He skipped college, went to this Miami coding school — and got a US$8,000

Calvin Simms always wanted to be a designer but industrial design schools are too expensive for him to afford until one of his friend told him about Miami coding school Wyncode which was launching a digital user experience (UX) design programme. At that time he was working at a Fortune 500 company in its travel department but he took the leap and enrolled in the (UX) design programme. Today, Simms, 28, works for Wyntalent, Wyncode’s in-house consulting agency. He declined to disclose his current salary but says it’s about US$8,000 (RM32,454) more than what his old job paid him. 

Change is not all bad!
