    gab

    Graphic Designer turned Freelance Designer and Developer at Gab White Art & Design

    I moved across the country a week earlier and immediately felt at home. HackerYou is like summer camp for people who are ready to start doing meaningful work and change the world. I made lifelong friends, learned an entirely new skill set and changed my life.

    asaf

    Comedian turned Freelance Web Developer

    Honestly, there are plenty of ways you could learn to be a professional web developer. HackerYou teaches that really well, but they also work to build towards all the best parts of what the tech industry can be; exciting, diverse, and incredibly social and friendly.

    wisam

    Backend developer turned full-stack developer, now working with cutting-edge tech at rangle.io

    Curious about front-end web development, I joined HackerYou. Nine weeks later, I left with many incredible memories both inside and outside the Lab, with and without a computer. Now I have vision and clarity, and I love what I do!

    Innkeeper turned web developer, now full-stack engineer at CircleCI

    I really love the alumni presence at HackerYou. As someone new to the tech industry, the mentorship and insight from alumni who have been in my shoes has been invaluable. I look forward to mentoring the next cohort and perpetuating this cycle of success!

    emilia

    Designer turned developer, now working at Facebook in Menlo Park

    The group that HackerYou brings together are intentionally diverse in their backgrounds: librarians, receptionists, journalists, freelancers, and of course, designers. But we all have one very important thing in common: we want to create beautiful, interactive web experiences.

    hamsa

    Graphic designer turned developer freelancing in Pune, India

    I got the feeling that there was something more than code I was going to learn at HackerYou. I had found a community passionate about learning and helping one another. I felt at home.

    Musician turned developer now working in the startup world at AdParlor

    At HackerYou, there’s a sense of community; everyone has a passion for what they’re doing, the teaching is infectious. I have a different outlook on work and life in general now. I feel a lot more positive.

    jordan & trudy

    Economist and mainframe developer turned co-founders of Up at Five, a Toronto-based digital agency

    Everybody could be a programmer. People come to it from different backgrounds and bring different knowledge to it. Our success comes from our problem-solving nature, and willingness to be wrong. We didn’t plan to start an agency; we just followed our instincts.

    Curtis

    From cups of java to JavaScript.

    After working in bars for 10 years, I decided to learn to code. HackerYou's part-time web development class inspired me to learn things I never thought I could do before. Now, I’m making JavaScript applications!

    Simone

    From Ladies Learning Code to life-long learner.

    Taking the part-time web development courses literally changed my life! It inspired me to take on client work in my spare time, and I've since grown those skills into a successful full-time business called Holder Web Design. My future looks so bright!

    Stephanie

    Architect turned globetrotter.

    I enrolled in a HackerYou course while working as an architect. I felt incredibly inspired and supported by the environment, and consider it one of the best learning experiences of my life. I recently moved to Rwanda to work remotely on the web!

    Tom

    Construction worker turned senior developer and consultant

    HackerYou’s learn by doing approach was a perfect fit for me, and the experience was nothing short of amazing. The opportunity that HackerYou provided has put me in a position to absolutely love what I do every single day and I couldn’t be happier.

  • about
    karley

    Flight attendant turned Front End Developer at AdParlor and JavaScript Mentor at HackerYou

    I'd always had an interest in technology but before HackerYou I didn't have the confidence to believe I could be a developer. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I now have a job I love as a developer at a great tech company working on challenging projects every day.

    julia

    Office coordinator turned graphic designer and illustrator

    I was an Office Coordinator at a fin-tech startup and had the opportunity to pursue design at HackerYou. The work we completed in class enabled me to broaden my portfolio and hone my skills in graphic design. My time at HackerYou allowed me to move from a job into a career.
