I took the bootcamp in Bali, expecting to be able to program some of the ideas I had in my mind and get a better access to technology. These expectations were exceeded, by far.
First of all, the learning platform that the guys of Le Wagon have developed is impressive, to put it mildly. All the materials were accessible and everything felt super intuitive. The platform in my view is not only supportive but an integral part of the program.
Second, I was super impressed by the quality of teaching. I am now in my third week after the bootcamp and still very excited about all the things and got to know about technology. Also, the practical nature of the camp was very much how I like to learn things. And the ticketing system for when you need support is efficient, giving always access to either a teacher or a teaching assistant.
Third, I believe the main language - Ruby - that is being thought is an excellent entry point to software development, as it is much easier to understand than most other languages I have seen so far. Once this is mastered, I truly believe that learning another language will be much easier.
Overall, I can thoroughly recommend the course, especially if you're willing to step into the world of technology and want to take ownership of it.
Before joining Le Wagon I was working as a business developer in a big French construction company, based in Hong Kong.
I joined the camp because I had been thinking for a while of switching and going in IT. But IT is so big I did not know what to do there nor how to switch. By talking with friends working in different fields and by having a closer link at what they each did I figured that web development would be a fun way to start coding and entering the IT world.
Some of them mentioned different bootcamp that they knew of, but Le Wagon is the only one good friends attended. Since I know them well and trust them, when they told me that it was a great experience I just went for it.
The camp experience was intense, days can be long (10-12h). You have many things to learn and find out that 24h in a day is not enough to to everything, learning and having a life. Although it was intense it was also great as the other buddies attending the bootcamp were all nice and fun people. There was a good team spirit and solidarity, since we all came in here to learn as much as we could and all had different objectives for after the camp.
I'm pretty social, love meeting people, and Le Wagon introduced me to an impressive diversity of people. Several nationalities being represented (13 was it?), many different backgrounds etc. It was perfect!
For people hesitating doing a coding bootcamp I'd say, it will be intense don't fool yourself, but you will learn a lot and will come out of it with good buddies and be part of a family.
When I was young, I always dreamed about being a hacker, growing up watching movies such as “The Matrix” or “Hackers”. I used to imagine myself quickly typing lines upon lines of code onto my computer screen.
Despite initially studying marketing and being inclined towards that career path, I swiftly began to move towards web project management, thinking one day I would be able to pursue my dream career and become a developer. I tried to work on very technical projects and teach myself on websites such as “Code Academy” or “Le Site du Zero” (“OpenClassroom” for the older people). The main problem that I used to encounter with these websites was that I had some difficulties when trying to understand the global view about programming. Overall, even after finishing a tutorial I still felt like I couldn’t create something by myself.
After browsing the internet, I came across Le Wagon! For me, the Bootcamp format was an ideal solution because the training seemed fast and complete.
Le Wagon really was an amazing experience. It gives you the chance to meet so many people who all come from different places.
If I had to sum up my experience, I would say that:
- I liked the teaching as it gave us an overview of the creation of a web product, from the initial product design to its development
- There was also a good overview of the Full Stack development (front-office and back-office)
- Both the teachers and teaching assistants were really kind as they took time to really help us complete exercises and to make sure we fully understood the key notions and ideas
- The environment was great between everyone (you must be prepared to drink a lot of beers during the 2 months!)
At the end of my time at Wagon, there was the impression that you could learn absolutely anything and create any kind of web product. I must admit that at times the pace of learning was very intense and there were times where I felt a little bit lost, but you have to really trust their teaching methods and ways of learning because at the end you will finally be able to thoroughly understand all of the different concepts.
As for now, I am a Full Stack Developer at a start-up company and I love what I do. However, the lines of code don’t roll across my screen at a fast speed as they do in the movies! I still have a lot to learn, but I am happy to have had the chance to change my career path all thanks to Le Wagon.
I have been working as a management consultant for the past 3 years, but my dream in life is to become an entrepreneur and launch my own startup. Choosing to attend Le Wagon was probably one of the best decisions of my life.
