I'm very grateful to Wyncode! If it weren't for the WIT cohort, I wouldn't have realized that I'm front-end development oriented. I never dreamt before the WIT cohort that I would be involved in something like that, pioneering and everything. I feel like I have a bright future ahead if I keep up with Mr. Mikkola's and Wyncode's advice on the job search and staying motivated. I'm grateful to my teacher, to the program manager for the WIT cohort, and everybody else who made it possible.
- Full Stack Web Developer- 6/14/2019Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
You won't regret joining the Wynfam. It's an intense 10 weeks but you sure get out of it what you put in. Once you commit to putting in long days you will grasp the concepts. At the end you will have learned A LOT but you will also know that you have A LOT MORE to learn. Highly recommend. The teachers and TA's are so supportive and the co-founers get so involved in the journey, they're very inspiring.
- ALL REVIEWS ARE BIASED- 5/11/2019Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
Please do not take the reviews for Wyncode seriously. In order to receive "job support" from the Wyntalent team, you are REQUIRED TO LEAVE A FAVORABLE REVIEW of Wyncode on this website, AND verify your review. Therefore, all the great reviews you read about this school have a strong bias. Hundreds of graduates of their web development course remain unemployed, and all of the instructing staff/TAs are previous graduates of the course.
Response From: Cristina of WyncodeTitle: MarketingMonday, May 13 2019Dear Anonymous,
Thank you for your review.We appreciate your opinion and respect your point of view. However, we do want to make a couple of points clear to keep the information posted here accurate.Our job support team is made up of four people (Wyntalent team) plus our co-founders, making it one of the largest job support teams of any code school. We invest in this area because we want to help our graduates find jobs as quickly as possible and assist in them finding their second, third and fourth jobs as well.
We also provide lifetime access to job support which is a unique and useful tool Wyncode offers to its alumni. Just recently, we saw a couple of alumni from our 2016 and 2017 programs, meet with our Wyntalent team to discuss their careers, and in hopes of securing their 2nd and 3rd jobs post Wyncode. This exercise rendered 3 job offers at very prominent tech companies for one of our alumni.Our Lifetime Job Support applies to all Wyncode Alumni of our (full time) UX/UI Immersive Bootcamp and Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp programs -- something they can take advantage of whether or not they post a review.To clarify the claim that “hundreds of graduates … remain unemployed”, we are including our Job Placement Report for 2017 (we are working on final numbers for 2018), which is reviewed and verified by a third party accounting firm to make sure we are transparent in our reporting, see here: https://gallery.mailchimp.com/314a6b43e959479339760bd4a/files/5d088d5e-958b-47ef-98ce-a5f5185a206b/2017_Job_Placement_Report_small_.01.pdfWe are one of only three code schools in the country that have an independently verified report that shows exactly what happens with our graduates after graduation. This data is verified by a large accounting firm for accuracy. For example, in 2017, we were proud to maintain a 90% job placement rate among job-seeking graduates and are on track for a similar number once the 2018 figures are compiled later this year.We hire the best instructors in the space. All of our instructors must pass a rigorous technical assessment and demonstrate that they are able to teach effectively. We are very proud of our teaching team since our inception as a school; to name a few all-stars - Full Stack instructor Ed Toro, who holds a BS in Computer Science and Engineering from M.I.T and has over 12 years of experience in top tech firms prior to teaching at Wyncode from 2014 to 2018 -- and Andy Weiss, our current Head Instructor for the Full Stack program - who comes from a background in education holding a Masters in Education from Harvard University and prior to joining Wyncode, was the Lead Engineer at Mark Cuban funded Nuro Retention. Our UX/UI program is lead by the amazing Gessica Tortolano, who has more than 20 years of experience in Product and User Experience Design - having worked for clients like Google, Gap, Samsung, IBM, Coca Cola, The Miami Heat, Carnival Cruises and more.For recent graduates interested in teaching, we have a tiered TA system whereby TAs can join the team in a junior position and move up the ranks and eventually reach the level of an instructor. Typically, our junior TA’s are part-time as they consist of the top performers from each cohort, who are quickly hired by our hiring partners at the end of their cohorts.Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach out to us at Wyncode anytime. We are always here to help!
