I recently graduated (April 2021 alumni) with the Austin cohort. First, let me say that I originally came in with lower expectations because I feel that having an online experience would be worse than in-person. Both Kimberly and Tom, the two Program... Read More Leads of the Austin campus, proved me wrong by tailoring the curriculum and miscellaneous documentations to maximize the online class experience. What I really loved during the program is that the instructors are very transparent and open to feedback from the students by hosting weekly retrospectives to make the experience better for current and future cohorts. Solid thumbs up for keeping the interests of students first. In terms of the actual technical materials, it's definitely created with the purpose to continuously push you to the edge. The Pre-course material already gives you a slight idea of what to expect during the immersive program. You WILL struggle, and you WILL constantly feel like giving up. But that's okay, because that's how you learn. They give you the things you need to know to get the job done, but it's up to you to be more autonomous throughout the program and learn things yourself. That being said, there are resources, such as provided documentation and Help Desk from fellow HR residents, that can push you to the right direction whenever you feel stuck. Lastly, HR has a Job Search program that assists you to find a career after you graduate. The Career Service Managers put in the effort to teach students how to increase the chances to make job applications to land you that first interview. So far, I'm having a great experience with the JSP, and can't wait to utilize it while I do my job hunt.
I recently graduated from Hack Reactor Software Engineer Immersive Program (full time) and currently looking for a position as a software engineer. I am in my late 30s and have no CS degree or engineering background (have not written a single code until... Read More I started HR prep). I felt I may be too old to change the career, but I did not want to regret not trying. I decided to join HR because of their solid record for students being successful as software engineers. Yes, it is expensive, but, the amount is an investment for yourself and if you successfully land a job as an engineer, and you will be able to make up for it in a few years. Like everyone said here, this program is tough hence I believe this may not be for everyone. however, for those who are willing to put in the hard work, HR will make sure that students get the most out of it. I liked the fact that Hack Reactor is actively adjusting the curriculum based on feedback from the students to keep the material relevant in the job market and how students are learning. Students are given very specific assignments in the beginning so they can learn the fundamentals but as the program progresses, they become more open as long as the minimum requirements are met. Students are forced to work and learn from each other all the time and I believe HR does a great job making the right atmosphere for that. Learning how to code is the primary goal, but learning how to work with other engineers is just as important since most of us will be working in teams. I personally believe the best part of Hack Reactor is the support system. If you are having a tough time, you can always ask for help or they will also reach out to make sure you get the help that you need. You will also get a lot of support from fellow students who are always willing to help other students. I would not be able to finish the program without either of them. As long as you know this is what you want to do and committed to the goal, Hack Reactor is a great choice. I am really glad that I joined the program and I do not have to do it again.
Having so many different options on which bootcamp to attend, I am so happy I went with Hack Reactor. In the 12 weeks I learned so much and felt very prepared to enter the work force. The entire time I felt very supported and never felt alone in my journey.... Read More Their curriculum is very well made and I loved working on my projects.
Switching careers is always scary especially when you need to take 4 months out of your life to learn a new skill. Having a few friends that went through the program before me, made it easy for me to decide on this bootcamp. Like everything, you will... Read More get as much out of this program as you choose to put in. There was not an opportunity to go to either campus by my house so I had to take the class online. I was very much NOT looking forward to this but it turned out amazing. I have life long friends from it and one even visited the day after graduation. I absolutely love my new job and career and I couldnt have made this transition without Hack Reactor. They even got me the interview that landed me the job. Having been working as a software engineer for over a year now I can say this program is worth every penny.
I graduated from Hack Reactor's San Francisco campus (held entirely online due to COVID-19) in February 2021, and I strongly recommend this program for anyone looking to break into software engineering. Before Hack Reactor, I worked in the Pharmaceutical... Read More industry and had no coding experience. When I became interested in making a career change, I researched Hack Reactor, having heard good things about it through a friend who had made a similar career change a couple of years prior. What stands out to me about the program are two things: First, the curriculum is carefully curated and iterated upon endlessly to expose you to all of the relevant and essential concepts in software engineering and full-stack web development. Second, the staff are top-notch and provide excellent support in guiding you to be a professional and autonomous software engineer. The team understands the program's difficulty, monitors everyone's progress, checks in regularly, and provides support as needed. Overall, I believe the program was well worth the time, money, and effort spent. I would not have been able to get up to speed as quickly as I did without Hack Reactor and the excellent staff. Pros: I learned a lot in such a short time and met great people. Cons: To get the most out of the course requires your complete attention and dedication for a few months.
