Special Partner Discount for Silicon Cape Community Members


HyperionDev is very pleased to announce a partnership with Silicon Cape, a non-profit company committed to building and catalysing the technology ecosystem in the Western Cape.


HyperionDev will provide access to their mentor-led, industry-relevant online coding bootcamps in Full Stack Web DevelopmentMobile Development and Software Engineering to Silicon Cape community members. The EdTech company also offers a host of three-month short courses in a variety of computer languages including Python and Java. 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.


Silicon Cape has grown to over 10 000 individual members, representing over 500 organisations with close ties with other professional bodies such as Wesgro, CITI an Global Entrepreneurship, the government of the Western Cape and the City of Cape Town.


To celebrate this partnership, HyperionDev is giving a 15% discount on any of their courses by using promo code SILICON. Valid from 1 November 2017 until  31st January 2018.
