The Recurse Center is a three-month, full-time school in New York for becoming a better programer. It is free and provides space, structure, time to focus, and a built-in community of smart builders dedicated to self-improvement. The Recurse Center is entirely project-based and self-directed. Paticipants are expected to start with at least a general programming proficiency as everyone in the program is a teacher and has something to share with their peers. Applicants should genuinely enjoy programming, and they are looking for curiosity, passion, raw intelligence and a desire to build things.

- Hacker School is Incredible- 1/24/2015Anonymous • Course: Summer Batch • Campus: New York City
Hacker School isn't a bootcamp. It's more like a retreat. There are no instructors. Rather, everybody can work on whatever they want, which often leads to working with other people, where you both learn an incredible amount from other people, and end up teaching others what you know. There's a wide variety of peple in the community, so you can always find people who are excited about the things you are, or people to help you get started learning something new.
