Campus Spotlight: Miami

Sunny Miami has become quite the destination for tech professionals. Are you next? 

Juliette Carreiro - Tech Writer


Miami is known for its sunny days, multicultural community, and sandy beaches. Located in southern Florida, Miami brings together a wide range of cultures and countries with its extremely diverse population. Thanks to this diversity, Miami is one of the most popular destinations in the US and the entire world. With a wide range of shopping opportunities, incredible nightlife, outdoor activities abound, and lots of sunshine, there’s no doubting why so many people choose Miami to live, work, and study.

Why Miami? 

Miami plays a unique role: it connects Latin America to the US, ensuring that the city is extremely diverse and full of different cultures. Take for example the Wynwood Arts District, a hipster neighborhood filled with galleries, shopping, tech companies, great restaurants, and nightlife. Or the Brickell neighborhood, a metropolitan area filled with high rises, large businesses, tech companies, and restaurants. Both of these offer tech happy hours consistently that help newcomers connect and network with the bustling Miami tech community. 

Following the pandemic, lots of workers saw the possibility of remote work and moved towards Miami’s sunny beaches, making it a new powerhouse in tech. Miami’s tech scene raised close to $1 billion in venture funding in 2022 and is ranked as the #1 city in startup activity

Is that not enough?! Check out these highlights: 

  • Year round tech and Web3 conferences: eMerge Americas is one of the largest tech conferences in the country.

  • A wide variety of industries: Miami is known for tourism/hospitality, maritime, and real estate (all industries that need tech workers).

  • Up and coming tech hub: since the pandemic, many tech companies based in California and New York have opened offices in Miami. 

  • Rise in Web3 activities: there has been a rise in Web3 activities as Miami’s mayor has bet on the future of the blockchain. This has helped many tech groups, conferences, and startups build a future in Miami, providing our students with great networking opportunities.

  • Our full-time bootcamps are ideal for those looking to get a new job soon and can exclusively dedicate nine weeks to learning. If you want fast results, this is for you.

The results are the same as our full-time course, just spread out over more weeks to allow you time to handle your other commitments. 

  • Our remote bootcamps are an option for everyone, even if you’re already located near our campus. These courses offer more flexibility and start dates, in addition to language variations, to help you choose the perfect course for you. And don’t worry about missing out on our events or course help; remote students are welcome at campus any day of the week and can benefit from everything offered to in-person students.