- Discouraged.- 4/26/2019Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
I hate that I grew to have a type of grudge towards wyncode. Wyncode is everything everyone mentions here. You meet amazing people who become family to you. You're losing your mind studying non stop. The professors are amazing. The staff is ehhh ok. The TA's are great people. And Yes, you will most likely cry from frustation if you have no experience what so ever in coding. I was a happy student here. Even though at times I felt as if I would never be able to do this I still wanted to do what I can to accomplish this. I had a hard time, went to the next cohort but still tried. I mett amazing people who until this day I keep in contact with. The owners are very into their public appearance. Which is okay and it should be but to an extent. I was very discouraged the moment I was called for a small meeting in regards to my "behavior". I will be very honest, I am very silly and love to joke around which is who I am and that is my personality itself. But NEVER did I EVER do anything to disrupt a student or do anything to have someone lose their focus or be abruptly rude. What I was told I was being called for was absolutely ridiculous and felt as everyone who was speaking to me felt as it was just as ridiculous but were doing their job in telling me. I took very much offense to it because this place I loved to be at instantly became a place I hated to attend. From there on I was discouraged and didnt want to be present in class anymore and everything went down hill. Didnt learn the half I stayed behind for from being discouraged. I wish I couldve been maybe even refunded in some type of way after this. For it being so much money, I personally dont feel as I got what I deserved for the money I paid and worked HARD for and QUIT my job for. I appreciate the assistance and help I got from being sent to the next cohort, but I dont appreaciate the bogus accusations. It totally sucked, this is something personal that happened with just myself and wont deny that it can be great for anyone else. I just wish things were handed differently and couldve been concluded differently. The instructors are great and teach very well. The curriculum isnt always clear but at the end of the day if you do google hard enough you will find your way around it. Job assistance was overall blah.
- Full Stack Web Developer- 1/4/2019Anonymous • Student • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
This experience literally changed my life! Wyncode gave me so much structure and knowledge, as well as a great support team. The extra help you get outside classroom hours is unreal, everybody is willing to help, without making you feel like you should already know that, and with a limitless amount of patience. If you put the extra time and work, you will definitely be rewarded. A little word of advice: you should practice coding for a while before you start the bootcamp: I had no knowledge in coding (background in education), and although I have learned a lot in these past 10 weeks, there were many times I felt lost and would think "I wish I would have practiced this a little before starting this course". So if you are thinking about giving it a try, I strongly encourage you to do so, but I also belive that practicing some coding before you start will make a huge difference in you learning experience.

- Good experience but programming is hard- 10/18/2018Anonymous • email@example.com • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
Jo Juha & PK & Austin and whole team are awesome, you really are part of the family and they look out for you regardless of programming or life background.
The way the bootcamp is designed is awesome too, it really makes you not only challenge to learn coding but also to display your talents with projects so you can be proud of your skills.
The only thing I'll say though is that programming isn't for everybody. I barely survived the bootcamp and was always behind and seeking help of the TA's(who were also awesome) and others, and now even though I'm getting some job attention I am scared of being so underqualified and still am reviewing my stuff. I think out of my batch half of gotten dev jobs through wyncode circle. I feel embarassed to call myself a full-stack developer when I can't finish a rails app without help or hours of googling. The bootcamp after week 2 is intense. I'll see where the job hunt leads and hopefully through that can get more experience. Overall I recommend it, but it may be a smart idea to delve more into programming on your own then join it and if you're a slow learner then get a feel for it before taking the full leap.
- It was a good experience- 8/20/2018Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
I think my time at Wyncode was interesting. Our cohort did not entirely get along. No one wanted to participate in socials and no one really keeps in touch. It was just a weird time.
