Introducing Xccelerate

on November 01, 2018

(下有中文版本)

As you may have noticed, we have a new look… again!

In March we had released this blog post introducing our new look and logo along with a brief update on the status of Xccelerate as you knew it.

We are here today to introduce the next evolution of our brand, from A to X.

A lot has happened since our first Full-Time Immersive Software Engineering Bootcamp in February 2017. We’ve educated over 500 students, provided bespoke training for enterprises of all sizes, expanded our course offerings, held dozens of interactive workshops and brought together amazing speakers and partners for massive panel events here in Hong Kong.

Amidst all of this, we’ve had to adapt to fast-paced change; adapt to the needs of our students, the need for new spaces to teach and operate, the need to create more engaging content and find more career opportunities for our graduates.

When we set out to build Xccelerate as it was, we knew there was an opportunity to change lives by helping Hong Kong overcome the impending skilled labor shortage. We knew 800 million jobs would be automated by 2030 and that there was a need for someone to step in and begin to address these issues. What we didn’t know was just how big this opportunity would be, so fast.

In order to accomodate a bigger vision, we have rebranded to Xccelerate.

Under Xccelerate we intend to double-down on our focus on addressing the tech talent shortage in Hong Kong, creating the best possible practical hands-on learning experience for career movers and improvers alike with a new campus experience to come as well as fresh curriculum updates and a well-rounded end to end experience.

The Xccelerate brand also provides us more flexibility when scaling as an organization. As much as we love the original name and brand, it’s not the easiest to trademark on a global scale!

So what changes can you expect in the short term? Here’s a quick breakdown:

-You’ll notice that our name and branding has completely changed. This will be reflected on all major channels moving forward, including our website domain -We’ll be sharing more about our new campus in the coming months -An expanded lineup of workshop offerings

We are all in when it comes time to building the best possible educational experience that we can. While we know that there will always be options when it comes to education, whether it means committing to post-graduate programs, self-study and online courses or traditional part-time learning platforms we believe that there is room for an accessible, community based experiential learning platform that makes upgrading your skills, and thus, your career more exciting than ever.

So what are you waiting for? It’s never too soon to upgrade your skills. Browse our upcoming courses now!


閣下可能已經發現,我們有著新的面貌…再一次!

在今年三月份我們已經發表過此遍文章,介紹我們的新面貌、新商標,並且伴隨一段簡短的介紹提及Xccelerate的最新狀況,相信對此大家經已有所了解。

我們在此向各位介紹公司的下一階段品牌進化、由A至X。

自從2017年2月舉辦過我們首次的全日制軟件工程訓練營之後,所發生的事情著實不少。例如迄今我們已經教導超過五百名學生、為不同架構的企業辦過講座、擴闊課程範圍、多次舉辦互動工作室、為多項平台項目引進多名頂尖講者以及伙伴來港。

有見及此,我們亦須因而作出改變,以配合現時社會的急速步伐,當中改變包括進一步針對學員所需、提供全新空間以作教學及營運、創作更多精彩內容、以致為學員就業提供更多協助等等。

當初創建Xccelerate之時,我們已經知道有著這樣的一個機會為香港就有關技術短缺的勞動市場帶來協助,因為我們知道至2030年時全球將會有著多達八億個相關職位空缺。當時未有預料的是這個機會究竟會有幾大,以及難以預計機會來得太快。

故此,為配合更廣闊的視野,我們將品牌重新打造成Xccelerate。

在Xccelerate底下焦點將會雙倍集中在香港有關技術的人才短缺、透過嶄新訓練營為在職者提供最為優良的學習體驗、亦就課程變更而令學員有著全方位的體驗。

Xccelerate這個品牌為我們作為組織提高更高的靈活性,雖然我們亦熱愛原有品牌,但以全球定位而言將會有所限制。

所以簡單而言閣下可以預期有甚麼變化?下列將一一枚舉:

閣下將會發現我們的名字及品牌完全變更,而這在我們的所有主要渠道將會一一呈現,當中包括網站域名 在未來數月我們將會進一步宣揚課程的有關資料 提供一系列更具範模的工作室

時機已至,我們將全力以赴傾盡所有去創作出最為優質的教學體驗,我們亦明白論及教學,它總會有著不同的選擇,不論是深造課程、自學、網上學習、抑或傳統的兼讀模式,我們都相信總會有著合適而又有群組支援的學習平台可以提升個人技巧,以致令到閣下前程更具挑戰性。

所以您還在等甚麼?提升個人技術總不會太早,敬請立即查看我們所提供的課程
