Top Student Reviews

  • My life is completely different to what it was before EXPLORE. I came from a business focused role. I had a desire to break into tech, more specifically Data Science and XPLORE’s program became the catalyst for that ambition to materialise. I went from knowing nothing about coding to now working in a role where I get to build and implement effective software solutions for some of the biggest organisations in SA.
