Wyncode (http://www.wyncode.co/) Academy, Fort Lauderdale’s first brick and mortar coding bootcamp, invites you join their 1st Pitch Day event. After an exciting and intense 9 weeks, Wyncoders will present their final project web application. Our previous Miami cohort’s alumni are now leading the charge as junior web developers in the South FL tech scene coding with a vast array of innovative companies including MDLIVE (https://mdlive.com/), EarlyShares (http://www.earlyshares.com/), Cloud Logistics (http://www.gocloudlogistics.com/), Kipu Systems (http://kipusystems.com/), Watsco Ventures (http://www.watsco.com/) and more! Our next cohort will follow in their footsteps and become the new fleet of Ruby developers.

Wyncode's Academy’s past 4 Miami Pitch Days combined have brought together almost 1000 smiling faces and supporters from all over South Florida including many of Wyncode’s hiring partners, leaders in the South FL Tech scene and angel investors.

Wyncode’s previous Miami cohort was made up of 19 hand picked students that spent nine weeks in a full-time immersive bootcamp environment at LAB Miami. The students’ passionate effort culminated in Pitch Day, where they presented their full stack applications which they created in the final two weeks at Wyncode. The students learning of coding skills was complemented by a strong focus on business acumen, including communication and presentation skills as well as an understanding of lean startup and agile methodologies.

Even before the students’ official graduation at Pitch Day IV, 33% of the Wyncoders had already received job offers, a new milestone for Wyncode, which has a 85% placement rate amongst its graduates.

We are proud to announce our incredible panelists for this Pitch Day, who will be deciding the winning app:

- Connie Finkelman: Senior UI Architect at Vitacost (http://www.vitacost.com/)​

- Jonathan Leblanc: Developer Advocate & Evangelist at Braintree (https://www.braintreepayments.com/) Paypal (https://www.paypal.com/)

- John Cattaneo Software Development Manager of Cloud Services at Citrix (https://www.citrix.com/)

​- Ben Williams Director of Business Operations at Cloud Logistics (http://www.gocloudlogistics.com/)

You may discover that learning to code will open the doors to the opportunities you are seeking. You might also meet your Co-Founder or that dream developer you have been looking for. So don’t miss this exciting event.
