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.
This week we had a two day make-up cycle in which we could work on whatever we wanted. I used it to make a prototype of a programmable robot fighting game! In the course of doing so, I got to do some more work with Backbone.js and CoffeeScript. It was a lot of fun, too! I plan to work on it some more when I have a chance and I'd love your feedback on it. Gameplay starts 4m20s into the video.
