Hello World

Welcome to BuildHack and our new blog

  • NPE

Hi everyone and welcome to BuildHack. In addition to our courses to help you learn how to code, we also have a new blog to go over other things to help you start a career as a software engineer. Some things that we'll be covering in the blog are what kind of jobs can you get, what should your LinkedIn/resume include to help your chances of being noticed, how to prepare for an interview and how to negotiate and pick the right job. In addition to helping you as you look for a job, we'll also discuss topics that are relevant to the industry and you should be aware of.

And in case you're curious why the title of this first blog post is "Hello World", it's a throwback to early CS101 courses where one of the first things they teach you is how to write a program that prints "Hello World". I don't know if courses these days still do the same, but back when I was in school (and dinosaurs roamed) this was one of the first things we learned. Nothing technically relevant or useful, but a fun fact to know.