Why Le Wagon? Le Wagon’s mission is indeed to “bring technical skills to creative people”. This is exactly what I was looking for as a beginner and as a wanna-be entrepreneur. Le Wagon’s bootcamp by far exceeded my expectations for a thousand reasons, the main 3 being:
- Top-tier faculty: amazingly passionate and competent people. At Le Wagon you are never alone and teachers and TAs always challenge you to exit your comfort zone and reach the solution on your own, always helping you though when you are having a tough time. This allows you to really become independent as a developer, and indeed – one moth from the bootcamp’s end - almost 100% of the classmates who were looking for a job are now working as developers! Teachers and TAs are extremely patient and what I loved is that they thoroughly explain the rationale behind every concept – so that it sticks in your mind! Never have I met an amazing environment of competent, talented, ambitious, yet friendly people as at Le Wagon – it’s the place to be!
- Incomparable global network: Le Wagon can boast a global network of alumni and faculty that is really something other bootcamps do not have. This is excellent, because I know I may probably find the co-founder for my startup in the Le Wagon network and that I can reach out (indeed I have done already) to teachers and TA if I need advice on coding projects I am working on, even after the bootcamp.
I am infinitely grateful to Le Wagon. Le Wagon has been my springboard to acquire the precious technical skills I need to realize my startup’s app MVP and a strong developer mindset.
Interactive designer for 22 years, I could experience and see evolve the tech environment through many angles. The trades related to tech industry are constantly changing, some disappear, others endure and segment themselves, which is why it is important to maintain a constant technological watch and to train as often as possible - lately I chose to follow the Bootcamp Le Wagon in Bordeaux because I had not to miss the techy Wagon train that goes straight to the future!
This training, however intensive, and whatever its level of apprehension of the code, allows any motivated entrepreneurs to obtain a teaching rich in new ideas to develop its activity. And what's more satisfying than discovering the secrets of web development from a team of caring and passionate teachers.
Matthieu Dubois - Designer UX-UI - Le Wagon Alumni Batch#191
I’d been in China about 10 years before joining Le Wagon working as an in-house investment banker for Chinese companies investing abroad before I decided to take a break to assess my prospects. During that year I invested in a startup, focused my learning on new areas and dabbled a little in coding with no meaningful purpose.
I actually went to see a demo day, more out of curiosity than anything, was really impressed by the products presented, and my decision was made. I wanted to join Le Wagon.
The course format is well suited to self-learners, mornings are lectures followed by a series of exercises that complement and extend the core curriculum.
It’s tough, it’s long hours, it’s a lot of material but it’s definitely worth it. You learn so much and you really learn to push yourself to make and break things. It sets you up to continue learning about coding and to explore new technologies.
There will be days where it’s just overwhelming but you are not alone. My batch was awesome we were 28 and we had so much fun, many of us formed close friendships. The whole Le Wagon crew, the teachers, the TAs and every guest speaker really contributed to making it a fantastic 9 weeks.
As a testament to the power of the Le Wagon, our group submitted our final project to a pitching competition before we had written any code. In just 10 days we finalised the MVP, drafted a business plan and model and were able to pitch against much more established startups. We didn't win for a whisker and the confidence and encouragement we received was amazing. People we impressed and shocked of what we were able to achieve in just 10 days considering where we stood at the beginning of the camp.
The week after the camp is a little difficult. The adjustment is tough, many of us are meeting and discussing and evaluating options and I think the staff and TAs feel the end of camp adjustment as much as the students. They are here with us providing amazing support and valuable advice. It's like a mini after camp!!
If you are considering it, just do it. Don’t hesitate, you won’t regret it! It will change your outlook, understanding of web technology, coding and yourself.
Hi! My name is Philipp. I studied product and concept-design in Germany which led me to score cool roles as a UX designer and a globe-trotting consultant in Agile frameworks including Scrum and Kanban. Nevertheless, I felt that I needed to understand coding so I could better communicate with developers in my team and sometimes I also wanted to turn my own web ideas and concepts into reality. That’s why I decided to quit my job and join Le Wagon in Bali, and unsurprisingly, the decision paid off right away with a new role as an Advisor for the company Blackboat in Berlin when I returned back home! The Bootcamp was efficient and precise: the Le Wagon teachers and learning platform give you exactly what you need to learn to build a complex web app in a 45 day bootcamp. Even though I worked in the tech industry, I was starting as a coding newbie. I progressed over each day through the daily topics, morning lectures, the vast number of exercises, and the daily group live code sessions supplemented by flash cards and video preparations in our own time. In the last 10 days of the bootcamp, the repeated success of Le Wagon was proven once again in project Remedium, a blockchain charity donation platform that I had the opportunity to build together with a few camp mates. You can see my presentation in Batch #128 Demo Day. And that’s not all! In fact, the chance to join a Bootcamp in Bali is rather unique because the experience of the island made our Bootcamp-journey more relaxing and enjoyable. I don't know any code camps where you code from a terrace with a view of the ocean which I also enjoyed surfing in. The adventures around the islands at the weekends with my new found friends made working together through the long coding days so much easier and not least, fun and memorable. I also did the math and i am convinced that a Bootcamp in Berlin or London would have cost me the same if you compare cost of living. To conclude, now that I’m back home and starting a new exciting career, I can put my hand on heart and say that Le Wagon has been a career-changing experience and probably one of the best I have had in my life. I’m really grateful for the incredible journey and the people i met there. Dirk and Audrey are incredible Hosts and you can feel that they put their hearts in this bootcmap. I cannot recommend more this experience to everyone - and if you have any questions, hit me up on LinkedIn. Cheers!
