Aleo Yakas

Junior Software Developer

“_nology has already helped me develop my tech skills in the four weeks I've been here. The course does an amazing job in consistently introducing new topics in simple and manageable chunks while still remaining enjoyably challenging.”

Matthew Bickell

Junior Software Trainer

“I decided to take the _nology course to develop a new skill-set, and while I had my reservations before the course began, in just these four short weeks I've learned so much. Everyone from trainers to course mates have been nothing but helpful in ensuring we all get the most out of our time here.”

Dan Jones

Junior Web Developer

“The course has been challenging so far, but in a positive, growth way! We are only 4 weeks in and already I can feel a complete shift in mindset starting to occur. You have to be patient, but slowly you start to see the little wins, reinforcing that you are making progress somewhere. Although I enjoy most aspects of the course, the stand out aspect, for me, has to be the quality of training. Liam truly creates an environment where failure is encouraged and learnt from, giving you the time and opportunity to explore, ultimately building confidence in your ability.”

Sam Buckley

Junior Software Engineer

“After I left school I found myself heading in a direction I wasn't happy with. When I heard about _nology I thought it would be a great opportunity to change that.”

Alex Mills

“Learning to code is challenging, but the rewards are worth it. I am enjoying the challenge and can’t wait to see what else there is to learn.”
