    From start to finish of the bootcamp, the support from the team at Le Wagon is nothing short of amazing. They all have an incredible work ethic and are always 110% willing to help you with whatever you want. Their teachers were always very knowledgeable of the subject they were teaching and always incredibly patient and helpful with all of the students and go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. It is by far the best bootcamp you can find nowadays, and I am recommending it to anybody that wants to start coding. If there's one thing I have to say about them is that I think people should study and prepare a lot more than the provided prep work they give you in order to be better prepared to a REALLY intense 9 weeks. Nonetheless, their infrastructure and tools for helping you learn is amazing. The material is always incredibly up to date, and their alumni network after you finish the course makes this by far the best bootcamp you can choose. As the title says, if you want to start learning how to code, just look for the Le Wagon closest to you and drop by to talk to anybody from their team and I am sure that you will have an amazing experience.

    My LeWagon experience in Dubai was amazing! 
    I just came from high school and I had no experience in coding at all. 
    The 9 week Bootcamp is intense but fun at the same time. 
    You can learn so much, you get a lot of support and you make friends for life. 
    The curriculum brings you through even as a complete beginner. 
    I can recommend the course to everyone who is keen to learn, willing to put a lot of effort into it and who wants to change their life.

    Before joining Le Wagon, I had worked mainly as a business development professional in multiple fields including technology. I decided to apply to Le Wagon because I believe coding is a very versatile skill to have, and knew it would be something I would enjoy. 

    The bootcamp was a great experience for me. It’s very well structured, the challenges are really fun, and the knowledge is incredibly practical. The teachers are very supportive and do their best to offer as much guidance as possible without divulging the answers. 

    It’s also a great place to meet other driven individual. A lot of emphasis is put on teamwork, and students are often helping each other, which truly helped me reinforce my understanding of the concepts. 

    I strongly recommend this program to people who are driven to learn something new and incredibly useful. It’s only 3 months, and the knowledge you gain is invaluable.

    I was a journalist when I signed up for the Wagon, interested in modern data mining tools. 
    The Data Science bootcamp is exciting from start to finish. The program is generous and ambitious and the active pedagogy (learning by doing), very effective. Days go fast while confronting and resolving difficulties by ourselves through exercises, with the support of the team. 
    Working in pairs and in groups on the projects brings a positive energy.
    It’s hard, challenging, intensive, but you’ll be amazed at what you can achieve after 9 weeks.

     Can’t recommend it enough! I read reviews on Le Wagon before signing up and saw so many positive reviews that I had high expectations (and a small amount of doubt--I mean how could there be so many great reviews?) 
     
    Well, I completed the bootcamp and I can tell you truthfully that it's a truly great and amazing experience. 
     
    To start, the curriculum is tried-and-true. I definitely stumbled along the way since there's A LOT of information, but was told to "trust the process" and sure enough, it all clicked at one point. 
     
    The staff and teachers are amazing! Of course, this one will be more dependent on location, but I'm sure the teachers, no matter the location, are great. 
     
    The alumni network is also vast and helpful. You get to join the alumni Slack channel which has over 10,000 graduates, and has articles, resources, job openings, etc. 
     
    It's no small price to pay, but it's actually significantly cheaper than other bootcamps I looked up, and everything you get during and after the bootcamp is easily worth it.

     Whilst my overall experience with Le Wagon was OK, there are elements that are glossed over during the application process. 
     
    The prep work and sample lectures were covered by the CEO and COO of Le Wagon - and are throughly engaging and to a very high standard. The course leader, Anne, was also of this standard. I cannot honestly say the standard of the every day teaching is the same. You are led to believe that the teachers are high-standard industry professionals, however many of my teachers had only just completed the bootcamp themselves and were teaching whilst they found another job in the industry. 
     
