codeX is a new program focused on breeding highly skilled software developers to fuel Africa's technology ecosystem. We aim to be the fastest, cheapest, most powerful way to groom and recruit new talent.
Developers are in very high demand and very short supply, and yet we have so many young talented brains out there who just don't get the training they need to get these creative, demanding, and high-paying jobs. Growing African tech companies shouldn't need to outsource their development work to other continents. codeX finds the best talent and helps them develop technical, operational, and business skills they need to keep those jobs here.
We teach software and hardware development by having coders work with real companies on real projects right from the beginning. We are highly focused on agile development philosophy, so the students learn not just technical skills and computer languages but how to think about building the best product for the market in the most efficient, most collaborative way.
Companies sponsor a majority of the cost per developer seat, but coders are also required to pay a small percentage (it will depend based on need).
We are looking for great partners to sponsor seats, equipment, and events, as well as commission software projects and mentor our coders. Partner with us and get first crack at the hottest new dev talent on the continent!
