The Wyncode Vision

Curriculum

Wyncode’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.

PEERS

While at Wyncode, 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’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.

GIVE BACK

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.

RELAX

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 isn’t all hard work and no play. You might even get inspired to create the next great app while in the real world.

DEMO DAY

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.

FAQs

What is Wyncode?

Wyncode is a development boot camp immersing ambitious individuals in a demanding and inspiring learning environment engineered to develop successful coders with business acumen.

We believe in promoting programming literacy using a disruptive education model and feel that a boot camp environment is the best way to learn practical and relevant coding skills quickly.

What does it cost?

Tuition is $9,000 for nine weeks of intensive daily web development and business training.

Tuition includes two additional weeks at the end of the cohort for students to continue working in the Wyncode space as and having access to our mentors.

When does it start?

Wyncode’s next cohort begins on Monday July 21st, 2014 and the third cohort begins in October, 2014.

Can I really learn to program a computer in 9 weeks?

Yes! You can and will learn how to code. We know because we have done it ourselves. At the end of the course, you will develop your own web application.

Do I need to have previous programming experience?

No. Previous experience is not necessary. Some of our students have never programmed before while others might have experience in HTML, CSS or basic Ruby or JavaScript through online courses who are looking for a way to really learn these skills.

Will you help me find a job?

Quite simply, your success is our success. During the course, you will get help preparing your resume and Github account so that you stand out from the crowd. We will network with companies that are in Miami and connect with some outside of Miami using video chat and other methods. We will host a hiring week at the end of the course where you will meet and be interviewed by companies. We are also in the process of partnering with other like-minded development bootcamps in the US and Canada to grant our students access to their hiring weeks to increase the potential pool of employers, should you wish to work outside of Miami.

Employment Guarantee Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of job placement upon completion of the course. The institution is not promising or implying any specific market or job availability amounts.

Why Ruby on Rails?

Simply put, Ruby is the language of the future. It allows people to speak with computers in English rather than learning how to speak in code.

A quick Google search will turn up a lot of great resources about Rails. For example, Business Insider research why Ruby on Rails is hot and Tech Republic took listed their 10 most compelling reasons to learn Ruby on Rails. Here’s our take on why Ruby is Red Hot.

What kind of salary should I expect as a Rails developer?

The average starting salary for a Ruby on Rails developer is about $75k. In San Francisco and New York, it can be closer to $90k. (Salary sources: http://mirrorplacement.com).

Employment Guarantee Disclaimer: There is no guarantee of job placement upon completion of the course. The institution is not promising or implying any specific market or job availability amounts.

What startups in Miami use Ruby on Rails?

The startup ecosystem in Miami is booming.

You might not have known this, but in South Florida there’s a huge demand for Ruby on Rails developers. According to our friend Anat Benarie at Modis, there’s currently 43 active candidates for 407 job postings for Ruby on Rails within a 50 mile radius of Fort Lauderdale. The top recruiter for Rails is Carecloud Corporation based in Miami, who have partnered with Wyncode to offer a $5,000 signing bonus for students they hire from Wyncode.

Many other startups use Ruby on Rails and here is a list to back that up!

How are we different?

Wyncode separates itself from other coding bootcamps by focusing on teaching coding skills and the business and leadership skills you need to succeed, whether you plan to start your own company or work for an established one. We are also the only bootcamp located in the dynamic up and coming tech hub of Miami, which is uniquely positioned to become a major tech centre due to its entrepreneurial climate and close links to Latin America.

What kind of commitment does the program require?

Wyncode is an immersive full-time, boot camp-style experience. To truly succeed, students regularly put in more than a normal days work and some choose to work even harder. What you put in is what you get out, so we recommend not working or studying elsewhere while you are in the program so you can give it your full commitment.

What is a typical day like at Wyncode?

A typical day at Wyncode looks something like this:

  • 9:30 AM – Stand ups: Wyncoders talk about what they did yesterday, what they plan to do today and any blockers they face
  • 10 AM to noon – Tech lecture
  • 12 to 1 PM – Lunch break
  • 1 PM to 6 PM – Project-based learning/coding time. Instructors and teaching assistants are available to help Wyncoders with any issues.
  • 3:30 to 4 PM – Two times a week, a business speaker joins Wyncode for an intimate chat. These speakers include CEOs, CTO’s, entrepreneurs, recruiters and tech industry leaders.
  • 6 PM+ – Wyncoders are welcome to stay in the Wyncode space as late as they want to work on projects.
  • Wyncode encourages a balanced lifestyle and optional evening events include a run crew on Mondays, Yoga on Wednesdays and more.
  • There are tech events and meet ups in Miami almost every night which are brought to the attention of Wyncoders.

We meet Monday to Friday.

Where are you located?

Wyncode is located in the vibrant tech-hub of Wynwood, Miami in the center of it all: the LAB Miami, Miami’s best co-working space.

Wynwood is an inspirational neighborhood where you will be surrounded by art galleries, great coffee shops and restaurants and an accelerating tech ecosystem.

Learn more about Wynwood:

The LAB Miami houses over 160 members, the majority of who are tech companies ranging from one person start-ups to more established companies with hundreds of thousands of users like Learner Nation.

I’m from out of town. Can you help me find a place to stay?

Miami is a major city with a lot of different options to stay. We do not have on-campus housing options but are happy to provide recommendations and  connect you with fellow students who usually make great room mates.

Are you an accredited academic institution?

Wyncode is not an accredited academic institution. We believe in a disruptive education model that is not based on offering certificates. We love the flexibility of being independent and constantly improving our offering to provide a learning experience unlike any other.

Do you have scholarships or financing available?

There are currently no scholarships or financing options available.

When do I need to pay?

We require a non-refundable $1000 deposit upon acceptance with the balance of the tuition due before the start of class.

Once accepted, how can I prepare?

The best way to prepare is to get comfortable with the basics of the programming languages that we will learn before the cohort begins. Once accepted, we will share several pre-work assignments with you. These assignments are not mandatory but we strongly recommend working through them to give you the best preparation possible.

Do I need a computer?

Yes, students need their own computer. We strongly encourage students to bring their own Apple or Linux-based laptop to get the most out of the program and continuing working when off campus.
