Our web development course in Montreal is an immersive experience that takes you from beginner to junior software developer in 9 weeks. At the end of the course, you will know how to build a robust and user-friendly app that answers your users' needs, and to follow the right workflow to collaborate with other developers, designers and product managers.
Our web development course in Montreal is designed to make you learn to code step by step, until you can build your own web applications from scratch.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
We help our students find a job by preparing them for technical interviews, organising job fairs, startup office hours and coaching sessions with tech recruiters and alumni. We have helped our 12,840+ graduates find their dream job!
After the bootcamp, all our alumni get access to Le Wagon’s one-week online extension training in React.js and Redux. A very useful course for our students who want to go deeper in front-end development or apply to front-end developer jobs.
Our alumni keep a lifelong access to our online platform with 300+ challenges, 100+ hours of video lessons to re-watch any time after the bootcamp, 100+ live-codes and tutorials on real-life developer examples and 900+ flashcards to rehearse core concepts.
Our 12,840+ alumni discuss every day on Le Wagon’s Slack channels after the course, getting help from our 900+ teachers, sharing tips, resources, code snippets, job offers and news from their products. An engaged and passionate tech community, all over the world.
Le Wagon uses a specific learning process that ensures we absorb and apply knowledge in an optimal way via their own platform, challenges and projects. And that’s not counting all the soft skills we acquire that are necessary for developers.
This bootcamp has the most structured and best-paced curriculum I have ever come across. We had the best learning environment one could ask for, and in the end, I walked away with so much more than just skills in web development.
Le Wagon’s teaching method is pioneering in the way that it provides the student not only with a general understanding of some languages but with a deep mastering of what is fundamental: the skeleton, the way everything is set-up.
From morning lectures to evening talks, every day is in Montreal action-packed.
Grab a coffee and start every morning with an engaging & interactive lecture, before putting what you’ve learnt into practice.
Pair up with your buddy for the day, and work on a series of programming challenges with the help of our teaching staff.
Learning to code can be very intense. If you want, you can make the most of the yoga classes we organize on certain days to relax and take a break.
Review the day’s challenges and get an overview of upcoming lessons during live code sessions.
Be inspired and get priceless advice from successful entrepreneurs invited for exclusive talks.
At the end of the bootcamp, you are welcome to join our Career Week. This week gives you the tools you need to take the next steps in your career, whether it is finding your first job in tech, building a freelance career, or launching a start-up.
Benefit from a combination of panel discussions, workshops, presentations, and assignments to help you find the right career path.
Prepare your personal profile, complete job applications, prepare for technical challenges, and make a game plan for after the bootcamp!
Hear from alumni about their post-Bootcamp journeys and what a typical day looks like in their new careers.
You can join any workshops or watch any tutorials that you are interested in. You create your own career week according to your interests and objectives
During our web development course in Montreal, you learn the essentials of programming while building your own web applications. As a result, you end up the course with a rich Github portfolio containing at least two fully-functional web applications - an Airbnb-like marketplace and your own final project.

Since day one, we’ve taken teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level.

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.
If you’ll be attending the 9-week full-time bootcamp, simply entering Canada as a visitor with a valid passport is usually enough. That said, some people may require a visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization. While we don’t formally assist students with acquiring visas, we’re happy to point you in the right direction. Here’s some useful information to help find the travel documents you need.
If you’re planning on attending the 24-week part-time program, make sure to check (and double check!) whether you’re authorized to stay in Canada for the program’s entirety.
Check our financing options to find out more about the current scholarships available.
We have a partnership with a financial institution (Caisse Desjardins des TI), that offers low-interest student loans and flexible payment options. This option is available for all students who are approved in the first steps of our selection process and are Canadian citizens or residents.

The cost of living might vary a lot according to your lifestyle. You can find here more information about the neighbourhood we are located at and also some links with apartments for rent - some of them are suggestions from our alumni.
Yes :-) We do support all our graduates in finding the right career path after the bootcamp, sharing them all the necessary resources to build the best LinkedIn profile, getting the best out of the alumni Slack channels, enjoy our exclusive perks, get prepared for technical interviews, land their first job as developers, product managers or in a data team, launch their startup or start their freelancing career.
We organize career weeks after each bootcamp that include inspiring talks, practical workshops, coaching session, and networking events with alumni. We also organize job fairs or networking events with recruiters every season (four times a year). See one of our career week' s video
However, we consider that the ability of each graduate to find a position after the bootcamp is highly based on the student's motivation and work. Guaranteeing 100% employment at the end of the bootcamp would be dishonest in that regard. When choosing a bootcamp, what you should focus on is the quality of the curriculum and teachers. You should ask yourself about the skills you will have at the end and the product you will be able to build. This is what will really make you hireable.
Keep in mind that Le Wagon has an excellent network within the tech industry and a very good reputation with recruiters. Our students massively benefit from this. Moreover, we now have thousands of alumni worldwide. This internal network is your first support when looking for a job: our alumni work for the best tech companies out there and can recommend you for a position, and they'll also be available to support you during the search - by answering technical or non-technical questions.
We have hundreds of alumni who graduated from one of our batches in Montréal, most of them living in the city. After Le Wagon, the majority found a new job (either as a product manager or developer). A part of them are working as freelancers now and around 10% of them are entrepreneurs. It’s a rich, diverse and vibrant community <3
If you already have a work permit and are authorized to work in Canada, it will make the job search process faster. If it is not the case yet, find more information about different types of work visas. You could also check eligibility to immigration programs, such as Express Entry or Quebec Immigration Programs.
But again, as we mentioned before, to attend the full-time bootcamp you only need to enter to Canada as a visitor :)
Your tuition is tax deductible. We'll issue a T2202A for you to claim your tuition for the program on your tax return. For student living in Québec, we will also issue a receipt for your tax filing at Revenu Québec.
