Our jumpstarters are people who learned technology from various backgrounds like computer science, self-taught coder, software engineer, entrepreneurship, software architect and cybersecurity! We work on a peer-learning model and they have successfully learned to code, worked professionally as developers and play a pivotal role in keeping the community tight.
"I joined the very first HiPO group and was very happy to find a great community that is passionate about learning new technologies. This has definitely sharpened my software development skills along the way and made me so much more confident in tackling real world projects."
"Learning to code alone was really difficult. The Hacker Collective provided me the perfect platform to meet like-minded individuals and helped me open the doors to the world of development."
"Started off as a junior HiPO participant learning web development from scratch, these weekly meetups motivated me in my journey in self-teaching. Now, I'm giving back by being a Jumpstarter for beginner groups!"
“I’ve tried to learn coding online, but it’s hard when you’re doing it alone without any guidance. I’m happy to join the class as it accelerates my understanding towards the subject. The presence of classmates helped my motivation in tackling tough subjects.”
"I went from having zero knowledge to being fully exposed to the world of tech and improving my problem solving skills!"
"I joined The Hacker Collective because I was interested in learning how web application works and intrigued by coding. Throughout the course, I learned various programming languages. I have also successfully created my own web app"
"I came across The Hacker Collective when I was looking into programming. They were able to provide a community where we were able to learn from one another. We were also able to pick up projects which is also what i'm currently doing right now with The Hacker Collective "
"I joined The Hacker Collective because I really enjoy coding. The Hacker Collective has provided me a great platform to be part of projects."
"Coming from Iran, I told myself to self-learn coding with hopes to start my career as a front-end developer. However for the past year, I've been stuck in tutorial purgatory. I couldn't build anything from scratch! Now I'm really happy to be offered an opportunity to work on real-world projects with The Hacker Collective."
We look forward to have you in our journey expanding the #selftaught movement across Southeast Asia!
