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.


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!

Any questions about our program in Rio de Janeiro

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 is a bootcamp?

A bootcamp is a type of immersive training designed to develop important skills in a variety of areas. You can read more about here.

Interested in learning amazing skills soooo fast?🚄

A bootcamp is for you! This teaching methodology grows more and more in the world and is the future of education!

What bootcamps does Le Wagon offer?

We currently have Web Development 👨‍💻 and Data Science 📊 bootcamps

Web Development is the area of creating websites

Data Science is linked to several areas of data analysis

Currently, like other technology careers, there is great demand from the current job market, thus making people who graduate in these areas get jobs relatively easier and earning well.💸

What are the bootcamp days and times?

There are 2 types of bootcamp: Full-time and Part-Time.

They work as follows:

Full-Time Bootcamp 👉 Lasts 9 weeks, Monday through Friday 9:00h to 7:00h

Part-Time Bootcamp 👉 Lasts 24 weeks, takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 19:00h to 22:00h and Saturdays from 10:00h to 17:00h

Is it remote or in person?

Although there are exclusively remote classes, we are working with the hybrid model, that is, you choose how you want to complete the bootcamp, our methodology is not affected by this, but if you have the option to choose between remote or face-to-face

Maaaas, we consider the face-to-face model ideal for the experience to be complete. You don't want to miss our happy hours🍺, right?

Do I need to have some knowledge to do the bootcamp?

For the Web Development bootcamp, you just need motivation and energy!

And for the Data Science bootcamp, you need to master basic math: functions, their derivatives, and systems of linear equations. Also, an intermediate level of English is required to understand the content 🤓

Do I need to be fluent in English?

In Rio de Janeiro, both courses (Full-Time and Part-Time) are taught in English, you don't need to be 100% fluent but you need to be able to understand written and spoken English well and you have to be able to communicate in English, as our platform and exercises are in English and you may have teammates who only speak English.

In São Paulo, classes are taught in Portuguese, although sufficient English is desirable to read the material.

What is the price of bootcamp?

The Web Development bootcamp costs R$19,500 and the Data Science bootcamp R$20,900. These values are for Brazilians only.

For foreigners, the Web Development bootcamp is worth 6,000 USD and the Data Science bootcamp is 6,500 USD

So that everyone can afford this investment in a new career, we have some financing, installment and discount options too!

What are the financing, installment and discount options?

We have the following payment methods and discounts:

Payment methods:

• From 1x to 3x without interest

• 12x (monthly interest of 1.89%)

• 18x (monthly interest of 1.99% ) • 24x (monthly interest of 2.19%)

Discounts (non-cumulative):

• 5% for cash payment

• 7% members (if you refer a friend to the bootcamp and both pass our selection process)

We also have the ISA modality, designed to serve low-income people who want to do the bootcamp.

If you have any questions, talk to our bootcamp manager, she will be happy to help you with that.

Do I need to have a notebook?

Yes, each student must have their own notebook with macOS, Linux or Windows operating system.

Should I buy a specific computer to take the course?

Should I buy a specific computer to take the course?

For the computer, we don't have minimum requirements, if it runs the most basic programs well, then it will probably hold up well to our development tools, you don't need to have a spaceship at home.

On the first day, we'll setup the machines to install everything you'll need during bootcamp, so don't worry!

⚠️ Tablets like Microsoft Surface or Apple iPad don't work, because they're not real computers. If you need help purchasing equipment, please contact our team.

How is the selection process?

The first step is to submit the application form, it takes a few minutes to complete.

After our contact by email, we will schedule a quick conversation via video call or even in person if you prefer. This conversation is to understand in detail your goals and motivations, shortly after the interview you will receive the answer informing you whether or not you are the newest student of Le Wagon!

How should I prepare for the interview?

After we approve your application, we will schedule a 30-minute interview to get to know you better.

The tip is: be yourself! Again, we will be looking at your motivation, but we will also be checking your team spirit. As you will often be working with other people during the course, this is a very important criterion for us. If you're highly motivated and love working with other people, you'll probably be able to move on to the next step.

How will my online application be evaluated?

In online applications, we're looking for just one thing: motivation. As our 9 week course is intense and challenging, we only want the most motivated people. Don't forget to explain why you want to join Le Wagon - the more details you give, the better your chances of being selected for the interview!

If the class is full, can I join the waiting list?

Le Wagon changes lives so it is very difficult for an already approved person to want to drop out, however we do have a waiting list when classes are full in case that happens.

To join this waitlist, you will need to go through the same application process.

When will the next classes be?

We usually open classes 4-5 months in advance. You will see the upcoming dates of classes in the city you are interested in on their page or through our social networks. We recommend that you register at least 1 month before the start of the class. There's a very important selection process for you to go through!

Who are the students joining Le Wagon Rio de Janeiro?

Our students come from all around the world! 🌍

We usually have about 20 students per batch, half brazilian, half international, coming from France, USA, Germany, UK, Canada, Spain, Poland, Sweden... Just last year, we had 20+ different nationalities in the bootcamp!

On average, they are between 20 to 35 years old - everybody is welcomed, as long as you're motivated and curious 💪

They want to change their careesr, launch startups, upskill at their current jobs... It's a very enriching experience and stimulating environment to study in ☺️

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

For our 9-week coding bootcamp, you can simply come as tourist. You will be allowed to stay up to 90 days in Brazil (3 months) so right enough to do the bootcamp (2 months) and still have time to travel around ✈️

However, depending on your country, you may require a visa to travel to Brazil. We're here to help you in this process and we're ready to provide any document to help you get it.

Make sure to check with your local Brazil consulate the document your might need.

For more questions & answers, you can visit our FAQ section! If you would like to discuss with Le Wagon team, don't hesitate to contact us.
