FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)
What qualifications are needed to join Hack School?
What's your weekly schedule?
I can't make that schedule, but can I still follow along?
Will we be with partners or in teams?
What kind of learning atmosphere can I expect?
Example of a good interaction:
A: “Great, thank you!”
B: “You’re very welcome!”
A: “Also, FYI, it looks like you’re about to run out of battery on your laptop. If that happens often, I’ve found that Safari is much nicer than Chrome on battery life.”
B: “Whoa, that’s a big help, thank you!”
Persons A and B are helping each other out kindly. This is the culture we want and will actively work to maintain.
Example of a bad interaction (based on an actual one, sadly):
A: “Why are you on Pinterest?”
B: “Oh, I’m finding a gift for my dad, and Pinterest’s design is also an inspiration for some ideas I have for the chat app—”
A: “That’s such a girly interest to have. See, in my spare time, I learn more about circuits and radio designs. What are you doing in EE?”
Person A above would get kicked out of Hack School very quickly (and actually ended up switching out of EE).
Person B ended up doing very well in EE and beyond.
