About ALPHA Camp

A brief history

ALPHA Camp (AC) was founded with the mission to help people develop meaningful and rewarding careers in the new economy. We teach people the skills and mindset that will not only help them stay relevant, but succeed in this age of technological acceleration.

We launched our first seminar in Taiwan in 2013, and later expanded to Singapore in 2016, partnering with Singapore’s government to help its citizens develop careers in technology. Since then we have trained over 4,000 individuals, and our Bootcamp has graduated over 300 alumni who are working as software developers, designers, and digital marketers in MNCs and various startups across Asia.

Today, we offer a diverse portfolio of training programs for both consumers (2C) and corporates (2B) in Taiwan and Singapore.

Combining data, technology, and community

There are four reasons we decided to move our program online:

  1. To help more people by allowing them to learn online, anywhere, and at their own pace
  2. To ensure consistency in delivering our course content via videos, graphs, and text
  3. To gather in-depth learning data from a large set of students so we can optimise and improve our content and course design
  4. To harness the power of social discussions, gamification, personalised learning, and other potential techniques and technology to improve engagements and learning effectiveness

While we believe technology will help us to substantially improve both the experience and the effectiveness of our courses, we also understand that there elements that make learning in an offline classroom effective. One of these key elements is the trust and sense of community built via personal interactions.  As such, we try to include personal elements in our training programs to ensure a sense of community is built among our students.

What to do next:

If you are interested or would like to know more please email (Subject: Translator) by September 30 and we will send you a translation assessment. This assessment will help both parties see what can be expected and whether or not we’d like to continue the process.
