    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...

    A breath of fresh air compared to post-secondary

    I've been taking the Digital Marketing course at BrainStation for the past few months and I love it! I have a marketing degree but needed to get a refresher on some of the digital components of my degree. BrainStation was the perfect choice for me. The classes are relaxed and fun, but in-depth and relevant. The instructors are hip and are all working in the industry. I highly recommend BrainStation.

    Awesome Experience

    Choosing Wyncode was a great decision for me. Being in my early 20's I was going to school and working part-time and was just tired of waiting to finish. I decided to enroll at the Fort Lauderdale location for their 4th cohort. 

    The curriculum was well structured and is continuously improving. You dive into code, learn as much as you can, you cant expect to learn everything, but you will learn what is necessary to get started and begin your career.

    Best UX Design Course

    I took the UX Design 12 weeks bootcamp in October 2015. It was one of the best investments I've made. The instructors are very knowledgeable and they are always there to help you.

    One of the aspects that I liked the most about the course is that you get the chance to apply all the lessons you learn during the class into a project on your choice. The information I received has given me tremendous value, and contributed in helping me to build my own business.

    Phenomenal Learning Experience

    Learning technology skills such as mobile development, web design, and coding was the main motivation of submerging myself into this program. It was not an easy choice since there are a ton of coding boot camps out there with great reviews. However, Wyncode offered what I was looking for: majestic curriculum, outstanding classmates, incredible job placement rates, unlimited teaching assistance, and prolific instructors. You can not go wrong with this program. I traveled all the way from Ho...

    I had very few doubts initially that Wyncode would be a good experience. At first, my toughest decision was which campus to go to. In the end I chose to attend the Ft Lauderdale cohort. It ended up being an awesome experience. My instructor at the time, Auston, is superb and really shows a passion for teaching. I think that if anyone is looking for this type of career change, this is the way to do it. Immerse yourself in a program like this, and you will realize that this is th...

    Events, Workshops & Course A++

    I’ve attended multiple events, the SEO workshop, I’m currently enrolled in the Digital Marketing course and I’m already thinking about what I can take next. BrainStation is a fresh approach to learning business concepts with smart and passionate professionals. I would highly suggest BrainStation to anyone looking to build their education or to refresh an old concept.

    Worth it?

    Like most other people I will start by saying this is an honest and objective review, it is (in my opinion anyway), the only thing is that everyone’s experience is different.

    If you do choose to attend Wyncode then you will hear the phrase “You get out what you put in” or something similar, which is true, not just for this course but in life. If you are not ready to fully commit then you may not get what you need or want from this course.

    You have to understand that thi...

    Hi Neil,

    Thank you for taking the time to provide A review of the web immersive program at Wyncode. It's great to hear the positive experience you had with our course and that given the chance, you would go through the web immersive again. I wanted to provide some information and add clarity to your point regarding Wyncode's placement services.

    At Wyncode, we're most proud of the network we've built in the tech ecosystem in South Florida. Over 80 companies have hired Wyncode graduates with more than 30 hiring at least a second Wyncoder. Our top two hiring partners have six Wyncoders each. This speaks to the value we've been able to add to these companies and helps Wyncoders get placed after graduation.

    As far as our current job placement services, Wyncode provides the following job support:

    - Wynterviews during each cohort, where Wyncoders meet local tech companies prior to graduation.
    - Pitch Day, where over 300 tech community members see the Wyncoders pitch their apps and can approach them for employment 
    - Wynterviews during each cohort, where Wyncoders meet local tech companies prior to graduation
    - Twice weekly Wynwork sessions, available free of charge for life, where Wyncode staff provides information on open jobs, individual support, and training to help in the job search and personal introductions to companies

    We’ve recently added improvements including a Hiring Coordinator to support the job placement search and Wyncode's co-founder, Juha Mikkola, involved in day-to-day support. As far as your claim about us sharing roles, our goal is to help Wyncoders find jobs, not harm their efforts. We would never take a Wyncoders' role and offer it to others. If this has happened without our knowledge, please let us know the details so we can investigate.

    We are also committed to transparency, and as a result, we will be the second coding bootcamp in the nation to have its placement outcomes independently verified by Morrison, Brown, Argiz & Farra, LLC, one of Miami's most respected accounting firms. This is part of a commitment made public in a letter to the President of the United States in March 2015. Please keep a look out for this report, as it will provide clear data regarding the job outcomes of Wyncode graduates. 
    We appreciate you leaving your feedback and are happy to have improved on our job placement services as well as the transparency regarding our graduate outcomes.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    They Nurture What You Put In!

    If you are debating on doing a bootcamp over the question of "can you really learn everything you need to be a developer after 9 weeks?" then you are looking at it the wrong way. Even people who have been in the field for 10 years still have more to learn. So what makes this bootcamp worth 10 grand?

    This isn't a factory that is going to give you the most common 100 steps you need to learn to build a web-app and get hired. They try to introduce you to as many technologies and conc...

    100 Days Out - Was Wyncode worth it?

    I'd like to preface this review by stating that I was asked by one of the founders of Wyncode, Juha, to write a review. I planned on writing one anyway prior to his request, but I wanted to wait out the post-graduation 90 day job placement period before doing so to give Wyncode a fair chance. As of writing this, it’s been exactly 100 days since I’ve graduated. This review is fully honest, transparent, and objective. I’m not holding anything back.
