HyperionDev in Partnership with UKZN Extended Learning (UEL)

Posted by

HyperionDev is delighted to announce a partnership with UKZN Extended Learning (UEL). HyperionDev will provide access to their mentor-led, industry-relevant online coding bootcamps in Full Stack Web Development, Mobile Development and Software Engineering. The EdTech company also offers a host of three-month short courses in a variety of computer languages. All the courses offer access to quality content and on-demand code review by an expert. Personalised mentorship means that you won’t feel stuck and your code will be reviewed for accuracy, style and efficiency.


Riaz Moola, Hyperion’s co-Founder and CEO, says about online bootcamps: ‘Often a student is unable to get ahead when stuck on a learning wall. Rereading the same passages endlessly or repeatedly watching the same videos won’t let the student overcome the learning block. But an expert mentor will give valuable feedback swiftly, helping the student.’


Hyperion launched in Durban in 2012, and is part of Google’s international project to improve computer science and training. ‘We have close ties with the Google Africa team,’ says Moola. Besides Google, HyperionDev was also won the Innovation Challenge Award from Facebook, making it the first South African startup financially backed and supported by both Facebook & Google.

Simon Tankard, UEL’s CEO notes the importance of technology for fast tracking the SA economy. He says: “Technology is the single most powerful resource to enable us to leapfrog the experience curve and to help fast track the development of our people and grow the economy in South Africa. We look forward to building the partnership with Hyperion and to supporting expertise development in Africa”.

To celebrate this union, HyperionDev is giving a 15% discount on any of their courses by using promo code UKZN.


Valid from 1 November 2017 until 31st January 2018.
