Learn to Code in the Land of Abundance

Chengdu has one of the best performing regional economies in China, yet it maintains its rich cultural heritage and famous laid-back lifestyle. Throughout a decade of strong growth in the tech sector it has attracted companies such as IBM, Thoughtworks, Samsung, Tencent and over half of the Fortune 500 companies. Now, with generous government support for entrepreneurship, Chengdu is pushing to become China's next big innovation hub.
At Le Wagon Chengdu we bring technical skills to the next generation of creative entrepreneurs. Join our global community and become a part of the technology revolution!

The next bootcamp runs from October 16 to December 15, 2017


Now accepting applications!

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!
