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!

André 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.

Filipe Paiva

Filipe goes through great lengths not to be bored, coding and launching new projects are where his heart lies! Filipe studied International Business and Strategy in England, and taught English in Brazil. After working to setup the information system for his family run business, he decided it was time to dive deep into code. Now he one of the lead teachers at Le Wagon and is provides tech support for clients.



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.



João Viana

João has been in love with web development since high school, he has background in Computer Science and Electrical engineering and soon realised that the web was his passion. Former bartender in Lisbon’s busy nightlife, student from Batch #28, teacher assistant in Le Wagon and now devoted to teach code from 0 to hero, hoping to inspire people to be creative and independent in this fast paced, high tech world.

Ricardo Otero

Experienced web developer with Ruby background, proud co-founder of HOKO

Rui Freitas

After a brief affair with Computer Engineering when he was 18, Rui rediscovered his passion for software with Le Wagon. In between, Rui has lived in Asia, founded two small translation companies, walked the Great Wall of China, swam with sharks in the Maldives, crossed Asia into Europe on the Trans-Siberian train and ventured into the Colombian tropical forests to find the Lost City. A former Le Wagon Lisbon alumni, Rui loves to teach and to see software products come to life. Ruby is his favourite language, but he’s also been experimenting with JavaScript frameworks (React.js, Vue.js and Node.js).
