I have always been interested in technology, but with a background in design I thought that maybe it wasn't for me, however after completing the 9 week bootcamp wit Le Wagon I was proven wrong. It was an incredible, eye opening, challenging and rewarding experience. I realised that there is so much opportunity to be creative in coding and to create a working fully functioning app from scratch was amazing. The bootcamp also teaches to you to think in a different way, and pushes you beyond your comfort zone, but truly teaches you how to learn and keep learning. The teachers, the staff and the whole experience was beyond what I imagined.
During my gap year, I decided to learn to code. While learning I felt demotivated because I was doing it alone so I decided to join Le Wagon! As I expected, I had students and professors by my side that allowed to learn more and faster ! I totally recommend it, let's go :D
Before Le Wagon I was a postdoctoral researcher in science. Seeing the growing field of technology and startups and the simultaneously rising demand for developers, I decided to join the Le Wagon Bootcamp. Before Le Wagon I already had basic experience in programming and therefore I was having doubts if the Bootcamp might not be demanding enough. However, I was challenged from the beginning to the end and it was hard work to prepare the lectures and get the exercises done.
That said, there is no problem to get successfully through the Bootcamp and deliver great final projects without any prior programming knowledge. This works because the Le Wagon curriculum and teachers adjust very well to the different pre-knowledge of the students. The program is well structured and all programming fundamentals are taught before going into the development of web applications.
Most importantly the whole Le Wagon team of teachers and assistants spent a great effort on helping the students and make it a great experience for everybody.
Le Wagon prepares the students to work as a developer alone or in a team. I recommend Le Wagon to anybody, who wants to change their career, independently of the professional background.
I started my studies in advertising and graphic design in 2009, doing many courses outside my University to expand my skills in different areas that I consider, at the time, useful for my job and profesional development. Through the years, I start to realize that technology was becoming, really fast, a way of consuming products or services, in EVERY single area and industry. No matter what you need, there is an app or a web to solve your problem; and if it doesn't exist: YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU, so DEVELOP IT!
Through my years working as a graphic designer freelance, clients were always asking for basic things that nowadays, every company needs: newsletters and a web - just to start. And my first problem was that I wasn't able to take my design into the web. I think and create the sketches from the design perspective, but I was depending on developers to actually code the design and in many occasions, I would found out, that my ideas were really difficult to develop. Not to mention, that I have to depend on their schedule and budget.
When I asume the world is spinning around tech development, I decided to enrole in Le Wagon Bootcamp in Buenos Aires. Even though I had a lot of expectations, they were by far exceeded in the most positive way! I had the opportunity to practice my english, to know a lot of people around the world and know different cultures. It was surprisingly easy to overcome the intensity of two months, of non stop learning and coding, with the excellent group of people who shared this amazing experience with me! The teachers were super patient and positive, especially in the last two weeks where we struggle the time pressure to solve development issues... They were extraordinary good leaders that trust in our skills and were always there for us!
Le Wagon community is really amazing and supportive! :)
A year ago I finished my training at Le Wagon (batch 83). I was looking for a web developer training to learn to code, use APIs, learn to scrape the web, to become a growth hacker. I also wanted to be autonomous and create side projects and why not create a startup one day. There are a lot of bootcamps to learn to code in Paris so I compared them and I chose Le Wagon for several reasons:
- It is a reference training in the startup ecosystem.
- For their “product” culture
- For the network. I have built a network of trusted relationships today thanks to the bootcamp.
I was hired as a growth hacker at the end of the batch in a startup accelerator. I was able to practice my skills. A few months after Le Wagon, I continued coding and I created a tool. I launched my own marketing automation tool through what I learned ( www.tribly.co ). The bootcamp has a cost, but it is an investment to do in oneself which is worth it and which is quickly profitable.
Le Wagon is an amazing experience its very challenging. It was a great learning experience and It was very intresting to see the development of apps from developer standpoint. I enjoyed working with the teachers, as an American it was very interesting to see what the world was up to in terms of apps and startups.
