Don’t just Learn to Code: Think Like a Software Engineer

"With no formal coding experience, and no dedicated path to begin a coding career, I felt stuck. But the structured study program [Premium Prep] propelled my level of coding understanding forward at a rate I never thought I'd achieve. It excited me for what I could expect to achieve in the Immersive. And it gave me hope to what I could accomplish in my future career."  

—Tiffany P, Hack Reactor alumni, former student  

Learn quickly and effectively - with the focus, community and accountability you need to succeed

Hack Reactor @ Galvanize has partnered with MissionBit to offer students a fast-track coding program and an opportunity to prepare for admittance into Hack Reactor’s 12-week Immersive Coding Bootcamp.  

 Premium Prep [formerly "Structured Study Program (SSP)"] provides over 100 hours of live supported learning in a group setting where you’ll develop foundational programming & Javascript skills.

A program built to overcome the challenges of self-paced learning, including assessments that provide you with updates on your progress, and on-site support as a safety net. 

While no pre-existing knowledge is required to sign up -- the most important thing is a commitment to us and yourself -- we do ask all students to put in some time before the first day of class to complete as much of our recommended pre-requisites (10-12 hours of work) as possible. You can read more about these pre-requisites in our FAQ.

Participation is essential and we ask all students to attend at least 27 of the 30 classes.
