In how many Coding Courses are students really able to build a web app from scratch by the end of the course? And isn't it curious that this is achieved in the program that is also the shortest among all Bootcamps?
Our core lies in the quality of education and delivering the content effectively. We are a growth-minded business, continuously working on improving every aspect of the learning experience for our students.
In the last 2 weeks of the program, students build products in teams of 3-4 people. At the end of their product sprint, they pitch in front of an audience- which means students have to know how to code a fully functional application and deploy it to demo it live.
Said another way, we are truly accountable and, therefore, put in an immense effort into making sure that our students have acquired a satisfactory coding level for them to be able to build these web applications by themselves in only 9 weeks.
It's likely the foundation that lies in Le Wagon being awarded the position as the best Coding Bootcamp for 4 years in a row.
And it reflects in how we deliver our product from the effective program structure, the quality of teaching, the learning interface, our content, our playfulness, and our community.
There is a misconception that the course is too short. 9 weeks is the time it takes us to train you to become a Junior Dev.
We also emphasize heavily on replicating an experience that is close to best practices applied among the top tech companies. One of these practices is pair-programming and collaboration.
Pair-programming is such an approach to effective problem-solving, learning, and writing better code. There are reasons why companies such as (REA, Thoughtworks, HelloFresh) insist on this practice.
And in terms of group collaboration, we work for 3 weeks straight, in groups of 3-4 people, to build web applications that you are proud of while training you to become the Developer version 3.0 that is demanded in 2019. This means:
Someone that can handle a little bit of chaos by knowing how to problem-solve, that know how to collaborate, that knows how to design a mockup, to run tests, that understands the power of effectively manage a team and a product, and of course, someone with strong coding skill.
