1. Obama Administration Hosts Roundtable With Hack Reactor and Other Top Coding Schools to Discuss Getting Jobs for Veterans

    The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) invited our founders, along with other coding school leaders to meet with officials in the Obama Administration and executives of major employers, such as Microsoft, AT&T and UPS, to discuss a growing issue in the United States: finding jobs for veterans. With 2.5 million veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan returning to the U.S. at a time when the economy is still on uncertain ground, there is an urgent need for institutions like Hack Reactor that can quickly train adults in high-demand skills. That the White House identified Hack Reactor and other Accelerated Learning Programs (ALPs) shows that they are up on emerging trends in education.
