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.

Think like a Software engineer

A person who has the big picture on technical issues, who understands what MVC means, knows how to design a database schema or to dissect an HTTP request, and who can start learning a new programming language very quickly.

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!

Students Reviews

What our students think of us

It has provided me something to look forward to each day and a level of empowerment to build the things I think about that no other experience has provided me.
Lcqzyjllnwgwjmephqa8
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
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
The most intense learning experience in my life, sweated blood and tears, and came back from the dead to feel great about all the things I've learnt. Can recommend it to everyone!

Gustavo De Vita

It was 2005 when Gus left a stable job as a Product Manager in São Paulo to follow his dreams in beautiful Barcelona. After obtaining a Master in Digital Arts, he worked as a freelance web-designer until he decided to pick up his career in product management working for online companies. In 2015 he quit his job as a VP Product and took out time to travel and improve his coding skills. Along his sabbatical journey the red van crossed his path. He didn't think twice, jumped behind the wheel and drove Le Wagon to Barcelona.
