Wyncode, South Florida’s first coding school, launching in Miami

 

South Florida is getting it first coding school. Wyncode, a nine-week immersion-style development boot camp teaching students computer programming and how to create their own web apps, will begin its first class in early May at The LAB Miami, a campus for creative entrepreneurs in Wynwood.

With the startup ecosystem developing in Miami, founders Juha Mikkola and Johanna Mikkola said they launched Wyncode to contribute to the creation and growth of local developer talent, an area which has been a challenge for tech employers in the region. In nine weeks, the Wyncode student will create a variety of projects culminating in the creation and pitch of their own web application. Well-known South Florida developer Ed Toro is the lead instructor.

Code schools are common in other tech and startup areas, such as Silicon Valley, Austin and Seattle. Wyncode’s full-time bootcamp costs $9,000 (there’s a $1,000 credit for the first 20 students), and that is competitively priced with what other code schools charge.

Wyncode is holding Learn to Code info sessions at 7 p.m. at The LAB Miami this Wednesday and on April 2 and April 16.