    This issue was highlighted further when we came to realise a lot of the teaching assistants had also just completed the bootcamp and was using the role as a stepping stone to tide them over until they found a job in the industry. It's just not really the package that is sold - that the people helping you learn are there because they have a passion for teaching. Many of them are there because they can't find better employment. You quickly come to realise that these are the people you are about to go up against the job market. The TAs are the people who will be applying to the same jobs are you. 
     
    Many of the TAs were brilliant but many of them could only help you by pulling the answer up on their own screens. A couple of them grew frustrated  if I couldn't understand a concept, but it's because they weren't really explaining it. They were reading the answer from their screen.  
     
    To be honest, I feel very deflated by the whole experience. I entered the bootcamp extremely enthusiastic and honoured to have been accepted onto the course and I have left the bootcamp deflated and as though I have been 'sold a dream.' The Le Wagon reality simply is not the same as what you read in the syllabus.

    Unless you want to become a teacher or teaching assistant for le wagon, do not waste your money. Most of the teachers are not experienced, they are mostly people that have only just done the bootcamp themselves and therefore only have 9 weeks of coding knowledge. They have to look at the answer on their screen in order to help you with challenges, they are not experienced to actually explain concepts to you correctly. You will not be learning from experts in the industry. Your experience isn't personalised to you, you do not get any assessment feedback to find out how you are doing during the bootcamp. Some of the teachers are rude and will fob you off and tell you to try and figure out answers for yourself (usually if they don't know how to answer your question).

    Before joining Le Wagon, I was working in the art market as a client development manager. During summer 2020, I decided to have a career change and learn to code so I applied to Le Wagon's web development course and it was the best decision I could have made. It is incredible to see how much I have learnt in the 9 challenging yet fun weeks and although my career path is now completely different I could not be more excited to see where it takes me. I was really impressed with the incredible support from the teachers and TA's who helped me in my learning and confidence everyday throughout the course. What I most enjoyed was the final project, where I designed and implemented a web application in a team of 3 for an idea which I had pitched. It was an opportunity to put together all the coding skills we had learnt, to be really creative and 'techy'! I am so grateful to Le Wagon which has formed the basis of my future.

    I joined Lewagon remotely as a recent business administration graduate with only very basic knowledge of python and SQL. The program was very thoroughly designed.  Due to Lewagon’s internal application named Kitt, it was easy to follow and you did not have the feeling of missing out on anything, although sitting on your desk at home. At all times, the course has been reasonably challenging, whilst a steep learning curve was guaranteed by supportive teaching assistants and the vast amount of course material. The final project in the last two weeks has been a great opportunity to apply all the learnings in a real-life scenario. It helped a lot to internalise and get a sense of the tasks of an actual data scientist. All in all I can clearly recommend the camp to anyone who is interested in data science or coding in general.

    I found Le Wagon when I was looking for a coding bootcamp taught in English, in Tokyo . Learning new skills in English while working full-time for 24 weeks was a big challenge, but it was one of the best life changing decision I’ve ever made. The curriculum is well balanced. I had amazing teachers, TAs and batch mates. I enjoyed every moment of my experience at le wagon.

    Le Wagon is a very rewarding adventure. The training is intensive and combines theory and practice. The different projects teach us how to work in teams and make us approach many subjects (such as database, WebSocket, ...) But Le Wagon is also a community and many resources  tools that allow us to continue to progress even after the training is completed.

    Being a complete Noobie on programming , I had a really good time learning Code at LeWagon. The teaching methodology is one of the best I've ever seen.
    PROS
    Great people, great community, great projects ( the course is very project centered ) and of course Ruby is very friendly ♥️
    CONS
    Very backend oriented, so Front End is very very basic, so you'll have to learn it by yourself once the course is finished. Also, the RoR stack has lots of limitations, and the demand for RoR professional seems concentrated on few countries, specially on France. IAlso, the price is quite high, considering other options. The stack choice seems a bit "old school".
    If the stack was MERN stack, I'm confident I'd have more space in the programming market as a whole. But overall no regrets, very good experience.

Thanks!
