The HackYourFuture team
Throughout your HYF course and your overall career as a programmer, you will ‘control your own fate’. 25-30 hours of study is just the minimum we suggest. The more you know and the harder you work, the faster you will find yourself in a job you love. The more you participate and become part of the HYF community, the more people are going to be willing to help you out. The more friends you make.
We want to provide you with the knowledge, tools and support you'll need to build a career as a programmer. To support yourself and your loved ones.
This is not a race against the curriculum or a race against other students. This is a race against yourself, so be sure to come up first every time, every day. We are glad to have you on board!
