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.

ES6

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!

How to access Le Wagon Nice and where it is located?

All the information on the Wagon Nice premises, as well as the accessibility conditions, in particular for people with disabilities, are available on this page.

You can also contact us to find out about our reception conditions by sending an email to nice@lewagon.org.

Do the students all have the same profile?

Our students all have very different profiles. They are between 18 and 60 years old and all share the same curiosity and the same enthusiasm for the code. They come from very varied sectors: students, graduates of engineering or business schools, lawyers, journalists, architects, designers, musicians, nurses, bakers, masons… Spending 9 weeks at Le Wagon is not only an incredible experience. an educational experience is also a way of joining a great and inspiring community of which you will be a part for life!

And after Le Wagon ?

At the end of the training, you have all the skills to get started as a Web Developer, Product Manager, UX / UI Designer as an employee or as a Freelance. However, if you want to continue to improve your skills, the skills acquired at Wagon Nice allow you to obtain longer-term training with our partners. You will have the opportunity to discuss it with our educational advisor during the training.

As a person with a disability, can I follow your training?

It is possible for people with disabilities to follow our training courses. However, to check that they are appropriate for your situation, you should contact us directly for a first remote or face-to-face interview. The e-mail of the disability advisor is caroline.bayle@lewagon.org.

Why Ruby ?

Technology is a bit like fashion. Some people will say "this is not trendy anymore" or "this is the future". And we at Le Wagon prefer not to follow the hype and base our program on a more long-lasting foundation. 

When we learn to drive we learn to drive any car, right? Yes, we'll have to adapt to manual / automatic shift, a more powerful engine or a different break feel. It's the same with programming. 

One should not attend a bootcamp to learn a language. But to be able to deeply think as a software engineer. In other words, someone who is capable of breaking down problems into software components and build solutions from the ground up. Coding is here to build stuff and a bootcamp should equip you to be an autonomous creator.

So, we decided to teach the back-end programming with Ruby because of these three reasons:  1 - It's the first language who puts the developer at the center of the creation process. Most languages were created with the machine in mind (robustness, stability, performance...). The consequence is that computer languages can be unintuitive and complex to learn. Ruby was created by a Japanese guy (Yukihiro Matsumoto) who thought that a language should make developers happy. It's concise, elegant and reads like English. So students can focus on the developing their logical thinking, rather than memorizing the syntax. 

2 - There are several back-end languages. Ruby is object oriented programming just like PHP, Python, Java, C++. It means that the building blocks of programming are transversal to all of them (variables, functions, strings, arrays, hashes.) Once you learn object oriented programming, you'll be ready to acquire new skills in other back-end languages. You'll just need some time and discipline. Most of Le Wagon graduates who are now working as professional developers are coding in several different languages, frameworks and stacks.   3 - Paired with Rails (an open source framework created by a startup founder and author of the book "Rework" David Heinemeier Hansson), it brings an extremely efficient way of building web apps. Ruby on Rails has an amazing community of developers and was used to build companies like Airbnb, Twitter, Soundcloud, Kickstarter and Shopify. Remember: the bootcamp unfolds over 9 weeks only. Days are fully packed and it's really fast paced. It should be taken as a launchpad for a new life as a creator, rather than an end in itself. After these two months, there will be a never ending world of languages, frameworks, technologies to explore. If you learn how to learn, you'll be able to fly with your own wings.

In which language are the courses taught?

In Nice, lessons are taught in French. However, the video tutorials, exercises and languages ​​are in English. It is therefore necessary to have a good level of English to apply and to be able to be comfortable throughout the training.

What is the main difference between Le Wagon and other web development training?

Our main mission is to give you all the skills you might need in order to launch your web application. Whether you want to join a team of developers or launch your startup, the idea is above all to give you the right tools in order to be autonomous as quickly as possible. This is why we made the choice to teach Ruby and its Ruby on Rails framework. Both are based on a syntax that is easy to understand and adopt, giving you the opportunity to design and deploy your product in no time.

I don't have an idea for a project, is this a problem?

If you don't have a specific project idea, don't worry! Students carrying a project are invited to pitch it during training and students who do not have one join them to work on it. On the other hand, you should not apply if your only goal is to launch your project in 2 weeks. The real goal of the Project Weeks is to learn how to work in a team and improve their skills in Rails while you are building your product. Either way, the good news is that you will be able to code any idea independently at the end of the training!

What will I be able to build at the end of the 9 weeks?

At the end of the 9 weeks, you will have acquired a Ruby on Rails junior developer level. This means that you will be able to quickly prototype your ideas by independently creating a rich and complete web application. For example, you will know how to allow your users to register on your site (Sign up / Sign up with Facebook / Twitter), add an administration back-office, accept payment by card, send emails automatically, etc. You will know how to get into production quickly and you will have learned the best development practices used by the best startups today. You will then have the choice: to continue your entrepreneurial project, or to apply as a junior developer or product manager in a web startup!

Is there any preparatory work before the start of the training?

The only technical prerequisite to join the Wagon formation is to complete the Ruby track on CodeCademy. It usually takes between 9 and 15 hours. Once you have been selected, to help you get started with the code and make sure everyone is on the same level, we invite you to complete our Prepwork, available on our educational platform, before starting the training.

How will my application be evaluated?

We look for one thing above all in applications: motivation. Our 9 week training is intense and demanding and requires a lot. Make sure you explain why you want to join Le Wagon in your application. The more details you give us, the better your chances of being selected for an interview!

Do I need to prepare myself for the interview?

Once your application has been selected, we will schedule a 30-minute interview to get to know you. Come as you Are ! Once again, we will focus on your motivation, but also your team spirit. Since you will often be working with other people during the training, this criterion is very important to us!

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

At Le Wagon, around 80% of students have no technical skills when they enter the training, yet more than 99% of our students follow the training to the end. Since 2014, we have trained more than 10,000 people in web development. The ability of our students to succeed in the training or find a job depends above all on their motivation and their investment throughout the program. The main reason for dropping out for the remaining 1% is a change in professional project during training.

There is no typical profile to make the Wagon. Our students are young graduates, marketing and sales professionals, engineers, lawyers, journalists, architects, musicians ... Our students are between 18 and 60 years old and share the same curiosity and enthusiasm for code.

Est-ce que la formation est certifiante ?

Notre formation Développement Web délivre une Certification Professionnelle de niveau 6 (équivalent Bac+3/4) "Concepteur/Développeur d'application web" inscrite au RNCP. 3 blocs sont évalués : Définir et concevoir une application web / Développer l’application web / Déployer et optimiser les services de l’application web.

À ce jour, les blocs de compétences étant connectés entre eux, seule une validation de l'ensemble des blocs est possible.

How to apply for the training?

To apply for the training, you simply need to complete and submit the application form - it will take you a few minutes. We will then schedule an interview (remote or face-to-face one) to understand your objectives in more detail.

You will then have to complete a technical test to test your motivation!
