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 patterns (flexbox, CSS grid) and go deeper into Javascript and ES6, the latest version of Javascript. 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, MailChimp, Cloudinary, 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!

Teachers in Lisbon

Carlos Mendes

After a master and a PhD in computer engineering at Instituto Superior Técnico, Carlos founded Pricious, an ecommerce platform with discounts financed with advertisements. He has been programming in ruby on Rails for a long time now, and he loves to teach and communicate his passion for software development and for building creative digital solutions. He joined a Toastmaster club in 2014 to improve his communication skills and become a better public speaker and leader, which makes him an awesome teacher!

Lead Backend Teacher



Shannon Graybill

This cowgirl turned wannabe-European spent the first 5 years after university working and traveling through Asia and Africa before discovering her love of Southern Europe – Portugal in particular. Shannon’s professional focus was mainly marketing and business development, but entering Lisbon’s startup scene has changed her tune. She is now warming up her tech muscles while pursuing her own startup dreams and mobilizing Portugal's inspired-entrepreneurs to bootstrap and build “it” themselves.

Cyrille Labesse

When Cyrille realised it was time to drop out of his 5-year "engineering school" in Lyon, France, it was to join the startup scene and learn how to code properly by hands-on work. After France, he moved to Vancouver then later on to Berlin sharpening his back-end development skills. In 2015, he decided to devote his time to teaching and specifically to dev-bootcamps as they reflect exactly his idea of education for a fast-paced, high-tech and innovative world.

Lead Backend Teacher



Andre Costa

A true adventurer in life. Once an architecture student, André changed his course to follow 3D animation and Augmented Reality at a time no one was speaking of it. A self-taught programmer, he kept pushing his boundaries and went on to co-found BeyonIdeas and to serve in several projects as a Frontend developer. Nowadays he’s an ambitious entrepreneur who loves technology, travel, learning new things and giving back his knowledge. You can also find him at Advicefront.

Lead Front-End Teacher



Nicholas Major

In October 2015, Nick quit his job at a small start up and bought a one-way ticket to Thailand. Since then he has been traveling full time in places like Thailand, Vietnam, Portugal, and Germany. Nick is a self taught developer and has been programming professionally for 5+ years. He has worked in languages such as Ruby, Javascript, Python and even Perl. Nick started teaching at Le Wagon when he discovered it was the perfect blend of his love for coding and passion for communication.
