Get ready for the bootcamp

Our Web Development Course is very intense. To save time and nail it from the beginning, our students must complete the PrepWork on our custom-built platform before starting the bootcamp. This work takes around 40 hours and gives our students a basic knowledge of:

  • Web 101, how the web works
  • Terminal basic commands
  • Git basic commands
  • HTML / CSS foundations
  • JavaScript foundations
  • Tech workflows and tools in a startup

Developer tools & workflow

Work with the right developer tools and workflow. Learn the basics of the command line, use a code text editor and install Ruby with a version management tool. Get familiar with most useful developer packages and learn how to version your code with git and push it on Github.

Programming Basics in Ruby

Write programs manipulating variables, loops, conditions and data structures (Array and Hash). Detect text patterns with Regular Expressions and start parsing data from structured files (CSV, JSON, XML, HTML) fetched using web-scraping or by building requests to JSON APIs.

Software Architecture

Structure your software following Object-Oriented principles. Learn the Model-View-Controller pattern in-depth (most common application design pattern) by coding several MVC softwares from scratch. You will have to code everything on your own, even simulating your database storing data in CSV files.

Relational Database, SQL & ORM

Learn to design a relational database schema and to build structured queries to your database with SQL. Build simple CRUD queries (Create, Read, Update, Delete) or advanced JOIN queries. Learn to connect your database to your ruby software with an ORM (Object Relational Mapping) called Active Record.

Frontend Development

Build your web pages following atomic design principles and code your own UI kit of web components & layouts by applying the latest CSS techniques. Build pages with an adaptive design thanks to media queries and learn to quickly prototype a web app with Bootstrap 4.0 and its responsive grid system.


Learn ES6, your second programming language after ruby, to add dynamic behaviors to your website or update pages without reloading thanks to AJAX. Understand JavaScript fundamental concepts and learn to use all the necessary JS web tools like Babel, Webpack or yarn.

Ruby on Rails

Wrap it all together by coding your first Ruby on Rails applications. Deploy your applications in production & start coding “the Rails way”. Go deep into Rails discovering advanced concepts like nested resources, namespaces, or how to refactor an app with services or to build an API with Rails.

Cloning Airbnb in teams

Code a clone of Airbnb from scratch in 5 days. You will work in teams to learn to collaborate on Github using pull requests and deploy your apps on Heroku, using the same workflow as successful startups. Implement advanced features (payment, image upload, search, geocoding, background jobs, etc…) and learn to cover your code with tests.

Turn an idea into a product in 2 weeks

Projects Phase is the ultimate experience of the course: invent, pitch, design, code and deploy an original project in teams of 3 or 4 people during the two final weeks. You will have to go through all the process from the idea to the live app in production on a real domain name, ready to be tested on the market!

  • Define the Product's target users and unique value proposition
  • Build an interactive prototype with Figma to validate the UX
  • Split the work in your teams by defining and assigning user stories
  • Code the web application from scratch: from the back-end to the user interface
  • Deploy your app on a production environment
  • Pitch your product during the Demo Day!

Transition Pro (formerly Fongecif) offers 2 support systems for vocational training.

1-The PTP (professional transition project) : This device allows you to take time off from your workstation to follow a training course in order to acquire new skills, with the aim of changing professions or trades. To define whether it is indeed a change of trade or profession, Transitions Pro relies on an objective tool: the ROME code (Répertoire Opérationnel des Métiers et des Emplois). Based on the elements transmitted, Transitions Pro will compare your current trade and the targeted trade as indicated in the description of your professional project. The professional transition project is intended for employees in the private sector on permanent or fixed-term contracts, temporary and intermittent workers, under certain conditions. The Professional Transition Project funding application file is entirely dematerialized. You can access it from your personal space - Section "PTP Device".

2-The resigning device (dispositif démissionnaire) : It offers you the possibility to resign in order to implement your professional project and receive unemployment benefit. The professional project can be a creation or takeover of a company, or a training course. This device is accessible to employees on permanent contracts in the private sector who can prove a professional activity of 5 years during the last 60 months, at the date of their resignation. Your first step is to make an appointment with a career development consultant (CEP) (contact details download below). This step is mandatory and must be done before resigning.

CSP (Contract of professional security)

The CSP (Contract of professional security) can allow you to obtain a total funding of training. This financing facility is intended for employees of companies subject to an economic lay-off.

Any questions about our program in Lyon

If you got here, it means that you have questions about Le Wagon: how to apply, who can join, what you’ll learn… Good! We have the answers.

Are the alumni satisfied with Le Wagon's training?

