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 60 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!

The most acclaimed Coding Bootcamp

Le Wagon is the #1 ranked coding bootcamp on Switchup Coursereport logo

Le Wagon has 1954 reviews with an average grade of 4.98/5 which makes it the most acclaimed coding bootcamp worldwide on Switchup according to student reviews! Whilst these reviews make us proud, above all they make us happy. Behind these reviews are hundreds of people around the world who have had a life-changing experience joining our program, that has opened new doors for them. We feel blessed and honoured to have enabled them - and to keep enabling our students - to become autonomous in coding, upskill or change their career, or launch their own startups.

Also, these 1954 reviews are extremely important for us to make sure we’re always meeting the same level of excellence. Having such positive and enthusiastic reviews about our bootcamps is the ultimate proof that we provide the best tech education for all our students, in the 43 cities we run our coding bootcamps in.

Any questions about our program in Montreal

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.

What type of visa do I need to attend Le Wagon in Canada?

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.

Do you have local scholarships or other financing options in Canada?

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.

You can also withdraw from your RESPs or RRSPs (for use in the LLP) to pay for your tuition. Here is more info for using your RESP and to participate in the LLP.

Further Readings: The reasons why to use RRSP to go back to school.

Do you offer career support in Canada?

We do support all our students 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 groups, enjoy our exclusive perks, land their first job as developers, product managers or in a data team, launch their startup or start their freelancing career.

We organize four career weeks a year for our alumni that include inspiring talks, networking with alumni and job fairs. See one of our career week' s video

However, we consider that the ability of each student 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.

What are the graduates from Montréal doing now?

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 want to know more about them, you could also check some of our inspiring alumni stories or read the outcomes of our coding bootcamp

As an International Student, can I find a job in Canada after the bootcamp?

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 :)

Is the tuition tax deductible in Canada?

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.

What payments methods are accepted in Canada?

For local or national students: e-transfer (Interac), bank transfer, or cheque. For international students: Transferwise is a good option or World Remit.
