Anli Y, Hackbright alumna
Software Engineer @ Gametime United
"I knew I wanted to be in a place where I'd feel empowered, where the quality of instruction was really high, and where I could practice both self-care and ownership over my learning experience. Hackbright's environment made that possible for me."
Melissa S, Hackbright alumna
Software Engineer @ Lever
"The most important thing Hackbright taught me is how to learn. The curriculum teaches you how to build a web app from scratch, but more importantly, how to continue iterating on that app, introduce new technologies, and progress even after you graduate."
Tammie K, Hackbright alumna
Software Engineer @ Uber
When I was learning to code on my own, I didn’t always get the full context of what I was trying to learn. At Hackbright, I was able to get to the heart of each problem, and the high number of TAs available for questions meant that I was able to get personal attention during lab exercises."
Hackbright Academy strives to provide the best possible experience for students in the program and beyond.
