What our students think of us
After working for 10 years as a Knowledge and Information Manager, Anne went back to university to follow a degree in ICT. End of 2014, she launched (and since then, drives) Le Wagon Brussels. End of 2015, she started (and since then leads) Le Wagon Amsterdam. An ambassador of Rails Girls and a co-founder of the Techies Lab, she loves helping others to overcome the sometimes frustrating learning process and seeing the bright light in their eyes when the magic of coding gets unveiled!
Simon quit his job as an IT Analyst after having read The Pickaxe book and took his first try at Rails by coding his own blog. To his surprise this was enough to find a job as a Ruby Programmer and he hasn't looked back ever since. Currently the CTO of the crowdfunding platform MyMicroInvest, he is still freelancing as he feels it's the best way to keep growing professionally as a developer.
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.
Nicole has been designing websites and apps for over 5 years. She has a passion for creating beautiful design solutions for the digital world with experience in front-end development. She is currently a freelancer working with startups and big clients around the world. Besides that, she loves sharing her knowledge and passion about web design by writing articles on her site and coaching Le Wagon students on the topic!
After some years spent teaching future programmers, Martin worked as a Software Engineer, Team Leader and Agile Coach. He then co-founded PullReview, a toolchain which helps Ruby developers to improve their coding practices. Since October 2016 he's the CTO of Bluesquare. He has been a frequent speaker at the Brussels chapter of Rails Girls and at Paris.rb meetup.
Four hours after graduating from university, Thomas's new marketing startup already had its first client. After realising the question he was hearing most often was 'Can you build me a website?', he threw himself into software development. Since then he has led projects at startups on the canals of Amsterdam, freelanced from AirBnBs around the world, before joining Le Wagon Benelux to coach our students! His last baby: Trinity Tech, a digital product development company.
Before landing at Le Wagon, Margo worked for three years as a litigation lawyer in Montreal. She discovered the joys of programmation at Le Wagon Brussels which she completed in 2015. Nowadays, when she is not teaching at le Wagon, Margo can be found creating and running STEM workshops for kids and teens at Techies Lab which she co-founded with Anne Collet. Despite her newfound love for all things digital, she still carries around a paper agenda.
