1. 50 Scholarships to Remote Prep Available in Partnership with Women Who Code

    Women Who Code, a nonprofit devoted to bringing more women into the technology sector, is joining forces with our network to offer fifty full scholarships for Women Who Code members and friends, to attend our online beginners course Remote Prep. These scholarships of $600 each will enable women with little to no coding experience to build functioning apps and interactive websites, and gain a foundation in computer science principles through JavaScript. Those that want to take the next step in their software engineering careers will be well-prepared for the technical interview at Hack Reactor Remote Beta or any of the other immersive Javascript programs in the Reactor Core network.
