Alumni Spotlight

Before I was hired my employer was excited to hear that I had lined up a course for web development as it aligned with their needs. After being hired I have been applying my training almost every day to introduce features that make for a more dynamic website, whether for our new one or for our existing one. I now have a better understanding of that world and can reference back to my valued experience I gained at the DWC.
