Alumni Stories

DCI participants come from all corners of the globe and from all walks of life. They bring their unique perspectives, experiences, and professional backgrounds to the classroom. Discover how studying at DCI has helped to positively change their lives and their professional perspectives.

I studied Sociology, then Agricultural studies, but I left both universities. I guess now I just found the best combination of social, technical, and meaningful job ever. I would encourage all women out there to learn Web Development. This whole tech industry urgently needs the social spirit of women.

Adrienn T. Accessibility & Usability Expert at T-Systems Multimedia Solutions

My childhood dream of becoming a Developer was fulfilled by doing a course at DCI. Today I am backend developer at Blinkist and I couldn’t be happier.

Jose Backend Developer at Blinkist

The DCI is providing me the opportunity to learn from teachers who share their extended knowledge in marketing. It was one of the few institutions that has been able to deal with the COVID-19 situation, by going from offline classes to remote lessons without a drop in quality.

Luigia P. Online Marketing Specialist

I used to work in Gastronomy and as a Taxi driver so it was very exciting for me to learn everything from scratch to become a full-stack developer. The DCI has completely changed my life in a very good and bright way.