I learned how to code in Le Wagon: after 9 weeks of hard work, I’m capable to start a web application from scratch and I never learned so much in so little time. But what really amazes me is how I was able to do it: I learned through teamwork -- not only by attending classes and completing daily challenges but doing so with help from and helping people with different skills and background. I thought I’d be developing mostly hard skills, but I added soft skills to my abilities and now I feel ready to lead and teach.
Thanks to the people I met in Amsterdam, I’m currently TAing in Le Wagon Sao Paulo and preparing to be a teacher assistant in Rio de Janeiro, thrilled by seeing other students’ projects and helping them to make beautiful products. Le Wagon gives not only the tools to be a fullstack developer, they also teach how to spread this knowledge creating a great community that executes ideas all around the world -- and I couldn’t be more proud of being a part of it.
I have been living in Japan for 5 years working as an English teacher but teaching myself coding on the side. I tried to switch careers multiple times with no luck until I found Le Wagon in Tokyo.
Teachers are amazing. The program is hands-on with lectures and then building on what you learn through challenges and small projects throughout the day. The teachers take you through the concepts step by step. There are TAs (and the teachers) that help with the day's challenges if you need it. I was an incredible experience and I almost didn't want it to end.
Now, I'm a full-stack developer for a startup in Tokyo. I've built life-long friends through the program and have finally realized my dream to code professional all thanks to Le Wagon!
Le Wagon changed my life completely.
Honestly I couldn’t code really well, but this bootcamp tough me how I can manage my life if I really want which anyone didn’t teach me in the school and in my work. Actually it was more important than just only coding. To decide attending the bootcamp wasn’t really easy for me because I had good career and salary in Tokyo. But I just realised sometime we need to decide and make big change in our life otherwise our life will be same level and never learn anything. Now I have more independent mind set and I can manage my life by my self!
After working for a start-up for a couple of years I felt it was time for a change and I wanted to challenge myself by learning something completely new. I love travelling and to have flexibility in a job, so why not learn how to code? I didn’t have any experience in tech or coding at all and after hearing all the great things about Le Wagon Bali, I decided to quit my job and jump in with both feet to become a full stack web developer.
I got straight into the deep end and in the first few weeks I got to learn, amongst other things, Ruby, SQL and OOP which started coming together when we learnt the Rails framework. Not having any prior experience, I was afraid that I would end up thinking coding was too technical for me, or that I would not be good at it. By the time it got to the project weeks of the Bootcamp, I was really impressed with myself for being able to code real web-apps. Before the bootcamp I never imagined this possible.
After two weeks of non-stop coding for our project SkillSwap, we were able to finish on time and present it on Demo Day to the local teach community and digital nomads (watch the videoclip!). This is the feature I like the most about Le Wagon. It is very product-oriented and I believe it is quite unique in that sense. Not only can you be a junior developer when you graduate, you are also trained to be an entrepreneur and product owner to pitch a product, manage product design and project constraints, conduct business presentations, with the aim of launching your idea to the market. The feeling is incredibly rewarding and empowering.
I never imagined I would like coding this much and so will you.
As young graduate from a french business school and after several experiences within financial fields, I felt a strong attraction towards the digital world and entrepreneurship. However, I realized that I would not go far without any basic knowledge in coding and digital skills.
After great 9 very (very!) intensive weeks of learning how to code with Le Wagon in Lisbon, I gained much more than what I expected! Before this experience, I had no clue about anything in the coding area...
From a practical point of view, I am amazingly surprised by the level of understanding I have reached over such a short time, not only about pure coding, but also about the overall coding environment, from UX to web hosting. Le Wagon‘s program is very well built with a gradual rise in difficulty and a strong follow-up from the teaching team, that will fit to everybody, no matter their level.
Attending this coding bootcamp was also a great opportunity for me to meet and work with very interesting and smart people coming from different areas and making the whole experience even more rewarding.