Overall, I thought that the curriculum was fine, and they did their best to prepare us for interviews after Wyncode.
My biggest disapointment is that I needed money to start paying back my loan, so I never got to actually use my new dev skills. It almost feels like a waste of money.
Response From: Craig of WyncodeTitle: Director of AdmissionsWednesday, Aug 22 2018Hi there,
I just wanted to briefly address your concerns:
I am sorry that the cohort you were in did not mesh socially in the way that many of the classes here do during their time in the Wyncode program. We have high admissions requirements and we try to carefully curate our classes to try to make sure that everyone will get along and work well together, but that's nearly impossible to guarantee.
Also, most Wyncoders find that it’s more than a cohort, it becomes a lifelong network of friends and colleagues that can help to grow within the same tech ecosystem. We are sorry that you didn’t feel that way. Sometimes one personality might just not mix in with the group. That said, our doors are always open for lifetime job support and networking and all 600+ grads are available to you via Slack; along with teaching assistants and our instructors are here to help you get plugged into groups that are part of the tech/development area here in South Florida.
We want you to be able to utilize the skills you learned at Wyncode, so please come by and get reconnected with our Director of Hiring Partnerships and Wynwork team, so that we can help get you going in the right direction with regard to finding work that does encompass the type of development that you want to do and are capable of doing.
As always, please feel free to come by the campus, connect via Slack or give us a call anytime. We hope to see you again soon and help get you on track to working as a developer.
- a new start- 5/18/2017Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
I came in from a totally different field, with no coding background. Wyncode looked like a place that could get me employable, so I decided to give it a shot. You will learn a ton of great skills, but you have to be motivated. Basic computer skills are a must. I had a job offer BEFORE I graduated! Instructors and TAs are good, though none are trained in education, so there are definitely problems in the curriculum and with the teaching styles. The cost of the program is too high in my opinion--they seem to spend a lot of money on spoiling the students: beer, food, social events, etc. I think they should cut all of that and drop the price. I paid to learn, not to party. The two main instructors are incredibly different, so make sure you inquire before registering. VERY wide range of abilities in the classes, which can make pacing difficult. They do a great job at the end helping you find, interview and apply for jobs--very supportive. If you are ready for a life change, love being on the computer, and have the the financial means, go for it! Wyncode is definitely NOT for everyone though, several of my classmates were miserable at coding and will likely never get a tech job. Wyncode has started to get a good name in in the area though, and I would recommend it if you know you can do it.
- <Udacity- 10/1/2016Anonymous • Developer • Graduate • Course: Web Development Intensive • Campus: Fort Lauderdale
After going through Wyncode, It definetly was not worth the 10k. After graduating I enrolled in a Udacity nanodegree course and graduated after 2 months. My current employeers were way more impressed with the work I did in my nanodegree program. The job support I received with Udacity actually helped me get my current position. It is strange that Udacity offers money back after 6 months if you are not hired but Wyncode won't do that. I would love to get that 10k back to be honest. Waste of good money and time. I do not reccomend. its a good course but worth around $700 to be honest. I urge you to try something else.
Response From: Matt Campbell of WyncodeTitle: Director of AdmissionsThursday, Oct 06 2016Dear Wyncoder,Thank you for your feedback! Udacity is one of our out-of-state hiring partners and we're happy to tout three Wyncode graduates who have been hired there with one right after the program. In fact, those graduates have been instrumental in the creation of the Ruby nanodegree.We're happy that you were able to finish the nanodegree in two months, which is faster than the average completion of six months to a year. It's unfortunate that you feel the nine-week program did not attribute to your success with that curriculum.Also, we're confident that the web immersive is more than just a curriculum that teaches beginners how to build web applications. Wyncode is a community of individuals, including you, who are looking to broaden their opportunities while developing a new skill set and investing themselves in the burgeoning South Florida ecosystem.As far as job support, we've successfully placed graduates in over 80 companies with over 30 hiring more than one, five of which have hired more than five. Considering your experience as a Wyncode graduate, it makes sense that the Udacity nanodegree would make you a more exceptional candidate. We also encourage our graduates to continue learning beyond the web immersive and it's great to hear that you've done that.Best of luck in your current role and know that we're happy to have you part of the Wynfam!Thanks,Matt Campbell, Director of Admissions at Wyncode Academy
- The biggest lie was...- 9/27/2016Anonymous • still looking
A lot of people chose Wyncode because of their 90% placement in 90 days. After their own audits we now know the truth behind that. Many people are still looking for work. Many people had to go back to their old lives and even move back to where they originally lived before moving here with the hopes of finding work.
