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.

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.

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.

Java is a programming language that is beneficial for both beginners and experienced Developers, offering many opportunities for career growth. Here are a few of its advantages:


  • Platform independence: Java’s “write once, run anywhere” capability allows code to run on various platforms, enhancing its flexibility.
  • Robustness: With strict typing and automatic garbage collection, Java minimises errors and improves application stability.
  • Versatility: Java caters to a wide spectrum of applications, from mobile apps to enterprise-level systems.

Community support: A large community and resources provide support, many libraries, and frameworks.

Generally, Java is considered a relatively accessible language for beginners due to its clear syntax and structures. Java’s object-oriented nature might seem complex at first, but with practice and expert guidance it becomes easier to understand. 

No prior knowledge is required to participate in our course. If you speak German or English (certified minimum level B1) and have an interest in learning Java, you are more than welcome to attend!
