    One of the best decisions I've made.

    I purposely came to Miami from New York to attend Wyncode, and it has been a wonderful experience. As someone with zero coding experience, Wyncode's 9-week intensive was ideal for me. Bootcamps which were 3+ months long didn't appeal to me, as I didn't want to invest too much time to begin with. Nine weeks was sufficient to dip my toes, get a great foundation, and gauge whether I enjoyed coding (which I totally do). The content, weekly one-on-one’s, implementation of student feedback...

    The Truth About My Wyncode Experience

    Am I happy with my decision to attend Wyncode?

    Absolutely. I would definitely do it all over again. I have learned to read and write code in several languages. And also to think like a developer. More importantly, I learned how to teach myself to learn new technologies and programming languages. This is so important because this is a daily part of being a programmer. You will constantly have to solve problems and figure things out on your own - so get u...

    Complete BS

    Did a advanced level part-time course with them that is no longer offered.

    Really didn't learn much of anythning... the instructor spent so much time debugging his code and offering vague explanations that we were all very lost. Some were stuggling with simply getting things to work, some struggled to get a deeper understanding of the material because instructor can't answer questions. 

    Also terrible in following up ... we were told we would get a video tutorial on the ...

    Perfectly lays the foundation for success

    I went to Wyncode with no previous coding experience at all to pursue a carrer change. The enthusiam, 24/7 support and encouragement was more than I ever expected. All the support and guidence needed is easily available. You get out of it as much as you put into it!  The TA's and instructors are incredible. They are always (ALWAYS!) available morning, noon and night! The environment is motivatational, not comeptitive. The program is always evolving and  improving since the instructors are ...

    Best Decision of My LIfe

    Why did I do it?

    Before Wyncode, I was working at a small investment consulting firm. I was close to graduating college and I was considering taking the Series 65 to become an investment advisor. I had always had an interest in coding and over the years I had done bits and pieces of a few codecademy courses, but never could put it together to actually build something. I knew I really liked coding and the satisfaction of building something cool, so I quit my job, ...

    I had been looking all around Vancouver for a web development course for over a year, but I had a difficult time finding something that met all my requirements. BrainStation ended up meeting all my repirements: a schedule that easily fit into my busy life, was intensive enough to get value for the cost, and most importantly, I needed to work on projects that I could see myself using in the real world.

    Great Success!

    Wyncode was an amazing life changing experience! That’s what I tell very one when they ask me about Wyncode, because it true. I went to Wyncode not only to make a change in my life but to also start my career in technology. My previous work experience was in teaching; So my background had nothing to do with technology but it was something that always interested me since I was a kid and I got my first computer.

    Thumbs up from an arts student!

    Currently enrolled in the Intro to Web Development at BrainStation and am loving it. I have a content website and paid a hell of a lot of cash to have it designed and developed - I'm taking the course out of interest in expanding my skills, and so that I'm not having to pay someone to expand my site in the future.   

    As someone with a background in the arts, it can take me awhile to grasp the logical thinking required for coding, but the class has been excellent at giving me the...