Saying that Wyncoders graduate and go to work in Tech, isnt a stretch. But with that said, they are not coding. Lots of people graduating Wyncode are taking jobs with companies doing things other than coding.
Wynwork (job placement) sessions are depressing. They ask you if you have any leads, then share them with everyone else, causing that company to get bombarded with applicants. That arent always qualified.
Miami tech doesnt really exist as much as they try and sell you. Its the same small group of people. To be honest they arent even that welcoming. If you dont beleive me just go to any "tech event" in Miami and say "hello" to the same 30 people you see at every event.
After looking for work for almost over 6 months, I can tell you that Ruby is not hiring here in Miami. They will tell you that so many companies use Ruby, that may be true. But they def. arent hire, and if they are. They arent hiring Jr. Devs.
With that being said almost no one is hiring Jr devs in Miami.
There arent many negative reviews here because Miami is all about who you know, and people know that if you get blacklisted. Its pretty much over for you. There has actually been talk about class action lawsuit between quite a bit of previous Wyncoders from multilpe cohorts across multiple locations, because of the 90% job placement rating which was their biggest selling point. A lot of people took out loans and are paying them back and honestly havent even gotten a single interview after Wyncode.
Also, telling people that "getting the job is up to you, we give you everything you need to get the interview" is a really crappy way to make people think its their fault they cant find the work. When in reality there is no work.
Finally, if any of this sounds far fetched or just someone being bitter. Lets look at the facts, well over 250 people have graduated Wyncode and there are only 118 reviews. If everyone was satisfied with their experience they would have been happy to leave a review, or let alone resond to the audit questions.
Response From: Matt Campbell of WyncodeTitle: Director of Admissions at Wyncode AcademyThursday, Oct 06 2016Dear Wyncoder,We’re sorry to hear that you’ve been having difficulties finding a role in Miami. The job hunt in any field is difficult but, we would like to make it better for you. We appreciate your feedback and would like to address some of the concerns you expressed.For a long time we wanted to make sure our stats were verified for the benefit of those enrolling in our program and you. So that's what we did this summer. Our recently released independently verified job report will show that 97% of job seeking graduates during 2014-2015 were placed 120+ days after graduation. 188 Wyncoders graduated during that time, and 168 graduates were considered job seeking, defined as actively looking for a role in the 90 days following graduation. Of the 163 graduates who obtained work after graduation, 137 graduates, or 84%, obtained a technical role. A technical role is defined as working as part of, or directly with, an engineering team. Our marketing will be updated to reflect these audited statistics.As far as the job market, Wyncode graduates have been hired at over 80 companies, with 30 hiring more than one. The majority of our hiring partners are in South Florida and we’ve had five companies hire five or more Wyncode graduates. We continue to host Wynterviews, which introduce Wyncoders to companies looking for hires. There is definitely demand for junior developers and is evidenced by the number of Wynterviews we host every cohort. Students have been hired out of these sessions in the past and it’s also valuable interview practice.The WynWork sessions are a means to support students as they continue their job search. The sessions are designed to provide tips, advice, and personal introductions and direct contact with hundreds of local hiring partners. Also, WynWork support is not only offered to help graduates with their first roles, but also their second and third after graduating from the program.Wyncode is licensed by the Florida Department of Education and as a result, we are not allowed to promise roles to anyone by law. The job search can be difficult, but as I mentioned, we offer support for students and do the best we can to help place them in tech roles after graduation. The web immersive program is designed to teach individuals the skills necessary to build web apps while also focusing on soft skills, including interview prep, resume prep, and providing connections with South Florida hiring partners. In our over two years of operation, we’ve done just that and our student outcomes are evidence of that.Wyncode has the most ratings out of any brick-and-mortar coding bootcamp in the country on Course Report. Considering your logic, none of the coding bootcamps on this site would be legitimate. We’re happy to see graduates leave reviews, positive or negative, because it provides prospective students an opportunity to see what our program has to offer.If you’re still having trouble finding roles in Miami, please feel free to reach out and we’ll do our best to support you.Thanks,
