Opportunities in Tech

We've taught hundreds of people to design websites, create applications and start online businesses over the last five years. At Digital Intelligence, we love to teach coding and see our students change their lives with new skills and new possibilities for their lives.

There are so many opportunities in tech and it's not too late to take advantage of them.

In just 12 weeks, part time, you can become a confident coder, able to build an idea that comes to mind.

You don't need to be a genius or have a university degree. Anyone can do this — even you!

Will 2018 be your year?

Now is the time to take the plunge and just do it. You'll thank yourself later.


It doesn't matter if you haven't completed a computer science degree or tried coding before, anyone can learn to code. Perseverance and knowledgeable support are all that is needed — This course gives you exactly that.

If you've tried learning to code online and keep getting stuck, or haven't held yourself to practicing every week, this course will keep you accountable and give you the outcomes you are looking for.