I completed the 9 week Le Wagon bootcamp that started in June 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal.
It totally surpassed my expectations - I learnt far more than I thought I would, I made awesome friends and the alumni community was stronger and more global than I expected (I live in Sydney now and meet up with Le Wagoners here and everyone is super helpful on the alumni Slack channels).
I didn't do the course to change careers - I've been in finance for 10 years and I enjoy my job. I did the course because I wanted to create things and follow through on ideas. I love coding so much now that I am nonetheless contemplating a career change - either way it will be part of my life from here on.
My advice - (1) Ruby and web-apps are probably the best place to start. I was considering a mobile-app centered bootcamp but I'm glad I did Le Wagon fullstack because it empowered me with a solid understanding of a range of coding skills and concepts so it's easy for me to learn new languages and platforms. (2) Speak to alumni and the drivers of the location you are considering - the culture in the Lisbon bootcamp was perfect for me and I chose to study there specifically (I was living in New York at the time). Having a really good batch with enthusiastic teachers helps you get through the program (which can be intense at times - you have to learn super fast).
As a CEO of a new born companie in tech, i decided to attend the first batch of Le Wagon to improve my tech skills. 5 years later, it helps me to make better tech decisions on a daily basis, to understand and better work with the developer team. More than just teaching you how to write code, Le Wagon brings you the developer mindset you need to better understand the world today. Plus the community is super powerful. Life changer.
I was working in the operations team of a tech startup when I decided to join Le Wagon in Milan (batch #181) and it turned out being of my best decisions.
In my previous role, I was constantly surrounded by developers and somehow fascinated by what they were doing. I did not have any relevant coding experience or knowledge at that time (I graduated in Management Engineer) and little by little I started to feel limited because of that, while my curiosity was keeping on increasing day after day.
Changing career path is never an easy decision but at Le Wagon I felt supported from the very beginning and most important, I felt part of its huge, international and talented community from day one.
The energy and passion of the teachers are contagious, and their support and advise during the lectures and the final project invaluable. The course is intense, and you have to deal with a huge amount of information and new concepts every day, but the lectures and exercises are well structured and tailored so that you don't feel lost or overwhelmed.
And in case this happens, you have access to all the resources and help you might need to go back on track. You won't remain behind!
I am fully satisfied with my journey at Le Wagon, and I now feel confident to start a new chapter of my life as a developer.
After the 9 weeks there, I can do nothing but compliment the whole experience. From day one I saw how beautifully diverse our classroom was, not only in culture but in knowledge of the field. Some had already worked as developers, and others were completely new to coding altogether. It was clear from the first lesson that our teachers were not just there for a paycheck, but legitimately cared that you understood the topics, as many of them have gone through the same experience. The focus of Le Wagon, I felt, was not to just teach you how to code, but how to think like a coder. Answers were never given to you (despite the occasional pleading). Instead a teacher would sit down with you and you would both brainstorm together, as it often is in a real-life setting. You learn to be open with your confusions and questions, and to ask around and discuss with teachers and classmates. This is something many classrooms wish to have, but I have never seen it done as successfully as at Le Wagon. The days are long, and the challenges are challenging, and as a result you really get to know your classmates and teachers. I’ve made very close friends in this bootcamp, and I still stay in touch with them, despite living on the other side of the globe.
During those nine weeks can confidently say I know Ruby on Rails, and have built several applications using the skills I learned in this course. I can also tell you that I had a great many stories and adventures that will stay with me forever. Doing the course did feel like that first step I needed towards my new life and career. I will deeply miss Le Wagon, and recommend it to anyone who’s looking for that first step towards their future.
