Hear from Hack Reactor Grads

“The bootcamp has taught me not to cram, not to try to know everything, but to learn at a pace that’s enjoyable. After all, what’s great about being a programmer is the continuous learning.”

Natalie Tang
Software Engineer at J.P. Morgan Chase

“Hack Reactor definitely prepared me in a number of ways! First, the technology and tools taught in Hack Reactor (JavaScript, NoSQL databases, and Git workflows) are things that I use daily in my current role and the focus Hack Reactor had on understanding basic concepts also allowed me to quickly pick up other things that I use daily including the Java language. Also, there is a big focus at Amazon on ownership, so being able to talk about my work or present solutions in meetings was a great skill that Hack Reactor helped me to develop.”

“It was a useful experience to undergo such a rigorous program with a bunch of other people who were doing the same thing, as we’re all making presumably big pivots in our lives together. It built a lot of comradery and trust, and we could lean on each other.”
