D11Code Open House: DyCode 11th Anniversary

By | DyCoders, Events, Inside DyCode

Years gone by, and suddenly it’s been 11 years since the first day DyCode established. We have undergone various transformations and changes. Starting from a small team in a narrow office, until now DyCode already has 30 people as Dycoders and settled in a new, larger DyPlex.

To celebrate the 11th anniversary, this year DyCode invited friends, colleagues and clients from tech startups and companies in Bandung to attend DyCode open house event. This event is also a housewarming to inaugurate the new DyPlex, where DyCode and its subsidiaries (DycodeEdu and DycodeX) now reside.

Located in DyPlex’s backyard, on May 15th 2018 we gathered with the guests to enjoy the food and beverages served from afternoon to evening. We were very grateful for the presence of our investors, colleagues, and also the clients who took the time to attend this small party.

Happy 11th anniversary, DyCode forever!

#D11Code: DyCode Outing Day!

By | DyCoders, Events, Inside DyCode

The movement of the IT world is getting more dynamic everyday. In any part of the world, tech companies – especially startups, continue to struggle, make changes, create new things. The requirement of every tech worker’s creativity becomes higher, in line with the market demands. It is how these companies can survive: relying on the creativity and persistence of every employee.

As described in the HR In Asia article on the importance of team outing in recharging human energy, creativity and motivation, DyCode recognizes the importance of togetherness and cohesiveness in our own team. That’s why we held DyCode Outing Day on Wednesday, May 9, 2018. Coinciding with DyCode’s 11th anniversary, we decided to celebrate today by having fun with the entire DyCode crew – including DycodeX and DycodeEdu.

The company outing day event is actually an annual event organized by DyCode as a refreshment and to bond the whole team. This year we decided to have fun at Wisata Grafika Cikole, Lembang, in northern Bandung. Cikole is a famous mountain forest area at the foot of Mount Tangkuban Perahu, with a cool natural air and not so far from downtown Bandung. It only took us about an hour and a half driving to get there from DyPlex. We were greeted with an Outbound team that will guide us during outbound and team-building sessions.

The various team-building games were very interesting and followed by the entire crew of DyCode with great enthusiasm. Divided into groups, each group were eager to complete the challenges with full concentration and teamwork, along with endless laughters. Unbeknownst to us, these games have cultivated a sense of togetherness and strengthened the sense of familiarity between DyCode crew.

DyCode outing event that day was wrapped with dinner and sharing session at Natural Strawberry Restaurant, still in Lembang area, not far from Cikole. The DyCode crew had prepared several ideas to enliven the so-called talent shows, such as the drama skits and stand-up comedy. We also exchanged gifts to one another, and got surprised with the creativity of the gift ideas.

At the end of the show, our CEO Andri Yadi and COO Gina Rizka made announcements about Rookie and Best Employee Of The Year from DyCode and DycodeX. For DyCode, Rookie of The Year went to Faisal Haris from HR department. While from DycodeX, Rookie of The Year went to Indra Ginanjar, the IoT Engineer. As for Employee of The Year from DyCode was held by Ari Fajrianda ‘Ryan’ Alfi the Project Manager, while DycodeX Employee Of The Year is Alwin Arrasyid, our Lead Programmer. All of them are entitled to hold the trophy and special gift from the company. Congratulations, guys!

Birthday celebrations will not be complete without a candle blowing event and a piece of cake. We all wishing all the best for DyCode in this year 11th years and many years to come. happy anniversary DyCode!

IT Education For Indonesia

By | Food for thought

The world of education knows no bounds. This is what keeps us at Dycode having the initiative to take part in education in the field we capable of, information technology. In this era where technology is growing so fast, IT becomes one of the important parts that can not be separated from everyday life. This is what needs to be studied further, especially by future generations.

For IT education, we are focusing on our expertise area, which is the web and mobile applications. We strive to provide materials on the industry-wide web and mobile app to the public. Through DycodeEdu, we are able to reach both young tech enthusiasts into app programming, and also can provide training to corporates who need to master the IT development.

Further education about app development is necessary because sometimes the materials obtained by the fresh graduates may not compatible to be applied directly into the industry. As for corporations, a deeper knowledge on specific programming will give advanced skill for some divisions to handle the IT problems in the company.

Therefore, in order to boost the development of IT industry in the world, especially in Indonesia, we need to jump directly in IT education in this country. With our several bootcamp classes, as well as corporate trainings by our qualified trainers, we can at least contribute to advancing Indonesian education through IT.

Happy National Education Day, Indonesia!