Never thought it would be possible to learn so much in only 9 weeks. Never touched code before the bootcamp but given the growing demand for people with any kind of proficiency in code I decided to get my feet wet and give it a go. The teachers were very helpful and were always great at explaining concepts whenever we were stuck in the coding chalenges. I can't believe I went from 0 to being able to build a full-stack web application in 9 weeks. I highly recommend this course for anyone who is looking to learn hands on programming without much prior experience. You will be amazed by your growth within 9 weeks, though you should also be ready to put in the work.
After graduating in business three years ago, I started working as a project manager on innovative services and digital products for large companies. Working every day with designers and developers I realized that I lacked some technical knowledge, I felt like I was always asking dumb questions, or not understanding how much work was needed to build something.
I decided to go to Le Wagon to improve my technical skills…it was the best decision ever!
Le Wagon is an incredible experience. You learn so much in 9 weeks and meet amazing people.
What I liked the most was the classes' practical approach and exercises.
Every morning you learn new things that you apply in the afternoon to solve problems, even on the first day.
The lead teachers are always available, and you still can get help from the teaching assistants who are there every day.
The level is regularly increasing, you start with easy concepts then to building and launching a web app in the last weeks.
There is also an excellent mindset between all students, really friendly, we all helped each other a lot.
Almost every day we would have lunch together, and Friday dinner every
The alumni community is active as well, probably the best Slack on earth!
Le Wagon doesn’t make you a computer science engineer, but it definitively gives you the keys to keep learning and start a new career as a developer.
It is a robust and intensive nine-week bootcamp. You feel tired at the end of the day to the extent that your brain hurts, but the learning experience is so great. It is like you grow a new coding brain in 9 weeks.
I would do it again!
I am very thankful for my time at Le Wagon, and for the opportunities it has opened up for me. Whether you want to become a junior developper or as an entrepreneur launch your own project, or work as a freelance : Le Wagon team does everything they can to help get you achieve your goals 🎯
Teachers and lovely staff strive to create and maintain a unique environment where students can learn new technologies with the best practices and hone their programming skills in the best conditions 🌿 The courses are intense; be prepared to work hard. I learned a lot, very quickly and pair programming was a blast.
The best part about going to Le Wagon is the amazing group of students and the robust alumni community that you get to be part of, it’s the perfect place to meet brilliant people ✨After the Bootcamp you’re still connected to everyone through Slack.
I Would highly highly recommend Le Wagon to anyone wanting a career in tech, or anyone who want to build and launch new products with a lean startup mindset. If you are still indecisive : JUST DO IT.
After 5 years of business school I graduated with a specialization in luxury marketing. My internships led me to work in project and digital project management. after a while, I felt that something was missing. I needed to DO something, not just supervise or manage. I wanted to see the result of my work at the end of the day, for the best and the worst.
This 9 weeks at Le Wagon went so fast. It’s hard to realize how much knowledge you can assimilate in such a small amount of time. Every small victories leading to a urge to learn more. Also I think all the magic doesn’t come only from the learning thirst. Humanly speaking, it’s a blast of fresh air, It’s really amazing to be with all that people with different background, age, and share the same objectives.
I like to drive projects from their beginning to their very end and used to consider my missions through a business and a marketing vision, Le Wagon gave me the technical view I needed. I quickly had opportunities and had to decide if I’d rather work as a Product manager or as a Developper.
Today, I’m a working as Front-End Developper.
My name is Stephane, and I’ll be 52 years old in a week. I have done many things in my life so far, including rock climbing (climbing and teaching), playing in a few bands for a number of years (none which you would have heard of), doing live sound for concerts for the last 20 years, teaching Qìgong... For the past 7 years, I’ve been studying and training in Chinese Medecine and Martial Arts.
Last spring, I had to make a decision about what I wanted to do, money-wise, for the next 15 years of my life. And I remembered how much fun I had a year ago, when I was setting up my girlfriend’s e-commerce store and needed to learn a bit of HTML and CSS to do so. The magic of Code! Being able to create stuff just like that was fascinating.
So I looked into programs and schools and found Le Wagon. Before investing time and money into a boot camp, I needed to make sure I was going in the right direction, and so I did the Build a Website from Scratch course on Codecademy. One night, looking up from my code and realizing 6 hours had passed by without me noticing, I knew I had found my new career.
Meeting Guillaume and seeing how serious Le Wagon is about what they do convinced me. And I have to say, the boot camp has been one of the greatest, most intense, knowledge-crammed, frustrating, elating and most awesome experience in my life! Yes, it is tough. Yes, it is confronting and yes, you’ll get discouraged (especially at the end of week 3).