I can only recommend this training and can assure you that you will get more than what you expect :)
I've been in IT for 20 years but far from the Web world (yes, there is a lot of stuff going on out of the www as well). Tired of all the burocracy of big groups and the never ending projects, I decided to look for something more dynamic. Then started looking for a web development bootcamp. At the beginning of my career I was a developer and I remembered how much I enjoyed coding, so decided to update my knowledge and move on to the web. I was looking for somethig dynamic, pragmatic and useful right away. No time for 6 months training plus time doing interships in companies. Had had my share of big companies.
I checked some other trainings and bootcamps in the Marseille area and Le Wagon spoke to me right away. Just by looking at their website you can see is dynamic. Being a globtrotter at heart and seeing that the bootcamp runs in so many countries just clicked.
Then the program. Training sessions in the morning, then practice all day long, then life code at the end of the day. Then two weeks developing a project. A lifely dynamic involved in the startup world. I assited then to one of their Demo Days and it just felt right. That's what I wanted to do, that's the bootcamp I want to join. It took a few months until I could finally join but I was not dissapointed at all.
We were lucky enough in our promo to hit it off right away. 14 people, from 21 to 59 years old, very different backgrounds and experiences and so enriching. Later on, seeing other promos, I think that happens in every promo, in different ways, but the ambiance of Le Wagon just makes that in every promo there is a bit of a (temporary) family spirit going on.
Ah, yes, we coded as well! I just had a blast every single day. It was hard, future Wagoners beware. It was exahausting but so worth it. The first week I was so excited and my brain was absorbing so many things that I could barely get to sleep at night. By the middle of the bootcamp you are exahusted, you start to beleive that you are not going to make it... there are ups and downs, but everyone tells you to hold on to it... wich you do and by the end everything is worth.
The pedagory is good, being in IT I already knew many concepts, though not the languages, and the way things are explained and chained it just makes sense and everything ends up by clicking and fitting together.
Teachers are excellent, some have a lot of experience in the field, some others are Le Wagon's alumni. All of them are passionate and patient. They know how to teach and help.
And then the Demo Day. It is so exciting to be able to show to about a hundred people what you just did with your team. We could not beleive we were able to do all of that in only 2 weeks. Only 9 weeks before we didn't know anything about it and there we were, showing to the world our project.
When you finish your promo there is a bit of an "orphan" feeling, after all you are spliting with your (temporary) family and that is always difficult. But there are ways to work it out. Co working space, being a TA (which I am doing), or even becoming a teacher yourself later on (which I hope to do some day).
Le Wagon has s become part of my life now, I go to the co-working space, I make TA every now and then and the whole experience keeps up to my expectations.
Hesitating about which way to go? Well, my advise is go to Le Wagon, hold on to the rails (pun intended) and enjoy! You won't regret it!
During and after my graduation I worked at financial related jobs. Because it was not my piece of cake I decided to go abroad to get some experience and study English. And just one year ago I discovered the world of coding.
I made a lot of research, read a lot of reviews. First of all, I wanted some affordable coding bootcamp in Europe. Second, Le Wagon offers to build something real as the final project. So, it seemed to me as the best choice. And do not forget the wonderful weather, nice beaches and amazing food in Barcelona.
I still can't believe it's over. Even though it was pretty fast track, I thought it would be even worse - more difficult or impossible to understand. I will miss it. Coding is awesome. Now it is time to do so as alumni :) - continuing work on our final project Eatamina and deepen my knowledge. I believe coding open you new word with so many opportunities.
ALL YOU NEED IS CODE. Thank you guys!
I joined Le Wagon's Batch 6 in Paris (January – March 2015) and since then, I have been building a web agency while becoming a teacher at Le wagon on the side.
Why Le Wagon?
I see 3 main reasons why I joined Le Wagon's FullStack program at first:
1) Trying online tutorials, I always had the same outcome: "How to switch from theory to practice?"
2) I found it very hard to launch a web-based business without coding skills or without the ability to understand developers
3) I wanted to test my ideas from scratch without loosing my mind in the World Wide Web of Ideas (this is something many non-technical profiles do when thinking of a business and it often leads to frustration and to giving up).
That seemed to fit Le Wagon's mission. After meeting the core team, I decided to join the program.
