— Kibirt Bayou I ክብርት ባዩ, Ethiopia
"ALX is the toughest and most exciting training experience I've ever had in my life; I have gained valuable technical skills that I plan to apply to entrepreneurial projects, aligning with my own interests in mobile development, e-commerce, and fintech."
— Helina Abye | ሕሊና አብይ, Ethiopia
"As a student in the ALX Software Engineering Program, I had the opportunity to learn from my peers, was given a formal structure, and was able to acquire the skills I needed to advance in my career and my passion for software engineering."
— Leykun Gizaweh | ለይኩን ግዛው, Ethiopia
"My desire to learn software engineering has always been strong. I started out by learning on my own, and a while later a relative of mine sent me a link to ALX. I visited the website and found Fred Swaniker's video where he discussed his ambitions. That gave me the push I needed to apply, and it turned out to be the best decision I have ever made."
— Kalkidan Berta | ቃልኪዳን በርታ, Ethiopia
"I studied Computer Science in college, and there wasn’t much time in between learning the modules and being tested on them. What I love about ALX is that we are given several tasks to practise and apply the modules. Anyone can apply to the Software Engineering programme. Seventy hours a week may seem like a lot, but while you’re doing the projects, time flies by. If you’re someone who likes solving problems, then this is a fun programme to be in, and I highly recommend it!"
