Wyncode Academy's Open House Brought Future Coders To Wynwood

Wyncode Academy’s Open House Brought Future Coders To Wynwood

Written by wyncode on 20th March 2014, 11:08 AM

Wyncode Academy has been holding open houses at LAB Miami to introduce the community to our development bootcamp, our head instructor, and our educational platform. We of course offer an intensive immersion coding bootcamp in a city on the cutting edge of tech. We seek to educate and cultivate a workforce of local entrepreneurs, web developers, and educated management who are immediately ready to begin working upon completion. We also offer a brain trust and startup eco-system that includes networking, job placement, and business advising.

We teach you Ruby On Rails and how to build your own web application. Oh yeah, we do it in 9 weeks.

And with hiring partners like CareCloud, a nod from the Knight Foundation, and a job market which actually has more jobs than it does applicants, the time to learn to code is now. Check out these pictures from the event we hosted last night. And if you have any questions, feel free to call us at (305) 720-2422.
