  2. Hack Reactor & MakerSquare Ready to Take on SXSWedu

    Hack Reactor is joining partner school MakerSquare in Austin, TX for SXSWedu. This education-focused spinoff of the popular tech and music festival South by Southwest will bring together many great minds and organizations in tech and education. SXSWedu offers many opportunities to learn from and mingle with MakerSquare and us. 

  3. Expanding our Network: Hack Reactor Acquires MakerSquare

    The team here at Hack Reactor has big news that we’re happy to share.  As you may have heard, we’ve reached an agreement to acquire MakerSquare, pending regulatory review. We couldn’t be more excited! MakerSquare is a leading coding school with campuses in San Francisco and Austin. They are the first school to become part of our “extension school” program, a partnership-based model to allow new or existing schools to leverage the systems and resources that Hack Reactor uses to train software engineers. We’re looking forward to transforming education together through this relationship and helping our programs grow to reach more students and serve the national demand for software engineers.
