Our web development course is an immersive experience that takes you from beginner to junior software developer in 9 weeks. At the end of the course, you will know how to build a robust and user-friendly software that answers your users' needs, and to follow the right workflow to collaborate with other developers, designers and product managers.
Our web development course is designed to make you learn to code step by step, until you can build your own web applications from scratch.
Our Web Development Course is very intense. To save time and nail it from the beginning, our students must complete the PrepWork on our custom-built platform before starting the bootcamp. This work takes around 60 hours and gives our students a basic knowledge of:
Work with the right developer tools and workflow. Learn the basics of the command line, use a code text editor and install Ruby with a version management tool. Get familiar with most useful developer packages and learn how to version your code with git and push it on Github.
Write programs manipulating variables, loops, conditions and data structures (Array and Hash). Detect text patterns with Regular Expressions and start parsing data from structured files (CSV, JSON, XML, HTML) fetched using web-scraping or by building requests to JSON APIs.
Structure your software following Object-Oriented principles. Learn the Model-View-Controller pattern in-depth (most common application design pattern) by coding several MVC softwares from scratch. You will have to code everything on your own, even simulating your database storing data in CSV files.
Learn to design a relational database schema and to build structured queries to your database with SQL. Build simple CRUD queries (Create, Read, Update, Delete) or advanced JOIN queries. Learn to connect your database to your ruby software with an ORM (Object Relational Mapping) called Active Record.
Build your web pages following atomic design principles and code your own UI kit of web components & layouts by applying the latest CSS techniques. Build pages with an adaptive design thanks to media queries and learn to quickly prototype a web app with Bootstrap 4.0 and its responsive grid system.
Wrap it all together by coding your first Ruby on Rails applications. Deploy your applications in production & start coding “the Rails way”. Go deep into Rails discovering advanced concepts like nested resources, namespaces, or how to refactor an app with services or to build an API with Rails.
Code a clone of Airbnb from scratch in 5 days. You will work in teams to learn to collaborate on Github using pull requests and deploy your apps on Heroku, using the same workflow as successful startups. Implement advanced features (payment, image upload, search, geocoding, background jobs, etc…) and learn to cover your code with tests.
Projects Phase is the ultimate experience of the course: invent, pitch, design, code and deploy an original project in teams of 3 or 4 people during the two final weeks. You will have to go through all the process from the idea to the live app in production on a real domain name, ready to be tested on the market!

These 2 months were real fun, combining logic with creativity and I really found out what to do with my life: code. We had the chance to work as teams and develop really cool projects, which was really enriching.
Their slogan “learn to code change your life” says it all. Whether you’re going to be a coder, back to school or back to your old job, this experience was really life changing. Leaving Barcelona and Le Wagon was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
Teachers are awesome, course content is well thought out and presented well, and the support is exceptional. Each day you are challenged and building up to create your very own web application.
Le Wagon provided us with a very well planned and practical curriculum that effectively focuses on teaching the fundamentals and reinforces that students understand what’s happening, what they’re doing and why, at every step along the way.
My time during the bootcamp was fantastic. I’d say that my biggest take aways from the 9 weeks in Barcelona were that one can learn anything and solve anything if they know where to look and persevere while doing so.
Most coding bootcamps teach you how to code, Le Wagon teaches you how to use code to build products. They teach you to qualify, prototype, user-test, and develop your ideas. Le Wagon gives you the skills to be an entrepreneur as well as a programmer.
The experience at Le Wagon has been an amazing, exciting and very fast-paced journey. I've levelled up my knowledge of programming, going from basic knowledge of Ruby and Ruby on Rails to developing, deploying and launching my very first app.
From morning lectures to evening talks, every day is action-packed.
Grab a coffee and start every morning with an engaging & interactive lecture, before putting what you’ve learnt into practice.
Pair up with your buddy for the day, and work on a series of programming challenges with the help of our teaching staff.
Learning to code is very intense, so it’s important to take a break and relax during our yoga classes.
Review the day’s challenges and get an overview of upcoming lessons during live code sessions.
Be inspired and get priceless advice from successful entrepreneurs invited for exclusive talks.
During our web development course, you learn the essentials of programming while building your own web applications. As a result, you end up the course with a rich Github portfolio containing at least two fully-functional web applications - an Airbnb-like marketplace and your own final project.

Since day one, we’ve taken teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level. Experience as a developer alone doesn’t necessarily make one an effective teacher — that’s why we’re passionate about finding not only great engineers, but deeply committed, experienced teachers.

At first, it was hard for me to learn web development, but the teachers made sure I made progress and really helped me along the way. Looking back at the whole experience, Le Wagon is the best investment I've made in myself and my career.
The teachers and TAs were really supportive and made the learning process very enjoyable. I highly recommend Le Wagon, for the learning experience and the community that you become a part of. … and I have just landed my first developer job!
Le Wagon's method is perfectly implemented, but what makes the difference are the people working there. They just keep motivating us, treating us with a lot of attention and patience. They made us feel good, happy, focused and part of the community.
I loved the program, methodology, teachers and the environment. But if I had to choose one, I think all the teachers did an outstanding job teaching the material in such a short amount of time.
All teachers and people from Le Wagon; they were not just teachers but also great human beings. They taught me how to code and how to love it, they transmitted their passion and their will to keep going and to learn something new everyday.
As far as the technical expertise of the instructors, they really seemed to know above and beyond the stuff they were teaching us, and had an immediate answer for almost every question that was thrown at them.
The staff are incredible people and teachers, they know very well what they’re doing. The program is incredibly well structured and the resources are top quality. I can only say amazing things about this place, if I could I'd do it all over again.

Le Wagon changed my life completely, it was more important than just only coding. This bootcamp taught me how I can manage my life in the way I really want it. Now I have a more independent mindset and I can manage my life myself!
If you are looking for a meaningful, high quality place to develop your technical and personal skills and change your attitude forever, then Le Wagon Barcelona is the place for you!
The people I met there and the skills I learned completely exceeded my expectations. The absolute highlight were the three last weeks in which we built two MVPs. This was an absolutely amazing experience and I would recommend it to anybody in doubt.
I’d like to genuinely & uncharacteristically assert that my time at Le Wagon Barcelona was one of the most positive, self-actualizing, & unforgettable experiences of my life.
This camp far exceeded my expectations and at the time of writing this just a few days after finishing in Barcelona I already have two job offers in Denmark and Germany. I'm definitely going all in on this exciting field!
The bootcamp was amazing, including patient and caring teachers, awesome facilities for all the students and yoga each week as promised. It’s still hard to believe I can now code. I feel like a magician. Almost anything I want to create, I can.
Le Wagon changed my life and made me a better thinker, a better engineer and a better person. I can’t believe that in just 9 weeks I have built a fully functional app that is now available to all!
A few days after the bootcamp started it was clear I’d made one of the best decisions of my life. I’ve learned a lot, met many inspiring people and am a better person today. If there's one life lesson I really believe in: it’s never too late to try!
You get to meet people from all over the world and learn how other cultures address same pains - in my case, +15 different countries! You surround yourself during 9 weeks with positive people while also entering Le Wagon's amazing coder community.
It wasn’t until I decided to join Le Wagon that I felt a huge progress in my carefully planned path. Even though it was only 9 weeks, I have never felt such great power like I do now thanks to Le Wagon. I feel like there is no limit to what I can do.
