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.”

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.”

Kat Kolomycew

Junior Web Developer

“There have been only a few times where I could say that I felt like I was exactly where I was supposed to be in a given moment of my life, and this is one of them. The challenge is on, the people are awesome, and the atmosphere is fun.”

Clara Fitzgerald

Junior Software Developer

“Although I was torn between _nology and a Masters, after just 4 weeks I’m sure I made the right decision.”

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.”

Adam Kovacs

Junior Web Developer

“Nology is not just a big stepping stone in tech but also gives me the opportunity to meet new people and encourages a group dynamic that is supportive. Also, being able to recognize small wins every day in challenges, helps me acknowledge that I’m improving as a developer.”
