Wyncode is headed north. After graduating four cohorts and nearly 70 students from their Wynwood location at The LAB Miami, Wyncode founders Juha and Johanna Mikkola are expanding to the up-and-coming Flagler Arts and Technology Village in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Their second location will also be at a co-working space, General Provision, in FATvillage.

“Wyncode’s thrilled to expand our coding education to Fort Lauderdale,” says Juha Mikkola. “We have seen huge interest from both students and hiring partners in Fort Lauderdale as well as North of the city, in areas like West Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Delray Beach. We want to provide students with the right education to join these awesome startups and build an exciting career as a software developer.”

The development boot camp welcomes programming newcomers and other students from a wide variety of backgrounds. Over a nine week period, students spend at least 300 hours learning and working collectively to create their very own web app.

The Fort Lauderdale campus’ Lead Instructor Damon Davison, a highly experienced developer, is active in the local startup community.

Wyncode is part of the founding group of code schools behind NESTA (New Economy Skills Training Association). NESTA’s mission is to establish best practices, standards, and increase accountability for outcome-based technology training organizations. According to Wyncode’s co-founder Juha Mikkola, “…We hope that this movement will make it easier for students to identify which programs are truly effective at placing them into the workforce in relevant junior web developer positions.”

The Wyncode Miami cohort for April is sold out. Wyncode’s next cohort starts in Ft. Lauderdale on April 20th and June 4th in Miami.
