What this blog is about

Hi there! My name's Rohan and I graduated from the 12th cohort of Hack Reactor. I'm pretty evangelical about my experience there and I answer a lot of questions about HR on Quora. I also get plenty of direct messages from people asking me about Hack Reactor and my experience with it both as a student and interviewer, while a Hacker in Residence. I figured I may as well start my own blog to keep this info in one place that's easier to reference.

I hope you find this helpful. =)

Things you should know about me and this blog:
  • I do not work for Hack Reactor, and am not in any way formally associated with the school. The school does not pay me and I do not pay it. I like them a lot, think they're totally awesome and visit frequently. I now work for a tiny, awesome little SaaS startup called Compgun.

  • As far as I'm aware, Hack Reactor does not formally endorse this blog in any way. Anything you read here is my opinion and does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the school.

  • My brother, Ruan, graduated from Hack Reactor's third cohort after doing lots of cool things. He now works for Hack Reactor. In all honesty, I'm not entirely sure exactly what his job there is.

  • My opinions on working in the US, immigration and visas are based entirely on my observations and experience. While I'm happy to share these with you, I'm not an immigration lawyer, and I'm definitely not qualified to give you formal advice.

Feel completely free to ask any questions you might have about the Hack Reactor that you think I might be able to answer here.
