Testimonials from our learners

Konexio is a story of human connection, social impact, and solidarity

After taking part in the Déclics Numériques program, Jérôme joined DigiStart in November 2022 with the aim of changing careers and discovering the world of code. For him, this training, although not leading to a diploma, is an asset on his CV and a valuable immersion in the digital field. In January 2023, he began training to become a digital mediator, a position he now holds in a social center. Even though coding is not at the heart of his job, he runs workshops on discovering code, thanks to the knowledge he acquired at Konexio.His advice? "Even if you're unsure, any training is good to take - it opens doors!"

Thanks to Konexio, I was able to graduate as a Web and Mobile Developer." Dechen has been an intern front-end developer at Lenbox since January 2023.
