     Where do I start as the list of negatives are basically endless. I really wish I had seen the HelloPeter reviews before deciding to spend R20 000 on a course that doesn't offer you anything near what they promise. This is meant to be a modern, tech, educational platform that is forward thinking, but I can promise you it’s just like any other old school company. Theres nothing revolutionary in the way they teach, mark your work, provide your tasks… It's basically a drop box folder and are code isn't reviewed line by line, you just get overall feedback. 

    The course has massive holes in it (full-stack web development), and you basically just end up running a bunch of free courses in parallel to try and get you over the line, which makes you think what the point is of spending R20 000 on a mentored course that does nothing of the type. You get a PDF outlining what you need to do which suffices at first (to make sure you get past the refund clause in their policy wording), but as you move on you may as well just skip to the tasks and research those online. I had to get the developers in my current company to help me out and due to learning everything online from multiple sources, the way I write code isn't good practice. This leads me to my next point…

    There are way too many students for the mentors available and there is no personal touch of them knowing where you are, and what they should teach you because of this. Sometimes it takes over two weeks to get a session and by that time your ripping your hair out as your 5 tasks behind and need another 4 sessions. I work a full-time job and getting sessions after hours is a nightmare. The one thing they are good at is selling you the course, I was promised this would be a breeze outside of my 9 - 5 job and that they are specialists in this. Don't even think about this course if your working, but I wouldn't recommend it if your not either. My tutor really tried to help me out after hours but was always exhausted or had to cancel sessions at the last minute. I put aside weekends for this only to be cancelled on last second and then to spend the rest of the weekend just stressing about how to finish the tasks by myself.

    The customer support operates at a snails pace, to get anything sorted takes days to a month. I complained and eventually got a small refund which took over a month, still not happy with the outcome.

    My advise, keep your hard earned money and grab courses online, as you learn way more from free websites than spending a huge amount of HyperionDev.

    They will not "Kickstart your career in tech".

    Where to begin, I sold my car to pay for this course, and what I received in return was an out-dated course, basically zero career support, a half baked hiring platform with no opportunities for the average graduate, most job postings on their connect platform ask for years of experience.

    As for the certificate, it has no recognition in the industry and if an employer looks at the certificate all they will see is a certificate of completion, you can get the same thing from an R200 Udemy course.

    Furthermore, the Mentors have to look after way too many students and are frequently swamped. And the one time I needed help from my mentor he told me he didn't have experience in the topic I was stuck on.

    Everything you find in the course material can be sourced for free online and through youtube tutorials.

    I have found myself a job based on past experience and I have asked multiple companies if they have heard of HyperionDev...not even one has said yes.

    Don't waste your money, time, or effort on this scam.

    This course has been amazing. Due to finances I was not able to join, but HyperionDev Team helped me get in. The course content teaches you what you need to know. You may need to go do research to find out more. That is where you have the discord channel where you can ask any questions and people in the course can assist you. The few times I have needed support assistance, my issues were resolved within a few hours. My mentor marks very well. All the comments and tips on how to improve really help. I have learnt much while on this course, specifically on how to make comments correctly :D. If you know nothing or very little about programming and want to learn more, this course can do that for you.

    Pros:
    • Course content suitable for beginners
    • Mentors provide improvement tips
    • You can retry your task if you do not meet the requirement of 70%
    • You have access to a discord channel where you can ask many questions
    • Support team responds quickly
    • Access to HyperionDev Careers
    Cons:
    • After a lesson, you may need to do some more research to fully grasp the concepts (finding examples etc)
    • You can only submit 3 tasks a day and have to wait 24 hours before you can submit again (prevent mentors being swarmed)
    • Discord help may take long depending on people's availability
    • If you are more advanced in programming, Part 2/3 is where the fun starts
    • No job guarantee

    It has been my dream to become a software engineer, however plans did not go as anticipated and I found myself in the built environment profession. Learning about HyperionDev and how they have produced successfully aspiring software engineers regardless of their educational background, skill level and age, revived my hopes once more that I am not too late as well to pursue the dream. The curriculum has been in an easy-to-grasp format alongside with extra helpful mentors. I have not only gained the skills sets in Python and Java programming so far, but a new way of thinking logically and effective approaches to problem-solving as well. If only I had known earlier about HyperionDev and their flexible and convenient way of producing software engineers I would’ve been a top engineer by now. Nonetheless, I cannot wait to graduate in July and dive in the real world of software engineering and so reach my desired haven.

