What can a coding school student expect from their education? Course Report, which collects and reports data on the coding bootcamp industry, interviewed hundreds of graduates across 44 coding schools, including Hack Reactor, in an attempt to get a broad view of the industry. Alice Truong (@alicetruong) at Quartz translated this data into a series of easy-to-read charts. Here are some key stats, along with breakdowns of how Hack Reactor compares.
It’s the same story for student placement rates:
Our placement stats are more binary: the question we ask is whether or not a job-seeking graduate received an offer within three months. The answer is that virtually all of them--99%--do.
Course Report’s data also shows that, while bootcamps are moving things forward, the gender and racial stats in the software development world still are quite different from the rest of the country.
We have taken steps to bring in groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in the technology sector. The Reactor Core network includes Telegraph Academy, the premier coding school for underrepresented people of color. We also have partnered with Optimizely on a scholarship for women, and are seeking similar partnerships with other companies.
The coding school industry is growing rapidly, and it is important to take periodic snapshots to understand the space as a whole and where we fit into it. This latest data from Course Report shows that we remain well above industry averages.
