Our mission

To close the global tech skills gap through affordable and personalised learning programs that offer an alternative to traditional computer science degrees.

About HyperionDev

HyperionDev is a leading tech education company founded in 2012.

We exist with one goal: to help people get the skills they need to make a start in the growing tech industry. We do this through our specialised mentored coding bootcamps, which can be completed online or on-site at our campuses in Johannesburg and Cape Town. HyperionDev's content and curriculum has been developed in partnership with top-level, industry-relevant international organisations including Google, Facebook and Cambridge. No confusing theory, just up-to-date practical skills that you’ll need in your new tech career.

Currently the largest tech education provider in Southern Africa, HyperionDev is backed by both Facebook and Google, and has already supported and successfully placed learners from over 40 countries in developer roles. HyperionDev’s efforts to bring tech skills to those without reliable internet access won it the 2016 Facebook Innovation Challenge Award.