But if you keep the pace, if you do your flash cards every day, if you gear up for a marathon and not a sprint, you’ll get through it. And I’ll bet you’ll feel extremely proud of your achievements on demo day (once the presentations are over). You won’t believe what you’ll be able to create after such a short period of time.
Right now, I am working on my first (and quite imposing) freelance project: migrating an e-commerce store to a new platform, setting up an LMS class and grouping all of it into a Rails application. Lots of time spent on Google so far ;0).
I'm also currently a TA for batch #188 in Montreal, a great opportunity I am deeply grateful for. Happy coding!
I was reading a lot of good things but when the program started I was simply amazed. I did not expect such an ideal organization of the learning process. The platform we used during the bootcamp is really great and helps you to focus and find all the information in one place.
The educational process is a perfect balance of lectures and practical assignments as well as individual and group work. Which means the lectures are kept short, about 1,5 hours in the morning, which leaves the rest of the day for hands-on exercises. Also, you work in a buddy-system and collaborate with your classmates a lot, most of the time you are solving the challenges individually and that’s where the learning is happening. Of course, always under the guidance and with the help of cool and talented teachers who are there for you whenever you need them.
The last 3 weeks of the course we worked in teams building a working prototype and definitely gathered all the necessary skills to work independently in the future. Simply impossible to obtain this kind of knowledge studying by yourself online.
My new professional life started from the first day of the bootcamp and now with the necessary tools, I can continue by myself. At the time writing this it’s been 2 months since I graduated and I’m still learning every day. I work on my own projects and also became a co-founder of a small web-company.
The bootcamp not only teaches development skills but also boosts your entrepreneurship. It was really challenging but above all encouraging and rewarding.
And two words about Bali – it’s a magical island and my new Love. I hope to return soon and not only once.
Seriously, the only bootcamp that consistently ranks as amazing. The teachers, the people, the locations, are all world class.
I was debating with a few American bootcamps, but this one has not only a core focus on programming competency, but entrepreneurship. There are literally people creating businesses right after the camp.
Also, a place to meet some really interesting, cool people that are on a similar journey as well. I made friends with three of them specifically and I would definitely call them some of my best friends now.
Easiest choice I ever made.
After graduating in 2013 from an audiovisual school, I worked on film sets and in radio as a sound-engineer. For a few years, it had been difficult to find a job, I then decided to change career. Coming from a technical background, and always eager to learn new things, I turned to coding. A friend of mine had told me about Le Wagon, highlighting the rapidity with which the program trains you to a new job. The bootcamp had an immediate impact on me, not only because of the rich and intense curriculum, the quality of the innovative teaching methods, the people you meet and the community you join. Le Wagon was one of the best experiences of my life. They met the crazy challenge to demystify coding and to turn people who never wrote a line of code into developers.
I finished Le Wagon on a Friday and the following week, I found my first freelance job in web development for 2 months at Schoolab. I then got a full-time offer as a fullstack developer at Scalia, a tech startup launched by 2 Le Wagon alumni, incubated at StationF in Paris.
6 months ago, I would never have imagined going this far in such a short amount of time !
I am a business graduate and worked as a finance professional before entering Le Wagon. Tech-related work always interested me and I tried to pick up bits and pieces about coding, but never really had the perseverance and wholistic knowledge resources to really get started in tech. Building a website requires knowledge about so many programming languages, frameworks, and concepts that I was never really able to bring all the pieces together.
A friend of me told me about Le Wagon and the learning style seemed to be perfect for me. Le Wagon has an intranet with resources that help during and after the bootcamp. The bootcamp is built around this intranet and I learned how to solve technical issues with and without help from instructors.
After the bootcamp, I was able to build complete websites with all sorts of functionality, design features, and user interactivity. As I started a data science degree program after the bootcamp, I benefited from the software development skills that the bootcamp provides to students. Now, I am not only confident in web development, but I can also transfer these skills to other software development-related fields.
Our "batch" (that is the bunch of people that did the bootcamp with me at the same time in Berlin) was international to more than 50% and we spoke English 99% of the time. Everyone had a different background and almost everyone had a big career change coming up. After the bootcamp, I stayed in touch with many fellow students and we help each other looking for jobs and finding tech talent.
I can recommend this bootcamp to anyone who wants to learn web development in a very short time.
