My Review of Hack Reactor Remote Beta

February 20, 2015

I enrolled in the Hack Reactor Remote Beta as part of the second cohort in Hong Kong to improve my technical skills in JavaScript. The program was well-structured and offered a wealth of excellent lectures and hands-on experience in cutting-edge technologies.

I began by learning about recursion, closures, and data structures. Once I had a solid grasp of the basics, I moved on to learning various JavaScript frameworks, including BackboneJS, AngularJS, and NodeJS, all taught by instructors who are experts in their respective fields. To complete the course, I undertook multiple projects that provided comprehensive exposure to new tools like ThreeJS and ReactJS. For my thesis project, I built a machine-learning server to recommend beers, which was both challenging and enjoyable.

Collaborating with other remote students was a highly rewarding experience. We worked closely together, using Floobits for pair programming and Google Hangouts for daily stand-up meetings. The staff were exceptionally active on HipChat and were always eager to assist. The instructors were highly adept at teaching, making complex topics easily understandable even if you're not a computer science major. I appreciate their efforts in delivering this high-quality remote course.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in coding. It offers a five-star learning experience.
