What our students think of us
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.
Coding since the age of 16, Rubèn has experienced different faces of the IT world. Starting from the basics, he grew as a junior developer to become a team leader, taking responsibility for several projects at different startups in Barcelona. He also holds a degree in Psychology (interesting, isn't it? :), and after spending part of his time recruiting the best tech profiles in the Spanish market, he decided to jump into "Le Wagon" to start a new challenge and share his knowledge with amazing people!
From Belgium and passionate about design, UX and new technologies, Amandine has been working for 5 years as web designer in Barcelona. She loves human relationships, bringing people with same skills and values together and helping others to reach their goals. Today she’s joining Le Wagon project based in Barcelona to share her passion with students. Because she believes that future is made by the connection between technology and creative people.
Back when he was 19, Jad founded eTobb, a startup that connects patients & doctors in the middle east. Since then, he's been on a mission to inspire developers, by presenting advanced topics & best practices at conferences around the world. He's also passionate about open source and loves teaching at Le Wagon.
A former senior international TV correspondent for Russian networks, Andrey fell in love with programming while working in France and decided to change his career entirely. After graduating from Le Wagon in Paris he found his calling in helping people from different walks of life to discover the beauty of code. Considers programming a form of creative writing.
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.
After receiving his Bachelor in Communication and Multimedia Design, Lars decided he wanted to add programming to his set of skills. He was a student in the first Amsterdam batch of Le Wagon. Lars can be described as a full-stack programmer, equally favouring back-end and front-end development. He also provides workshops and coaching in concept development. Currently he's active as a teacher & TA and as a founder of his company, Unless. Lars is determined to change the world, one cool idea at a time.
