Lynn students gain coding skills in new on-campus classes

Students take classes at Wyncode Academy through Lynn University.

Lynn University, boot camp and coding. You might be surprised that these three go together—and they do quite well! Lynn’s collaboration with Miami-based coding bootcamp Wyncode Academy now allows bachelor’s degree seeking students to gain immersive web development skills on campus.

Wyncode is the first coding boot camp to be accredited by the Florida Department of Education’s Commission for Independent Education. In May 2016, Lynn first announced its partnership with the academy to offer graduate degrees in web development and design, which established a relationship that quickly flourished.

“We are very excited to expand our program offerings with Wyncode,” says RT Good, dean of Lynn’s College of Business and Management. “Wyncode empowers students to thrive in the dynamic world of software development. This aligns perfectly with our mission to keep students’ marketable and their skills current.”

Lynn’s on campus coding course work is designed in partnership with Wyncode in accordance with accreditation standards and core values of both institutions. The first group of students began on campus coding classes this spring.

These six undergraduates began their journey into web development by learning Ruby on Rails, a popular open-source language. Programming with Ruby covers a broad spectrum of topics, from the basic variables to objects widely used in programming languages across the world. As the courses progress, students will set up their own development environments and gain complete grip over the “command line.” By the end of the course work, students will have a solid understanding of key required concepts, as well as the ability to set protocols, for the foundation of the modern web.

“Before Wyncode, I was always interested in coding, but I never knew where to start,” says student David Gibson. “Now, not only have I built a foundation in computer science, but I also have gained skills that have resulted in internship opportunities."
