In late August of 2015, Batch Academy spun out of Hack Reactor's Austin campus to offer part-time coding classes for working professionals in Central Texas. My co-founder Omar and I came together in an effort to fill this gap in the continuing education space with our passion for teaching and mentoring professionals looking to find the next step in their careers. Many months later, we've ran over 30 community workshops, supported various Austin-based social good organizations and graduated our first class of students. It is with sincere gratitude that we thank the Austin tech community for their welcoming support, the team at Reactor Core in San Francisco and namely our immediate advising team consisting of Harsh Patel, Brian Dainton, Shawn Drost and Ruan Pethiyagoda. Batch Academy wouldn't have been a success without the support of these folks.

Omar and I will be joining the national team at Hack Reactor to assist with the growth of the Hack Reactor product line across new and existing campuses. Hack Reactor's passionate team is dedicated to changing the paradigm of education for the 21st century and we're so thrilled to bring our energy and time to such an amazing mission.