The Full-stack Program
This is a 9-week intensive program where you'll learn coding best practices and develop your technical mindset. One of the main strengths of their program is the balance between teaching best practices, bringing support to students and fostering autonomy and curiosity.
- You spend enough time to learn the basics during lectures or when cracking Le Wagon's challenges.
- You learn how to be autonomous, use powerful tools and have an efficient workflow.
- You are challenged but also supported to ensure you understand the core concepts.
After 6 weeks of training, you build an Airbnb-like platform within a team and you put it in production.
The last two weeks are dedicated to working on your own personal project (or you can work on a project of a team mate), being advised and assisted by le Wagon's mentors.
Rediscover the pleasure of learning
At the beginning, I was one of those to say I'd like to learn to code but did not have enough "engineering background". At Le Wagon I had the opportunity to remember that learning a new skill is not always a question of talent.
With strong dedication, commitment and above all, curiosity, you will find your way and leverage Le Wagon's methodology. At Le Wagon, you will not only be guided but also challenged to make the concept yours. Nothing comes free, and to learn anything valuable, you have to fight for it first!
Learn from amazing people
Amazing people with different backgrounds will surround you. The staff carefully select students to create an efficient and fun learning atmosphere.
From the diversity of your buddies, you'll discover a new way of thinking. Not only from engineers that will introduce you to logical structures but also from litterary profiles who will show you that sometimes efficient wording is worth tons of logical conditions.
The staff is amazing and they are always challenging themselves to improve their program. After a few batches as a Teaching Assistant and then as a Teacher, I can tell that from their 145-batch experience they have built a great methodology and a strong education platform (that I still use!).
Life After Le Wagon
The scope is huge. Lots of your classmates have an entrepreneurial background and will keep working on their project, follow teammates they have met or dedicate to new opportunities.
Some want to become developers and will apply to a junior position. Lots of them get cool offers because they are ready to learn, be productive on their very first day and bring diversity to dev teams.
Others will apply for Product Manager positions and leverage on their dual skills in business / code to collaborate efficiently with developers.
First, I personally decided to start as a freelancer and build apps for clients but also provide them with MVP services, to help identify their product and have a lean roadmap. It was an opportunity to keep on learning every day while I fulfil my entrepreneurial thirst.
Now I have turned this freelance activity into a web agency. We are specialized in digitizing corporate processes. We design & develop simple solutions to complex corporate problems.
I’d like to preface this review by saying that I’m neither a “gusher” nor a “joiner.” I’m rarely openly impressed or complimentary; even less often do I place myself in situations where I am forced to interact with a bunch of strangers.
With that out of the way, I’d like to genuinely & uncharacteristically assert that my time at Le Wagon Barcelona was one of the most positive, self-actualizing, & unforgettable experiences of my life.
I, like perhaps a lot of you, was very nervous when considering a boot camp. I was already pretty far along in my first career and didn’t have the time or resources to pursue another bachelor’s degree. My fears with opting for a boot camp existed not only because I had practically zero coding experience, but also because I’d read horror stories about others investing in different boot camps only to come out feeling as though they didn’t know anything and ultimately being unprepared to enter the workforce or to start projects on their own. Luckily, the only thing I’d had to fear was fear itself. And semicolons.
Le Wagon was challenging in a way that I could never have expected nor that I can even try to articulate, but for every obstacle there was overwhelming support from both staff and other classmates. Aside from learning relevant and up-to-date subjects in a very organized, gamified way, I developed some amazing relationships with the people in my batch and the instructors; over a month later there are still some people that speak with on a daily basis! And - despite being extremely prone to imposter syndrome - I have found myself very confident in what I have learned at Le Wagon, so much so that I am currently working on my own freelance projects, personal website, and business plan for an app I’d like to develop.
So as someone who does not do this (no, seriously, I never do it), I cannot help but recommend Le Wagon if you’re looking to get a start in web development. The curriculum, learning environment, & ongoing support networks are truly unparalleled and I promise you will not be disappointed.
