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, Algolia, Molotov, Save, Compass, 55, Save, etc.. 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!

Le Wagon was one of the best experiences of my life. They make the impossible possible. I went from a coding newbie to building my own web application.

Le Wagon is THE coding school you should do. period. It's worth the cost. Go and see by yourself.

The perfect coding foundation. The social aspect was just as good and perhaps even better.
Ae9qo5xeuupirozl4gxl
It was awesome, I wish I had done this earlier in life. I recommend Le Wagon to every good soul!
Knbera60kjshxbowa5ko
Intense and above what I expected. When you read that many good reviews on the internet, you usually find it hard to believe. At the end of Le Wagon, you understand why people love it that much.
Y6je5qe1beko9lqdgrnj
If someone asks me where to go for the best web development training in London it has to be Le Wagon. I feel like I have learned in 9 weeks what would normally take 3 years. Excellent syllabus and platform.
Ckb4hx7i4fbnbj2ym0xu

It's a whistle stop tour into the world of full stack programming that if you snooze, you lose, there's no going backwards only forwards into the unknown to give birth to new amazing products with your teammates for life.
Rn7yywrki2kjvmildvbz
It was like learning ruby at the pace of an airplane! We covered so much stuff in only 9 weeks.
Kkplbdsv7lobm0dv7dmj
Intense but so awesome!
Cwk9vv0y3m1kb41xh5mr
It was one of the most exciting and challenging time of my life. I felt that I should have learnt all of that 15 years ago, but this power of internet did not exist by then. So Lewagon was the right thing to do in this very right time.
Nenp9ojnukcttvaxdjny
Challenging, intense, fun, Le Wagon took us from clueless to junior devs in just a few weeks!

Life changing. Learning how to think like a programmer has not only opened so many doors career wise, it has changed the way I think about problem solving generally.

Best ride of my life. Super intense, but I have learned so much, met amazing people. Not sure if I will ever get an experience with such an amazing learning curve.
O2slm8hn1p0jme5gvxd7
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.
Wpjxzilxbgr5gv8hh6yu
By far the best learning experience I ever had.
P5jbjvll7ldvisaalmfd
Intense experience full of love and tears. Will do it again.
Xpdkwliu0oybkmv8rutd
The most rewarding feeling when you reach Demo Day with your shiny new MVP. The teaching staff are extremely talented at passing on their knowledge, their passion and enthusiasm for coding is infectious, and this course was without doubt the right move to progress our startup.
Lmbyl4dy7fkusd42lgnh
Online courses made me feel like I could learn to code. Le Wagon made me code.
