Larisa Manciu Quote


Software Engineer in Linz

"From the first time I heard about the Academy, I knew it was exactly what I needed. Eight months in which I could shape my existing technical skills, gain new knowledge, learn about Dynatrace Platform, workflow, culture, and get an insight about my career development plus find the path which will suit me best."

Leon Schiesswald Quote


Software Engineer in Hagenberg

"I really like the hands-on approach where you can try everything out yourself and don’t get drowned in theory. Nobody expects you to know certain tools and you can ask about literally anything without worrying about judgement."
