“Building a coding school from scratch can take months or years, with many iterative rounds of curriculum refinement, the results of which can vary widely,” said Shawn Drost, Hack Reactor Cofounder. “Hack Reactor Extension allows leaders to hit the ground running and utilize the most successful, outcomes-oriented coding school curriculum currently in existence to build their very own coding school.”
This year, Hack Reactor will educate more Software Engineers than Caltech, Stanford University and UC Berkeley put together. The employment rate of graduates from their three-month program is 99% with an average salary of $105,000. Hack Reactor has developed internal systems and processes to operate at scale. At the San Francisco school, they run four classes in parallel at any given time, an expansion that required additional infrastructure for program delivery, enabling the possibility of expanding to other cities with no drop-off in quality.
