What You Learn at
Hack Reactor LA

Computer Science Fundamentals

Data Structures icon representation.

Data Structures

As programmers we can take data we get from the world or other apps and structure it any way we want. We teach methods and strategies to turn a chaotic world into logical, meaningful data sets.

Algorithms & Algorithmic Complexity icon representation.

Algorithms & Algorithmic

Once you have your data structures, what do you do with them? Algorithms determine how your data is used. This is the basic principle behind everything from Google’s search engine to self-driving cars.

Object-Oriented and Functional Programming icon representation.

Object-Oriented and
Functional Programming

These are the two central paradigms of modern web development, and we make sure you are comfortable working with both. This is essential to understanding what's going on under the hood of a code base.

Full-Stack App Development

Frontend and Backend Technologies Stack from Hack Reactor Curriculum Frontend and Backend Technologies Stack from Hack Reactor Curriculum


React has quickly become one of the most important JavaScript frameworks. You’ll learn how to leverage its unique design to build incredible apps.

Angular and Backbone

Equipped with every major front-end framework, students learn their relative advantages and the meta-skill of choosing the best technologies for a specific project.

Node, APIs and Databases

Node allows JavaScript to cross over to the back end, making it one of today’s most important web technologies. You’ll learn to use APIs and databases to build a back-end that powers your app.

Production-Grade Engineering

Software Engineering Best Practices icon representation.

Software Engineering Best Practices

We teach you to write code that grows with its user base, is bug-free, and can weather worst-case scenarios. You’ll learn industry collaboration tools like Git, so you are ready for day one on the job.

Technical Project Management & Communication icon representation.

Technical Project Management & Communication

The ability to plan, scope and manage a project makes you a strong team contributor. We emphasize pair programming, so students learn to communicate effectively about code structure.

Resumes, Whiteboarding & Mock Interviews icon representation.

Resumes, Whiteboarding & Mock Interviews

Our dedicated outcomes team helps prepare you to secure and negotiate offers. You’ll work one-on-one with job coaches to succeed in a competitive job market.

The people are the difference here. The curriculum was challenging, but the staff, especially the fellows, were supportive and helped me get through technical and non-technical challenges. The job support after graduation was effective, I had my first offer after 4 weeks. I'm at a company I like with a salary that is far beyond what I was making before so everything worked out.”
