The data visualization class was a fascinating and fast-paced deep dive into modern visualization techniques with an emphasis on getting your hands dirty and coding right away. The instructor was knowledgeable and helpful, and I couldn’t recommend it more.

Hack U classes are awesome because they’re as specific or as interdisciplinary as each student wants them to be. Yeah, I learned how to make cool D3 visualizations, but also I learned to consider UX and data storytelling so that those visualizations are actually useful.

Hack University DevOps was a wonderful addition to my understanding of the world of DevOps. It allowed me to solidify the concepts that I’m always discussing at work and to use tools indepthly that I only get to briefly interact with on the job. It was both fun and informative and I’d definitely take a class like that again.

Participating in the Hack U Project Management course was an amazing, insightful experience. The class was a great combination of readings, discussion, and projects to which I could actively apply the concepts I was learning. I’ve found it super applicable to my job and have gained a ton of new ideas and tools for running more efficient, effective projects at work.

The Hack University Machine Learning Course was a mix of expert level instruction and hands on experience using some of the most current machine learning techniques. We had a very passionate instructor who was able to break down complex concepts and help us apply them to the personal projects we worked on throughout the class.

The data science class got me set up with all the tools I needed to wrangle real-world data. Heidi, the instructor, was super knowledgeable and helpful in working through any obstacles I came across, from development environment setup to making my data do backflips.

The Database Engineering course was accessible, comprehensive and fun! I was worried as a relative newcomer to the world of “Big Data” that Hack U would be over my head—- but I was able to learn a new skill in a relaxed and welcoming learning environment.

After Hack University’s Web Development course, I was able to fluently apply bleeding-edge technologies to an open-data project that really mattered, all while meeting and working alongside some of the smartest people I’ve ever met. If you’re self-motivated, there is no more certain way to up your tech skills than taking a course with HackU and working with a Hack Oregon product team. A++, would hack again.

“Our UX instructor was a very inclusive and engaging speaker who tailored the coursework to suit each of our interests and technical abilities. I have come away with a thorough framework on how to apply design thinking to real world scenarios.”
— Jennifer Trezza, User Experience Design Class
The Hack U Cartography course was an adventure in map making that took us from tracking down spatial data to GIS techniques and putting it all together in a web map. I loved the collaborative learning environment and the support of both the instructor and fellow students.

Hack University’s product management course is a fast paced and multi-faceted challenge. Not for the faint of heart, but an incredible experience.

Hack University’s Machine Learning class was a highly practical, slightly esoteric dive into a wide range of complex problems and their solutions, all taught with (re)usable Python code. As a mid-career professional, I found that the quality and diversity of topics, instructors, and especially classmates made this class uniquely valuable as a complement to more traditional learning approaches.
— Lindsay Mico, Machine Learning Class
Hack University helped me understand the design work that is a part of product development, which expanded my perspective of the development process and helped broaden my professional skill set.

I found the Hack Oregon Web Development class to be very challenging and rewarding. The instructor was knowledgeable, professional, and accessible. The class has made me a better developer by leaps and bounds.
