At Wyncode, we believe you should learn from the best. That’s why our teaching team is second to none.
Don’t just take it from us – get to know the #WynSquad.
Ed Toro, Head Instructor
Ed’s a #MiamiTech OG. He’s an MIT grad who’s been with six startups, including one that went public. Ed was teaching code in his own time before Wyncode existed and now has almost 20 cohorts under his belt at a ridiculous 9.5+/10 overall student rating. Ed’s Pitch Day speeches are a thing of legend and he has also appeared at the eMerge Americas conference. He built version 1 of Wyncode’s curriculum.
Auston Bunsen, Head Instructor
Auston’s a self-taught developer who led the technical team as CTO of 1Sale, a 400+ person startup in Miami, at the age of 25. He founded SuperConf, the first tech conference in Miami, and got companies like CodeSchool (sold for $36 million) and LiveNinja (sold to Net2Phone) their first investments. He’s sold an app to Zillow and is currently moonlighting as CTO at Jinxd when he’s not teaching.
Tim Reen, Curriculum Developer
Tim’s Wyncode’s curriculum developer. He was Palm Beach County’s Math Teacher of the Year in just his second year of teaching. He joined Wyncode nearly two years ago after excelling in his cohort. Tim’s approach to building learning objectives and assessments while constantly evolving Wyncode’s curriculum is the main reason why Wyncoders are so well prepared for jobs after our program. He’s combining the best of traditional education with bleeding edge technology.
PK Banks, Instructor
PK is an Instructor in Auston’s cohort. He’s a Wharton grad and a former successful Wall Street trader who was in a position by age 30 to retire and move to Miami. Since then, he’s been making his mark in the tech industry. PK graduated Wyncode’s first cohort and after a couple of startups, joined our team full-time to give back to the next generation of developers. He’s one of the creators of Meme.Menu
Don Morehouse, Instructor
Don is an Instructor in Ed’s cohort. He’s an anesthesiologist who studied Molecular Biology at the University of Washington. After growing tired of the medical field, he attending Wyncode’s Ft. Lauderdale program. He excelled and quickly showed why his photographic memory and curiosity for tech made him an incredible teacher. Don holds the title as being the only human who can grade homework submissions faster than Wyncode’s auto-grading bot.
Unlike many other code schools, our instructors are the best in the business and could work anywhere, but choose to work at Wyncode. They are full-time and completely dedicated to your success. This full-time teaching team is complemented by dozens of teaching assistants who are all professional web developers in South Florida.
