GradHacker was created by Alex Galarza and myself as a way to provide graduate students with an online and in-person community for improving graduate education. The project began as a series of day-long bootcamps, and has evolved into an online blog and podcast series. GradHacker is now part of InsideHigherEd, and has graduate student authors from around the world and in a range of disciplines. GradHacker content receives 30,000 to 60,000 unique views every month. I continue my role in GradHacker as a co-editor and also lead bootcamps twice a month to help graduate students develop digital skills.
