I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.



With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.



I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.



The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.

No prior programming or statistics experience is required for this curriculum.

Why should I learn programming?

We’re living in the age of technology. In every industry, demand for developers is high and continues to rise, yet there’s a shortage of skilled developers. As a result, there’s a huge number of exciting opportunities out there for developers who want to take them.

By mastering the skills taught in these courses, you’ll prepare yourself for roles in a wide range of industries. Whether you want to work in a startup or a Fortune 500 company, you’ll learn in-demand knowledge and techniques that will help you to succeed.

What will I achieve by taking these courses?

You’ll not only learn the most in-demand modern languages, frameworks, and tools, but also how to apply them to your own projects and real-world situations.

Additionally, as our courses are primarily project-based, as you learn you’ll develop a rock-solid professional portfolio that can be used to impress potential employers.

Technology changes quickly. What happens if the content becomes outdated?

We’re committed to providing you with the most up-to-date, relevant content. If one of our courses becomes outdated due to modern practices, we’ll update it. Often, we’ll even remake it entirely using the latest versions of the languages, tools and frameworks.

We’re committed to keeping up with cutting-edge developments in the industry, and turn this knowledge into new courses, which we publish every month.

I’m an absolute beginner who’s never coded before. Can I still do these courses?

Yes, you can! We have entry-level courses on all key topics, and each of our curriculums feature guided learning paths that show you what courses are needed to reach your goals.

Additionally, if you need a little extra help, we have expert mentors on hand to answer any course-related questions that you might have.

What time commitment is needed?

We get that you’re busy, and so we’ve designed our courses to be completely flexible, so you can learn at your own pace and fit your courses around your schedule.

While we recommend that you put in at least a few hours a week (the more hours put in, the more you’ll get out!) there are no time limits or deadlines that you need to worry about.

Will these courses help me to change my career?

Many of our students have been able to successfully change their careers, land their dream job, get promoted, and even start their own businesses… and you have the potential to do the same!

You can also combine your existing skills with your new tech skills, and expand your career, rather than changing it completely.

Our courses have been designed to teach you highly transferable skills, and leave you with strong projects that can be added to your professional portfolio – whatever you want to do, we’ll help to get you there!

Can I watch the videos offline?
