Programme overview

Officially launched in 2020, Psybergate’s Young Developer Programme (YDP) is aimed at the practical training and preparation of young people looking to build a career in software development.

The Young Developer Programme consists of 4-6 months of full-time mentorship, followed by 2 years of industry-based experience. It starts in July of each year and builds upon the academic knowledge acquired during tertiary studies.

During the initial 4-6 month mentoring period, participants are mentored by seasoned software developers. Our mentoring aims to instil key programming principles/concepts while growing core skills in Java and JEE/Spring. Extensive programming exercises and personal feedback help to prepare participants to build real-world solutions for real-world business problems.

Post the initial mentoring period, participants will be deployed to a client who will then have the option of taking them into permanent employment after their 2 years of industry experience.

“We offer not only a strong conceptual and practical foundation but also a chance to work with industry experts who are devoted to preparing you for the challenges you will face.”
