Only a few spots left for our app dev courses

It’s Spring and we’ve started to freshen things up a bit here at immedia headquarters. This month, we tidied up some of our apps, and also released versions for new ecosystems. We’re filling up the last few places for our October app dev training, so if you have that appy feeling, let us know and we’ll reserve your seat. As a student, you’re welcome to apply for bursaries, but remember: the criteria is stringent and the competition is fierce.

Digital design’s future


Our last round of training for the year is on the horizon, with just a few seats available and student bursary opportunities on offer. With October being the anniversary of our training initiative, we’re back on the road and spreading the app dev love around South Africa.

The objective of our training is to provide local developers with the skills and tools to infiltrate a booming market with credible and valuable knowledge. We aim to empower these individuals, paying particular attention to SA’s young, untapped talent in the hopes of allowing the world to take notice of what Africa has to offer.

Contact us to book your place. View the bursary criteria here.

An Awesome Graphic Showing The Collapse Of The Microsoft-Intel Monopoly – Harvard Business Review
14 September 2012

Unlike big, established corporations or what we might classify as a “steady job,” start-ups present more inherent risk because there are more variables and questions for a prospect to consider.

Nevertheless, this risk is often overlooked because start-up employee prospects realize that new ventures are more fun, are intellectually rewarding, and could have big paydays down the line.
