“It turns out that what is learned is really useful, like for example Framework, react framework, that react one of front framework end that is most used today. continue from backend We also teach nodeJS, for the mobile itself, we also get it from Purwadhika,” he explained.
“Until finally I entered the process of looking for work again, where this time I managed to get a job that matched my needs.” skills I, armed with Purwadhika, and of course with confidence.” said Vincent
