Code the startup way.

Learn web-development

Learn all about Ruby, SQL, and the Rails application framework. Develop your front-end skills by using advanced CSS technics (flexbox, grid, animations, etc..) and go deeper into Javascript by learning jQuery and React.js, the library developed by Facebook. More details.

Become a Software engineer

Become more than a developer, a Software engineer. A person who has the big picture on technical issues, who knows what is a MVC, a DB scheme, an HTTP request, and who can learn a new programming language within a week.

Adopt a technical workflow

There's definitely a good way of building tech products and that's what we will teach you. Write your MVP's user stories, draw your database scheme, build a mockup with Sketch, collaborate using pull-requests and code-reviews on Github. That's how successful startups work.

Get the startup toolkit

Heroku, Stripe, Mandrill, Amazon S3, Algolia... We will teach you how to implement all these services to be more efficient at the launch of your new product. Save time, use the right tool for your specific need, that's our developer mindset.

Build your product

No one will teach you how to build web products as we do. Kudoz has just raised 1.2M, Impact is disrupting politics, MaShareEcole school, MedPics healthcare, Krawd marketing... and there are so many other projects in the starting blocks. Check it out for yourself.

Land a new job

Working as a junior developer for Stripe, Molotov, Compass, 55, Save, etc.. They say French engineers are the best ;) We will help you find your dream job, either as a junior dev, product manager or growth hacker. Discuss with any of our alumni to find out more!

I loved it, I was challenged, frustrated, euphoric and down on my rear end some days. I would recommend Le Wagon to anyone with aspirations to code. Just be prepared for an emotional journey.
