  2. New Study Shows Coding School Grads Do Well, Hack Reactor Grads Do Better

    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.

  3. Public School Coding Programs Should Tap into Coding Bootcamp Success

    It seems like everyday now, there is news of a new plan to introduce Computer Science classes into public schools somewhere in the world. New York City recently announced that such classes would be in all of its public schools in 10 years’ time. Only a few days later, Australia said that the entire country planned to teach coding starting at Year 5. Related initiatives have also been announced in other places as well including San FranciscoChicago, and the UK among others.

  5. San Leandro High School Launches Hack Club with Hack Reactor’s Help

    Jiahao Kuang’s story is about how community can turn coding from a hobby to a passion. Kuang, a sophomore at San Leandro High School, had dabbled with coding, but his interest really took flight last March when he went to Hack Camp, a two-week session for high schoolers put on by hackEDU. (Hack Reactor provided office space to hackEDU for an extended period last winter.) Hack Camp showed Kuang both the power of coding, and how much more fun and stimulating it is with a group of like-minded people. The experience inspired him to start his own Hack Club in his high school, and eventually connected him to Hack Reactor.