Le Wagon is amazing. It was a great it experience, it gave me the fundamentals and helped me to become a better problem solver and exposed me to the world of Software Engineering. As an American residing in the San Francisco Bay Area there are a plethora of coding bootcamps but they are 6x times as much as Le Wagon. Le Wagon gave me the most value for the amount of money I spent, I felt it was one of the best decsions I have made overall.
I was batch #02. It’s seems a long time ago now !
2014 you remember ?
At the time I wasn’t even aware how this bootcamp would change my life forever.
As a filmmaker I was even convinced that coding was not only a boring activity but also something very rigid. I couldn’t be more wrong.
What I learned at Le Wagon gave me super powers. The way they teach programming challenged my brain. Sometimes I even felt like I won’t make it, but the staff was awesome and they never let me down. At first, I struggled to understand the point and seeing the big picture. Learning, ruby, object oriented programming, building an ORM or an MVC from scratch wasn’t making no sense to me. It was like getting LEGO blocks without knowing what they would be useful for. But the staff was like they knew what they were doing, so I stayed confident and eventually a few weeks later I started to experiment a series of thoses orgasmic AHA moments.
Then I realised how creative programming could be.
Now, I’m a digital nomad. I live in a 12m long bus. Working fulltime remotely for a french EdTech company. I do frontend and backend stuff. I really love coding and the freedom this lifestyle gave me.
Sure if you come at Le Wagon you will learn to code the hard way but this is the right way.
I’m a high school student and I decided to study abroad in America. I graduated my junior high school on March but my high school starts from September so I had plenty of time to do something what I like. That’s why I joined in Le Wagon’s programming boot camp.
The first three weeks was the hardest for me, but the teachers taught me very carefully and were always ready to help. And as I continue learning coding, my skill became better and better. In the last project, I think I could contribute as a front-end programmer.
I think I need more practice for back-end stuff. But in the last project, I think I could contribute as a front-end programmer and Le Wagon changed my life dramatically.
Before Le Wagon I was working as an apprenticeship coordinator in the construction industry. I was managing up to 45 apprentices. My partner is a data analyst so he invited me to start doing online courses and I was hooked. I knew I wanted to make a career in coding so decided to join Le Wagon. It was the best decision I could make! The staff is friendly, supportive and fun; they made it so easy to get through the cursus. As an end project we worked on a user-friendly timesheet system to help out my old company!
I have applied for the 42 coding school in Paris and was very thankful to have my background in Ruby to help me in that application process!
I recently finished batch 153 at Barcelona. And i have just one thing to say about that: it worthed a lot. The course is very well structured and make our path easier. I hadn´t any background with code so in the very begining I was scared about my capability to learn code in just 9 weeks. But after I finished the bootcamp I´m very confident about what I learned and now I have one new challenge: change the world.
I started Le Wagon feeling like an old man and now i have many plans as a kid. If you want to be greater than you are know, don´t hesitate subscribe at Le Wagon.
I love tech, but I can’t code. That in a nutshell was the reason that got me to Le Wagon in Bali in April. Tech has always fascinated me and not being able to code bothered me a lot in my professional life as a software implementation consultant.
In just two months at Le Wagon, I learned how to code, how code works, how to transform my ideas into a web app and how to collaborate as a team of developers. I have to say that I had high expectations out of the camp but what I learned actually went beyond what I could have hoped for.
What impressed me ever since the first day of the camp was the online platform offered by Le Wagon and how it is set up, with lectures, tons of exercises, flashcards, videos and a lot of functions available to make the learning process faster and easier. All this incredible learning material, together with the huge enthusiasm and experience of the teachers who were always willing to solve any questions and clear up any confusion, made the camp a truly comprehensive, well-honed learning experience. Watch my presentation video of the project my team built - Open Space of Batch #149 to see what I am talking about. What also undoubtedly "made" the experience was the sea view from the classroom terrace and the chilled living experience you can find in Bali. I didn't want to leave!
But sadly I had to leave and since I got back to run an online academy at a global IT consultancy firm, I haven't looked back - Le Wagon has definitely increased my competencies and unquestionably given me a ton of useful skills that I can apply to my daily work or any tech projects that I decide to undertake. I can now proudly call myself a coder.
