1. Alumna Combines Artificial Intelligence & Internet of Things Using NASA Software

    Kate Jenkins, who graduated from Hack Reactor over a year ago, has worked since then on a small but impactful team at Ejenta, using proprietary software Brahms, developed at the NASA Ames Research Center. Originally designed to track and model the biometrics and behavior of astronauts, Ejenta, which has sole use of the software, is using it to make advances in healthcare, defense and robotics. As part of a four-person developer team (in a seven-person company), Jenkins is integral to everything the company does.

  2. Charitable Student Project Facilitates Gifts to Children in Need

    Three Hack Reactor students took on a project that allowed them to build a project from scratch for a client while doing some good for the world. The city of San Mateo, just south of San Francisco, runs a gift registry for children in need through their Human Services Agency. The registry regularly has around 300 children, and swells to 3,000 during the winter holidays. What it lacked was an efficient way to run the registry.