    I enrolled in HyperionDev's online Full Stack Web Developer Bootcamp, at the start of March 2020, and it has been amazing so far. The course content is clear and concise and easy for anyone to understand, no matter how much or little coding knowledge they have. Besides the actual course content, multiple external links are provided to point you in the right direction when it comes to researching a topic or wanting to learn more, as well resources/learning material provided for further reading. One thing I think a lot of people learning to code struggle with is structure and where to start and and this bootcamp offered a much needed solution to this problem to help one advance their learning as there is a clear path or direction that needs to be followed. The tasks that are given is the perfect opportunity to test what you have learnt. The tasks get progressively more difficult as you move through the course and they do become more labour intensive but they are great in that they aim to really get you to show that you understand and are able to apply the knowledge that you have learnt. If you ever get stuck, you have your own mentor to assist. Besides that, HyperionDev has multiple communities and forums that all mentors, educators and students are apart of, you can speak to and work with people who are doing the same bootcamp and tasks as you are. Overall, I have had a great experience so far and highly recommend HyperionDev!

    Hi there.

    Honestly all you need to do is take the risk that will change your life and with HyperionDev, I have decided to take a career based on Web development  and trust me the beginning is that easy. There are a lot of things in which you will need to complete a course with them: 

    • Dedication
    • Time
    • The ability to learn new things
    • Learning from your mistakes
    • Asking for help 
    • Failing forward

    Best regards

    The data science course involves intro to python, python for data science, data analytics & exploration and Machine learning & AI.
     
    Pros
     The course content is well delivered and was a welcome surprise. I had thought this was a lite introductory course but actually gives enough content to get you job ready which is a huge plus. I am using techniques learned in this course in my role already especially on the data analytic & exploration level. The transition from beginner to intermediate programmer is just seamless. I can now add, remove & explore libraries which were pretty intimidating. Course instructors are always available to help you and I loved how the feedback was continuous and specific.
     
    Cons
    I know this is a bootcamp and information cannot be presented like a normal degree course but I think a slight improvement on the curriculum is needed.
    Things get pretty daunting when it comes to level 3: Machine learning level.  That is where the seamlessness pretty much ends and things get really tough. I felt there needs to be an intro to statistics course or “statistics for machine learning” before you get your hands dirty. While intro to programming and ‘python for data science’ eases you in to the workload which makes data exploration an interesting level, machine learning is a mind adjustment without any sort of pre-prep, so to speak.
    Neuro Networks are in essence the crux of what you need to learn in level 3 but I felt didn’t get the platform it deserves to get you stuck in and I wanted to know more and learn more. I came out of level 3 feeling like we can sacrifice some level 1 tasks to give Neuro Networks some more room.
     
    I also think students can benefit from a task or two on reading different library docs. These help A LOT in understanding libraries.
     
    Overall, this is an incredible course and beats the data analysis course from get-smarter through UCT by a long mile. If you want something that would take you off spreadsheets and catapult you to using programming to solve data science problems, this is definitely the course for you.

    My experience doing the software engineering bootcamp with HyperionDev was great they have this amazing support structure and you are able to book online calls with you're mentor that will help you if you stuck or not understanding certain parts. The work content is nice and challenging and doing this course improved my problem solving skills and self discipline. The mentors break the work down very well when you lost and they are always there to support and keep you motivated I would highly recommend HyperionDev to all.

    My experience at HyperionDev has been absolutely amazing. I am an online student at HyperionDev and I have chosen the software development course. I started as a complete beginner with no knowledge of programming. HyperionDev explains the work to you through the lectures, then provides tasks for you to do. The instructions of the task further explain the content and are clear on what you must do. Once you are done, you submit your work to your personal mentor. He/She reviews your work and helps you with any mistakes that you have made. The mentors are patient with you, they certainly have been with me. Overall HyperionDev has helped me progress with ease. I would recommend it.

    I am really enjoying this bootcamp so far. The mentors are there to help. The daily tasks are pushing me to get better.

    One thing that needs to be improved is the system for booking time with mentors. 

    Right now, it is disorganised in that respect. 

    The only way to ask a question is to keep going to them, and I am never sure if it is a good time.

Thanks!
