Our mission

To close the global tech skills gap by enabling education that is an accessible alternative to traditional university degrees.

About HyperionDev

HyperionDev is southern Africa’s largest tech education provider. It was founded in 2012, as a small grassroots movement of Computer Science students working towards a single goal: to build and deliver better technical education for anyone who wanted to learn digital literacy and programming skills.

Today, that small team has expanded to two physical campuses and a large online education platform to offer an accessible alternative to the expensive and time-consuming traditional learning models, which many South Africans simply can’t afford. HyperionDev teaches code using an accessible learning structure, so that anyone can learn to code without expensive laptops or high-speed internet connections. This is paired with a unique mentored approach, where students are assigned their own mentors who will help them throughout their coding journey.

However, while most learning institutions stop their support at graduation, HyperionDev continues its support, with a dedicated external jobs platform and a committed placements and career services division that aims to connect entry-level coding graduates with the jobs they’ve been dreaming of. Today, HyperionDev has brought coding skills to thousands of students in more than 40 different countries. Through our commitment to quality jobs placements and student support, we hope to continue expanding and diversifying the talent tech pools for jobs in South Africa.
