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.

Explaining the fundamental principles upon which the school is based, and how the benefits of total immersion benefit the student with skills moving quickly to market.
“This is an intensive bootcamp designed to get you hired quickly as a junior web developer, or an entrepreneur.”
“This is an intro session we do so that you can see if coding is right for you, if it’s something that excites you. We encourage anyone to come and find out.”
“So far this has been really exciting. Everybody seems super pumped. People have been waiting for this school.”
Would you like to know exactly what we do. Here is an example of a typical day. We also have special activities to keep you entertained. You can’t just code all the time.
Bring your laptop to an intro session and try some code phrases yourself the same day.
Johanna Mikkola used to work as a manager of referees and linemen with the National Hockey League. She knows all about what it takes to be a winner.
Code is the most important aspect of what drives the fastest growing sector of commerce in the world right now. Technology. So, that’s ‘why code.’
And hard statistical data tells us that Rails developers are highly in demand, especially in South Florida. That red line the needle is pointing on the meter in the slide signifies the number of qualified applicants for available jobs using the skills we teach. So yeah, the market is looking for supply to meet its demand.
Take a look, some of our partners who are also looking for talent.
“How many of you have never been to LAB Miami before?” Asks co-founder Daniel Lafuente.
The prospective students who come to find out about our school are encouraged to start learning code from us immediately if they want to.
You can take notes, just listen, whatever, come find out if code is right for you.
We’ll be holding 2 more open houses soon. Look out for more info from us shortly.
You’ll get a chance to meet our founders, ask any questions that you might have, get an introduction to our coursework, find out how we help you get a return on your investment in education, and spend some time with our lead instructor Ed Toro as he leads you through a sample of Wyncode Academy is and does.
