What our students think of us
After working for 10 years as a Knowledge and Information Manager, Anne went back to university to follow a degree in ICT. End of 2014, she launched (and since then, drives) Le Wagon Brussels.

Before landing at Le Wagon, Margo worked for three years as a litigation lawyer in Montreal. She discovered the joys of programmation at Le Wagon Brussels which she completed in 2015. Nowadays, when she is not teaching at le Wagon, Margo can be found creating and running STEM workshops for kids and teens at Techies Lab which she co-founded with Anne Collet. Despite her newfound love for all things digital, she still carries around a paper agenda.
After dropping out of business school out of extreme boredom and launching his first education startup, Nicolas decided to up his game by learning how to build websites and applications @ Le Wagon Paris. Now a professional developer, his time is shared between freelance projects, development coaching and his true passion, helping new Le Wagon students on their way to code awesomeness.

Damian sold his first website at age 16 and never stopped doing web development ever since. He dropped out of college at 20 years old and worked as a freelancer while creating online products like hashtagbattle.com. At the age 21, he was the first and youngest teacher in France to share his experience with Rails. Then he moved to Morocco to set up an innovation agency and trained some of the finest engineers in the country. Today, he's an independent consultant still in love with Rails and passionate about making great products.