I’m Michael, I am 29 years old and I got a Master’ Degree in physics (research oriented) in 2014. After that I decided to travel the world before starting my career but this experience totally changed my mind about physics and what I wanted to do. I always had a lot of different ideas in my head but I never knew where to start to make them alive (especially when the technical part begins). The idea of integrating a coding school was running in my mind and Le Wagon appeared to be one of the most effective so I did Le Wagon Montréal.
Those nine weeks of coding were an amazing experience. Although the first weeks were very hard and challenging I discovered a new way to see things. The content of the courses is very comprehensive and adapted to all backgrounds in both backend and frontend fields.
If you choose Le Wagon you will learn to code of course but not only, you’ll also learn how to launch your idea from the design to the pitch which is a useful skill if you want to open your own company!
Le Wagon is also a great human experience as everyday you work with a new classmate. During the last three weeks you’ll learn how to work as a team on a project using all the knowledge you’ve just learnt and also how to use git which is a powerful team working tool.
I’m currently working as a teacher assistant at le Wagon Montreal to help students with their daily challenges.
I would definitely recommend you to do this bootcamp for the teaching quality, their huge tech network and finally because the mindset there rocks!
The meeting with the Wagon was for me important in my career. From the first moments I understood that I could be confident structured pedagogy, effective, thought, progressive, so reassuring, all in a beautiful, spacious in the heart of Marseille.
Be part of the Batch 141 Marseille feel to belong to a strong community, know that we will be able to work together, to exchange, to bring, that the wagon does not stop at the end of the training. It's a great human adventure and I loved the shared moments! exit climbing in the creeks, memorable football match at the stadium!
I have experienced this regular rhythm that alternates between course and pair programming and I have seen day after the knowledge is consolidated. Intensive work, and also time to regain energy: yoga hours. At Wagon we take care of us!
If you are motivated to learn, discover among available, competent, creative people Go for it!
Le wagon changed my life, it was on of the best academic experience i ve done. The courses are intense and you're learning new stuff everyday but you don't feel the time passing. The driver in Milano is great and managed to do a lot of things for us student that a simple teacher wont do.
After Le wagon i found a job in the digital world very quickly and im happier now in my everyday job thanks to le wagon.
My brother is a programmer and has been telling me for the past 12 years to start learning to code. Right. So I could have learned to code years ago but would I have liked it as much as I do now??
I attended Le Wagon in Tel Aviv Batch #150. Before that I worked for 3 years in a marketing company as an affiliate manager, and finally decided to quit. It was the right time to look for a new direction, to learn something new that I will love doing. I suddenly gave a second thought to learning to code. I started a few online courses but it wasn’t enough. I felt like I needed a learning environment.
After 4 months of self-learning, hours spent in coffee shops with friends, more Netflix that I could ever watch and numerous researches about coding courses, I stumbled upon Le Wagon website. I watched videos on Youtube about project pitches and I was very impressed by the result after only 2 months. After checking all the possible reviews - all very good - I decided to apply. My advice: do not waste your time and go to Le Wagon even if you have no skills whatsoever in coding.
In the first few weeks of the bootcamp, it’s hard but the teachers and TAs are super clear, really helpful and thorough. The lessons are super clear. Every day you get to practice what you’ve learned the same morning via multiple exercises. On top of that, you get a Live Code session at the end of the day that helps the knowledge acquired sink in. Towards the end of the bootcamp, you also have 2 projects to build in teams. My team and I created a project called www.CoinTrail.io, a platform that helps you track your portfolio across any exchanges. We are still working on it!
To sum it up, my experience with Le Wagon was a life changing one. I’ve learned in two months more that I would have alone in one year. I have met wonderful people from all around the world, from teachers to students. I’ve learned to work in teams, under pressure (get ready for the Final Project!!). Le Wagon gives you great tools to learn: video lectures, challenges, flashcards, course slides, useful links etc. The best thing is that you still have access to all of it once you’ve finished! As I’ve said before, do not waste time! Change your life, start coding!
