that can help you in the job search.
- Staff open to changing curriculum to best fit needs of the students.
- Technical and soft skills will improve.
- You get to learn algorithms that will help in the job search.
- Get to work on projects.
- Career Support.

Cons:
- Expensive.
- Long days. 6 days a week will wear on you by the end of the program.

The program isn't for everyone it isn't easy and you need to be focused, motivated, and fully dedicated to the program. But if you put in the time and effort you can succeed.
