The Wyncode Academy Vision
Wyncode Academy’s curriculum is based on several industry leading concepts and input from other development bootcamps. Your typical day begins with an instructor-led session about a particular concept followed by time to apply what you have learned in a practical, project-based example – often mimicking websites or popular web applications that you already know and use. The days are capped off with business development and mentoring sessions.
While at Wyncode Academy, you will be surrounded by like-minded, motivated and inspirational individuals who want to make a dent in the universe and transition to the tech industry. Wyncode Academy’s students are varied in age, background and nationality. We encourage people of diverse backgrounds to apply as unique viewpoints and skillsets make successful developers. We also encourage international students to participate in the program.
We want to give back to the community while reinforcing the skills you are learning. Part of the program takes you to local schools where we will teach children how to code. You will also work with local businesses to help build creative technological solutions.
Even if you wanted to, you can’t code all day! From weekly activities such as yoga and cross fit, to a day of sailing or testing your reflexes on the go-kart track, Wyncode Academy isn’t all hard work and no play. You might even get inspired to create the next great app while in the real world.
The program culminates in deploying your own web application, which you will create in a group with a fellow student or two. You will connect with a local business, artist or not for profit organization and develop a real program for real users. You will demo and pitch your idea in front of some of the leaders in Miami’s tech scene, preparing you for your new career.
Learning to code is no simple feat – these resources can help aid you on your journey.
