Our unorthodox ways, and a strong passion for what we do, seep into every unique digital experience we craft for technology, internet, mobile and social media. But passion can be a lonely soapbox. While our bold tactics speak loudly, Mikamai knows what customers crave is substance. By infusing our work with solid, innovative strategy, we truly inspire brand loyalty for our fashion, luxury, design, art, food & beverage and tourism clientele. Nowhere is our unconventional style more evident than our success with Ruby on Rails. Mikamai has a long history of taking web development in wonderful, unexpected directions.

University of Milan-Bicocca

The University of Milano-Bicocca was established on June 10, 1998, to serve students from Northern Italy and relieve some of the pressure on the over-crowded University of Milan. Groups of professors and researchers chose to come and participate in the enterprise. They were driven by their enthusiasm for the new, and by the chance to broaden academic horizons without having their work undermined by traditional methods of education. From the start, this very fertile climate became a unique training ground, which offered something new even in the most traditional disciplines.
