    Honest Review 2017

    Wyncode Academy is a very expensive very fast pace environment. Students will be bombarded with information.  The teachers and their TA's are good, but the mandatory homework is confusing if not difficult.  The students who excel at Wyncode are the type of students that should apply - former IT professionals, computer science graduates, and the people who live with them.  If you enter this Academy with no computer science background, then expect to hit a wall.  All students feel anxi...

    Hi Abe,
     
    We’re always looking to improve at Wyncode and we sincerely appreciate your feedback. Our doors are always open for Wyncode graduates still searching for jobs after the program. We would be happy to help you get the outcomes you’re looking for. Hopefully, you can get in touch with our Director of Hiring Partnerships and take part in an upcoming Wynwork session!
     
    The full-time program is made with beginners in mind. The majority of our students had little to no prior coding experience before enrolling. Some of our biggest success stories have come from those with zero prior experience in the field.
     
    Nonetheless, the program is very intensive. But there are resources every step of the way, including in-person and remote support, ample documentation and videos, and weekly 1-on-1 checkins to gauge student progress. Additionally, with our new 5x5 format, we will recommend that a student repeat the first five weeks of the program, at no extra cost, if we feel it would be beneficial. Due to our overlapping cohort schedule, students held back this way can immediately join the subsequent cohort. At Wyncode, we make sure anyone willing to complete the course crosses the finish line.
     
    Although the web immersive course is a significant time and financial commitment, it’s worth it. We’ve seen tremendous results for graduates of our program. To date, we’ve helped at least one Wyncoder get hired at over 200 companies. And over 50 companies have hired more than one. And we credit these results not only to a curriculum informed by hiring partner needs, but also to the continuous, honest feedback we get from students like you - feedback that helps us create the best possible Wyncode experience.
     
    You don’t have to take our word for it. In our most recently released placement outcomes, 97% of job-seeking graduates in 2014-2015 were placed within six months. You’ll also find within our jobs report a breakdown of how many were able to find roles every month between one and five months after the program. These outcomes were audited by an independent third party, the accounting firm MBAF, and verified for accuracy. We’ve seen similar stats for 2016 and we’re excited to release our updated data within the next few months. 
     
    Finally, if any potential student would like to hear from former students, we have several team members who went through the full-time program as well as fully employed Wyncode alumni who would be happy to speak to their experiences. If you look at the many reviews on this page, many individuals have left their names, and their experiences can be cross-referenced via LinkedIn or GitHub. We’re happy to provide all the data we can to allow a prospective student to make an informed decision about learning with us.
     
    Best,

    Both courses were overall great. The instructors were from applicable industry groups and were often dealing with the day to day activities that would come up in the course material.

    The layout for both structures are organized and easy to follow. It is easy to catch up of you miss a class or two.

    Product Management Course Review

    - The Product Management course was great. The Instructors had a ton of real-world experience to draw from and were able to distill something as confusing as product management, into an understandable body of knowledge.
    - Good use of diagrams and models to explain points.

    User Experience Design Review

    I took the UX Design course this past semester. As someone that's worked in the tech industry for a few years (but never in UX), I found this course helpful in learning the theory on why websites and apps look and function the way they do. I had no background knowledge coming into the class, and found the content easy to digest and understand. Every class comes with an "educator" as well as a teaching assistant, which helps when trying to hear different views (on the same topic) from wor...

    Great Experience

    I first enrolled into Wyncode because I wanted to change my career. I had some exposure to coding lessons in college but never took it seriously.
