On one hand we have an industry facing a tremendous deficit, and on the other hand we have people whose jobs are being shut down, relocated or re-conversed. Why not offering them the opportunity of getting training in a prosperous field that is in great need of specialists?”, said Irina Dumitru, Wild Code School Bucharest manager.
