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? 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 whats going on under the hood of a code base.

Joseph Martin

Technical Mentor and Campus Lead, New York

“Anyone who has gone through the Hack Reactor NYC curriculum would consider Joseph a "Jedi" or "wizard" of code. He is the head instructor for obvious reasons. Joseph writes impeccable, modularized, efficient code. He is a gifted, clear educator who pays fine-grained attention to details. Whenever there is a need for something new in the program, I have seen him write excellent, syntax-error-free curricula in short time. I have learned a ton working with him.”
