“During the ALX Software Engineering programme, I was exposed to a more holistic approach to software development and learned about the importance of collaboration, communication, and project management in building successful software applications.”

“I have managed to overcome major challenges through the course of the Software Engineering programme. It has helped me realise that you can never completely learn something in tech; it is a never-ending journey. But I love to learn, so I’m ready for everything out there.

“Twelve years ago, when I had just finished my college degree, all I wanted to do was become a Software Engineer. One day, I found this amazing programme at ALX, and I am having the best time of my life studying Software Engineering. I can’t begin to imagine what joy I will have when I start using my knowledge to solve real life problems.”

What stood out the most to me in ALX’s SE programme was the fast paced and highly comprehensive curriculum. I also enjoyed the focus on developing skills relevant for today’s tech industry, and how the programme grooms you to be able to solve complex, real world problems.

The ALX SE programme is significantly practical, especially when compared to similar courses at the university level. I especially enjoyed the encouragement we received to research and figure things out on our own.”

“ALX helped me unlock my true potential and start to believe in myself. Through the experience, I was able to grow my skill set and identify my definition of success. It helped me to remember who I am and what I stand for. As a result, my outlook on life changed and I became inspired to recognise the contribution I could make as a young person.”

“I completed the Cloud Computing programme at ALX. One of the highlights for me was the third project we were asked to work on. It was particularly tough, and I had to rely on support from the programme community on Slack. Thankfully, we were able to get through it together as a team.”

“ALX goes beyond technical training – it supports a journey to go deep into your personality and provides powerful opportunities to build yourself. The learning atmosphere is great and it goes beyond just focusing on the end product.”
