The first Hack Reactor class has graduated started working, a new cohort has arrived and my class is now the senior class. The new students are awesome! Considering how selective Hack Reactor is, I can't say I'm surprised, but it has been great to meet them all.
My personal project went down to the wire since I kept changing directions, but it's been great. I learned how to make a scheme interpreter and then changed directions, making a domain specific language for my robot game. I also had the chance to present it at a meetup and the reception was great! The only mild downer is that my time at Hack Reactor is now 2/3 finished and there are so many opportunities but so little time.