Matt Campbell, Director of Admissions at Wyncode Academy
- Not worth the 10k- 9/15/2016Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Web Development Intensive • Campus: Fort Lauderdale
First, let me say, that I met a lot of cool people who I still keep in touch with and who I had a lot of fun with. But like a previous reviewer stated, I did not sign up to make friends, I signed up to learn to code and acquire a set of skills that would make me employable. That however did not happen.
With that out of the way, one of my first issues with Wyncode is with integrity. It seems like they will say anything to get you to signup and give them 10k. 90% placement at 75k is terrible unethical marketing. Not even close to 50% for my cohort. That was their pitch when I signed up. I've actually considered taking legal action as I'm still stuck paying the loan. When I was on the fence, they pitched " hurry, only one spot left", so I did, only to see 2 students admitted after our start date. In the previous cohort they admitted a older gentleman who was unemployable and In our cohort they admitted a student who could not type. If they could pay they were in.
I agree with a previous post, if you sign up for code school,($25) and if you read a book each in JS, Ruby, and RoR, ($75) you would have learned more then the curriculum and only for $100!!! I agree with homework issues stated below, many times you would learn something very dense, only to realize the hw is from yesterday's lecture.
We were basically lab rats with our instructor. They hired Damon, who while a great coder, was a poor instructor. He only taught two cohorts and was let go, so that tells you all you need to know. Meanwhile we are stuck footing the bill for this experiment.
This is one of the worst parts of the whole program. You are basically on your own. Send emails and come to follow ups and talk about it. The wynterviews, are good, but I think they should probably be longer and allow you to show off a project or two. In my cohort alone, I would say 75% were not hired and/or no longer coding. I would also second the email bombarding from Wyncode was a turn off to potential employers, as I had an employer say this to me directly.

For those newly in development, Wyncode helps support people to launch into new careers, especially if you're a south florida local. It was definitely a fun and memorable experience! Still though a price tag that costs an arm and a leg of $10,000 which was SOOOO MUCHH for me, I would probably expect similar education for $5K or something... in terms of actual content, didn't feel like a full-on developer or designer and so much to learn still so a bit bummed out for that but maybe I had too high expectations and yeah wyncode did help me jumpstart everything still and yeah am happy I still got access to the network and for learning about the power and elegance of Ruby on Rails. Pitch day won't be forgotten! Nothing is perfect but take the leap if you're ready :) And if you're not or can't afford it..it will be difficult but you can pull through with right mentorship so yeah keep the hustle going and find local guides to help steer the way! Anything is possible for those committed!
- Incredible Experience- 10/20/2018Pio • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Miami
I started Wyncode in early August of this year. I can honestly say I've never learned so much from a school in such a short amount of time. Before starting the course, I had never had any programming experience. My background is in music and I was skeptical about how much could really be taught about a subject in just 10 weeks. This school is doing a great service by teaching these skills, and the instructors they have on staff are so articulate and thorough that they make the material easy to learn. I would highly recommend that anyone who is interested in learning to code look into Wyncode and reach out to some of the staff, students, and alumni!
