Hack Reactor is a unique coding school for many reasons, but our connections to the JavaScript community, seasoned Software Engineers, and real-time innovation in the industry--like virtual reality company Leap Motion--set us apart. The Leap Motion Controller was named a Top 10 Gadget in 2013 by Time.

Twenty attendees made this MeetUp an intimate and collaborative experience. Hack Reactor students were expected to have access to:

* an ide/text editor like WebStorm 
* the Chrome web browser 
* an active GitHub account so they could pull files during the meeting

Students were also asked to  download the installation software for the Leap drivers. To help students get the most out of the event, Bianca Gandolfo, Hack Reactor grad and co-organizer also shared pre-event prep: Featured three.js projects and Leap Motion's Developer Guide.

And Dave shared the full slide deck of the presentation.
