    Incredible experience - Highly Recommend!

    When researching development bootcamps across the United States I remember coming across several reviews that said the experience was great, yet lacked a bit of organization from a curriculum standpoint or instructor standpoint. Well, Wyncode was not great, it was incredible and did not disappoint in any department! Not only was the curriculum great, but the people and instructors were too. At Wyncode you really become pa...

    Incredible Experience!

    Wyncode was nothing short of a life changing experience for me.

    I decided to attend Wyncode because I had always enjoyed programming, but was no where near proficient enough to get a job as a software engineer. Coming into Wyncode I did have some coding experience. I knew VBA and was knowledgeable in Objective-C and Java. I used tools like Lynda.com and youtube to learn to code, but it was never enough. I never felt very confident in my abilities.

    I was skepti...

    Best thing I have done for my career life to date!

    Prior to Wyncode I was unsure about my professional future. Wyncode has given me a thorough platform of knowledge with which I can work with, towards a successful career. The program is very thorough and demands around 10 - 12 hours per day of dedicated work/study. The teacher is more than qualified for the job, he knew the answer to the most complicated of problems that the TA's struggled to offer help with. The program makes a good job of introducing you to the tech scene through buildin...

    Amazing Experience with Great People

    Believe all the hype!  After many years as an entrepreneur, I sold my business and applied to Wyncode. Everybody from the lead instructor, Ed, to the campus director, Juliana, really were great and helped with every question that was I asked. This course is intensive, be prepared to invest all your time here during the cohort. But that will pay off when you have the skills necessary to join the workforce or like me, begin a company from scratch.

    Best Decision I Ever Made

    Learning how to code is not easy. Quitting my job, moving 200 miles from home, and attending an intensive 9 week bootcamp was the last thing I ever imagined myself doing. I am a 30-something woman with kids, husband, mortgage, the whole shebang and here I was having  what seemed like a midlife crisis. I had a decent job in sales. But it never felt like a career. I felt more and more dread  waking up each day. I wanted something better for myself, for my family. But I couldn...

    Great experience, great results

    Wyncode provided one of the greatest educational experiences I've ever been involved in, and I've been involved in education my entire life. The curriculum was robust and demanding. The instructor really knows how to explain difficult computer-sciency concepts in language that anyone from any background can understand, and he's an encyclopedia of coding knowledge. He's super helpful and generous with his time and mentorship. The TAs are knowledgable and incredibly help...

    Web Development

    I am currently taking the 'Intro to Web Development' class. The instructors are great and are putting a lot of effort into teaching the course. I am not so convinced by the Curriculum. It goes greatly into depth. I wish it would link each coding example with a practical example. I have absolutely no coding experience. It is honestly too fast/advanced for me for an intro course. Be prepared to do a lot of extra work at home. Unfortunately the courses are also on the higher end, when...

    cohort 2

    I was in wyncode's 2nd cohort. Going in initially I had only ever been exposed to one html and css course in college years prior. Through wyncode they provided an excellent intro and over all understanding and eliminated the unknown fears of tech. Post wyncode I was confident enough to know i now had the skills to continue to learn and grow in my skill set. I started in tech staffing and recently got a new job as a developer for another staffing agency where I am in charge of all things te...

    Great, intensive bootcamp focusing on Ruby on Rails.  Felt like I really learned how to code and not just how to code in Ruby.  Also great support with interviews and teaches you a lot of the soft skills necissary to succeed.

    The instructors are all very knowlegeable as well as the teaching assistants.

    I am enrolled in the Intro to iOS Development course and I love it! The structured classes and expereinced instructors makes learning Swift much more enjoyable. The class learning style gives students the ability to learn and solve REAL WORLD problems, which is applicable to our everyday lifestyles. The instructors are personable and can guide you in the right direction. So far I am loving my investment into the iOS course :)
