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.

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.

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!
