Backed by Facebook and Google, HyperionDev says that it is on a mission to provide accessible and affordable ways for students across the globe to learn job-ready, practical developer skills in months rather than years.

HLS's head honcho Adam Hunter says, "Tech education has the power to address socioeconomic barriers to career goals for thousands of South Africans. [While] on-campus learning has changed and business closures have driven growth in online learning and the use of technology, HyperionDev offers innovative ways of learning essential skills."

HLS says that its services to HyperionDev include strategic and tactical planning through content targeted to first-time varsity students and school-leavers.

This will be developed through a series of executive thought leadership pieces, news announcements and engaging webinars, while providing communications and branding support to both the marketing and advertising partners.

HyperionDev will join the agency's growing technology stable, which includes global brands such as;

  • SAP
  • Concur
  • Skynamo
  • RoomRaccoon, and
  • Mobiz.
"The pandemic has prompted the adoption of educational technology, contributing to a red-hot EdTech market that is reshaping not only how youth, but how all of us are learning. We look forward to working with a company that is making such a positive impact locally and worldwide," concludes Hunter.
