    Hey, Kevin! I think CJ or Nathan can probably get you a master list at least for my cohort. At the very least, I can tell you a couple from my class:

    Gavin –
    Andreas –

    Oh, and to me I’ve always thought of myself as in the April ’13 cohort since that’s when I graduated! It was a cool talk at the ML group a few days ago :)

    Thanks for the links Mark. I missed the ML group the other day because I was wrapped up in the Backbone blackjack project. I would love to talk to you about your Robo Duel game sometime.

    Hi Kevin do you think I have to learn Node before applying to hack reactor? I come from a non-programming background. So far all I’ve done is build a simple quiz app with Backbone and RequireJs, jquery, javascript, html, css. Would they hold it against me if I barely know the command line? Since they choose the best candidates, I’m afraid that might put me at a disadvantage. So do you think I should learn Node or just brush up on my javascript concepts? Did most of the people in your cohort have experience with node/command line/backend stuff? Thank you in advance!