We evaluate the satisfaction of our alumni with the calculation of the Net Promoter Score (also called NPS). To do this, we ask this question at the end of the course: "How likely are you to recommend Le Wagon to a friend, colleague or relative?" The possible answers are scores ranging from 0 (not at all likely) to 10 (very likely). The score given by the alumni determines the category in which they will be placed. There are 3 categories: Promoters: for alumni who give a score of 9 to 10 - Passives: for those giving a score of 7 to 8 - Detractors: for those giving a score of 0 to 6. The formula for calculating the Net Promoter Score is as follows: (Number of promoters - Number of detractors) / (Number of respondents) x 100

At Le Wagon Lyon, we have an average NPS of 87 in 2020 for our Web Development courses.

Is our formation delivering a certification?

Our Web Development course delivers a level 6 Professional Certification (equivalent to Bac+3/4) "Web Application Designer/Developer" registered with the RNCP

Here are the blocks of skills validated by this certification: - Block 1 : Define and design a web application project - Block 2 : Manage and develop a web application project - Block 3 : Deploy and analyse the use of a web application

Details of how to obtain certification are available here.

The average success rate for the certification over the past years is 80% (figure calculated over the years 2018 to 2020).

How to apply and what does the selection process consist of?

Here are the steps to apply at Le Wagon:

Go to Le Wagon Lyon program page , click on "Apply to Lyon" and choose your bootcamp rhythm in the drop-down menu: full-time or part-time.

Fill out the application form with your motivations and book a slot for an admission interview. This interview lasts half an hour and will allows us to evaluate your motivation, to know more about your professional project as well as your expectations regarding the bootcamp. To prepare for the interview, we strongly advise you to read our syllabus have a real look at the program and the languages ​​taught at Le Wagon.

You will also have a technical test to complete on CodeCademy to discover Ruby (which is the main language taught at Le Wagon): This is a ten hours exercice that you will have to complete within one week.

Those two tests will be used to estimate your motivation and then approve your application or not. It is only once you completed both the technical test and the interview that we will be able to give you an answer under 7 days.

If your application is approved, you will receive an online contract to sign. You will also have to pay a deposit in order to ensure your place in the next session (equivalent to 1/3 of the bootcamp fees).

In what language are the courses delivered?

In Lyon, courses are delivered in french. But video tutorials and coding exercices are in english. Thus our students need to have a good english level to be confortable throughout their learning experience.

I don't have any technical background, is it the right program for me ?

At Le Wagon, around 80% of the students are novice programmers. After having taught 6,000+ people how to code, we know that the ability of our students to succeed during and after the bootcamp is based above all on their motivation and work provided during the training.

There is no such thing as a typical profile among our students: recent graduates, professionals working in marketing, engineering, sales, lawyers, journalists, architects, musicians... Our alumni are between 18 and 55, and they all share the same curiosity and enthusiasm for coding.

Does Le Wagon deliver a certificate?

By attending Le Wagon bootcamp you can get certified as "Web Application Developer-Developer". This certification is registered in the National Professional Certification Office (RNCP) and is recognized by the state. Therefore this is a certification and not a diploma that you can take at the end of the training.

Does Le Wagon offers a visa or a student statut?

Joining Le Wagon doesn't make it possible to obtain a student status. Regarding tourist or business visa, you can directly contact your local city prefecture for more information and help.

Do you offer career support?

We recently conducted an alumni survey and created an infographic in order to answer to the most common questions among our students such as: - How long will I need to find a job? - What position can I hold after the bootcamp? - What type of contract? - For which salary? And many more...

We make every effort to best support our students in their job search at the end of the bootcamp. At the end of the 9-week full-time program, or 24-week part-time program, we organize offices hours: a dozen of workshops with Le Wagon's privileged partners - tech startups, product managers, investors - aiming to support students in their post-bootcamp projects. Among these partners we have many tech startups such as Tilkee, MealCanteen or PerAngusta

Le Wagon also gives you access to a broad and international community of +6,000 alumni. They often come back to Le Wagon to give tips and feedback to new students, and they will very often share job & co-founder opportunities.

On our side, we are very close to many tech companies and often do direct intro. We also have a Career Playbook, in which we explain how to continue to progress after the bootcamp, how to prepare yourself at technical tests, how to find a job of junior developer etc

The result? Our alumni looking for a job at the end of the program usually achieve their goals within less than 3 months. Obviously, we cannot promise anything: we consider that a candidate's ability to find a job is above all based on their involvement and motivation.

Why do you teach Ruby?

Ruby is an excellent language to start with. Its syntax is light which makes this language understandable and easy to learn for beginners. It also allows them to be autonomous in creating websites or applications to quickly test their ideas. On the other hand, the Ruby developers community is active, mature mature and stable. It is composed of senior developers keen to help juniors to develop their skills. Ruby is used by some of the best tech startups such as Airbnb or Github.
