Covid-19 caused sudden changes in all spheres of society, and it was no different for Le Wagon. We had to make a quick transition to a remote format. Even though this was an unfortunate situation, this format was also an opportunity for some students who live in cities where Le Wagon does not have a campus. Rubem Medina is one of these cases: he is a student of the current full-time program  in São Paulo even though he lives in Paraguay:

“It's been a year since I wanted to do Le Wagon, and I only didn't do it because it would be difficult to leave everything for 2 months (work and stuff), not to mention that the cost would be expensive for those who are not from São Paulo. In addition to the cost of the course, I would have to spend on accommodation, food, tickets, etc. So, this remote format is very comfortable for the student. It’s much easier for someone to decide to do it and put in the time.” 

Enrolling in a bootcamp remotely is also a great way to experience a way of working adopted by many technology companies today, as highlighted by our student Pedro Miranda, student of the part-time program in Rio:

“I saw this situation of taking part in the bootcamp remotely as an opportunity to adapt to what I believe (and what trends show) that jobs in the medium to long term will be: remote. In this sense, the bootcamp teaches me, in addition to programming, also to work remotely, presenting me with all the tools necessary for this transition. “

We also asked our students the main advantages and disadvantages of a remote bootcamp and how they organize themselves on a daily basis:
