The Hack Reactor Software Engineering Immersive is an advanced coding bootcamp focused on building autonomous software engineers ready for any job in the tech industry. Every unit in our curriculum is optimized for educational power and efficiency. The first half of the course is often described as “drinking from a firehose” because of how much information it packs in. In the second half, you use your new coding skills to build projects while learning new technology on the fly. By the end, you will be an expert software engineer, capable of tackling unique and unfamiliar problems as well as building complex applications. If you’re interested in joining one of the top coding bootcamps, we offer locations in Austin, Denver, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix (Remote), San Francisco, Seattle, and online.
You start by learning foundational tech and fundamentals, then immediately put your knowledge into action with carefully designed assignments and personal software engineering projects that you conceive and build from the ground up.
Professional software engineers have defined goals, but no roadmap of how to get there. Our students don’t just follow directions, they learn how to chart the course.
We prepare you for a competitive job market with resume assistance, personal branding development, interviewing skills, and career coaching.

Take our concentrated, fast-track coding bootcamp prep program.
Once you’ve been accepted, ramp up your skills to prepare for the Hack Reactor Immersive.
During this week you’ll learn how to interview and negotiate, while building your online presence.
You find and apply to the companies of your dreams, while we help you find the best job and negotiate the right terms.
Prior to starting your immersive program, you’ll be required to complete the Precourse curriculum remotely. The Software Engineering Immersive Precourse curriculum takes 90-120 hours to complete.
In the first week, you’ll be immersed in learning the fundamental concepts and strategies considered best practices in the software engineering industry.
Basic and advanced data structures
Thinking like an engineer
Using JS instantiation patterns
Client & Server Side concepts
Database & Deployment technologies
Get some rest and work on an individual project. There are no scheduled lectures during Solo Week.
Work in teams that resemble industry standards to develop functional applications. Work with new technologies and put your bug testing to good use.
In the last week, you’ll prepare for the job search by doing practice interviews, learning negotiation tactics and tuning your resume and online presence.
Build an Application from scratch
Use new languages & technologies
Learn advanced team dynamics such as agile workflow and iterative development
We constantly improve our curriculum based on new trends, changing needs of the tech industry, and feedback from our students and alumni.
Our online bootcamp curriculum includes live pair programming to get you as close to a working environment as possible.
During the second half of the course, students use their skills to design and build fully functional apps from scratch. The schedule during this period is more open-ended, but equally intense.
At Hack Reactor, you gain more than an education; you develop a network. In addition to working and learning alongside some of the best and brightest minds in the tech industry, you join a network of over 10,000 alumni.
You'll kick off the day with AM Announcements and then, most days, work on thoughtfully crafted Toy Problems.
Depending on the day you will be watching lectures and working with your pair on the most recently assigned Sprint.
Enjoy lunch with your classmates.
Enjoy scheduled exercise time or just take a break.
As in the morning, we'll introduce new concepts by beginning a new project together on the projector, and send you out to work on it with your pair.
Decompress and let concepts solidify over a meal.
Gather with your entire class for an evening lecture.
MatchJS is an app designed to connect current and aspiring software engineers seeking to improve their skills in a certain area with mentors who have real-world experience and are willing to share their knowledge. By allowing users to post their availability and seek out mentors by skill-set, MatchJS aims to make the way we learn and teach a more open and communal experience.

Prior industry or academic experience is not required, but most successful applicants have been introduced to programming by writing some code independently, or by working through courses on e-learning platforms such as CodeSchool or Codecademy. Hack Reactor is not a "0–60" course, this is a "20–120" course. If you haven't written any code yet, see below for recommended resources. If you study from those resources for a few hours a day, you should be able to complete the admissions challenge within two weeks. Read more here about how to prepare for the admissions challenge.
Beyond having some coding experience, successful applicants are passionate, intelligent learners and clear, empathic communicators.
There isn't a "typical" Hack Reactor applicant - our students come from a variety of backgrounds. Some hold a CS degree and want to get web dev specific training before applying to jobs, some come from adjacent fields such as design or IT and have tangentially worked with coding, and many come from unrelated fields, looking to gain a complete skill set and begin a career in engineering.
We encourage you to submit an application to start the admissions process.
You will also be asked to indicate your preferred campus, so please assess our locations to determine which is right for you.
