Code the startup way.

Learn web-development

Learn all about Ruby, SQL, and the Rails application framework. Develop your front-end skills by using advanced CSS technics (flexbox, grid, animations, etc..) and go deeper into Javascript by learning jQuery and React.js, the library developed by Facebook. More details.

Become a Software engineer

Become more than a developer, a Software engineer. A person who has the big picture on technical issues, who knows what is a MVC, a DB scheme, an HTTP request, and who can learn a new programming language within a week.

Adopt a technical workflow

There's definitely a good way of building tech products and that's what we will teach you. Write your MVP's user stories, draw your database scheme, build a mockup with Sketch, collaborate using pull-requests and code-reviews on Github. That's how successful startups work.

Get the startup toolkit

Heroku, Stripe, Mandrill, Amazon S3, Algolia... We will teach you how to implement all these services to be more efficient at the launch of your new product. Save time, use the right tool for your specific need, that's our developer mindset.

Build your product

No one will teach you how to build web products as we do. Kudoz has just raised 1.2M, Impact is disrupting politics, MaShareEcole school, MedPics healthcare, Krawd marketing... and there are so many other projects in the starting blocks. Check it out for yourself.

Land a new job

Working as a junior developer for Stripe, Algolia, Molotov, Save, Compass, 55, Save, etc.. We will help you find your dream job, either as a junior dev, product manager or growth hacker. Discuss with any of our alumni to find out more!

What our students think of us

Challenging, intense, fun, Le Wagon took us from clueless to junior devs in just a few weeks!
It's a whistle stop tour into the world of full stack programming that if you snooze, you lose, there's no going backwards only forwards into the unknown to give birth to new amazing products with your teammates for life.
I feel Le Wagon, gave me the keys to a new world. From here, it's all up to me.
9 weeks of intense coding.Great curriculum, enthusiastic coaches. The MBA of code.
Intense experience full of love and tears. Will do it again.
Le Wagon is THE coding school you should do. period. It's worth the cost. Go and see by yourself.
I was exhausted at the end of the bootcamp with my body still now recovering, but I loved every minute of it.
It was one of the most exciting and challenging time of my life. I felt that I should have learnt all of that 15 years ago, but this power of internet did not exist by then. So Lewagon was the right thing to do in this very right time.
Neophyte in programming, I was amazed about how @lewagon could seed us the proper knowledge to start migration on our own projects. Respect!
I loved it, I was challenged, frustrated, euphoric and down on my rear end some days. I would recommend Le Wagon to anyone with aspirations to code. Just be prepared for an emotional journey.
Really a life changing and amazing experience. I didn't expect to love coding this much!
I couldn't imagine to be so grateful after this 9 weeks. We learned so much about web development and have such a great time
