Our web development course 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 software that answers your users' needs, and to follow the right workflow to collaborate with other developers, designers and product managers.
Our web development course 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 60 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!

Since day one, we’ve taken teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level. Experience as a developer alone doesn’t necessarily make one an effective teacher — that’s why we’re passionate about finding not only great engineers, but deeply committed, experienced teachers.

We have a single product, the full-stack web development bootcamp and you can attend it Full-Time and Part-Time: Full-Time Bootcamp: 9 weeks long, Monday to Friday from 9 am to 7 pm. Part-Time Bootcamp: 22 weeks long, on Tuesdays & Thursdays from 7 pm to 10 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm.
The bootcamp costs R$ 17,500 for both Full-Time and Part-Time. We have the following payment methods and discounts:
Payment methods: • From 1x to 5x without interest • 12x (1.89% monthly interest) • 18x (1.99% monthly interest) • 24x (2.19% monthly interest)
Discounts (not cumulative): • 5% for payment at once • 10% for Early Bird (with approval up to 2 months before bootcamp starts) • 10% Women in Tech • 15% Co-founders (if you refer a friend to bootcamp and both are approved)
We have many partnerships with companies that already know Le Wagon's reputation as the biggest and best programming bootcamp in the world. They come every batch to meet our students (some of them are hired before the end of bootcamp!). In addition, many alumni start their own business and look for other alumni to work with them; as well, there are other alumni who are working in companies with open spots and they bring these opportunities for our students. Le Wagon's alumni and teacher network, with over 6,000 members worldwide, greatly facilitates job-seeking and networking for jobseekers. This also makes it much easier for those interested in living and working abroad, as the program is exactly the same worldwide.
Our selection process doesn't evaluate technical skills, so you ** don't have to have exact background ** or know how to program with us (we've had students oceanographers, philosophers, photographers, filmmakers, sociologists, physiotherapists, tattoo artists , etc!). However, we will evaluate your posture and profile, as well as your commitment to the program, as it is thought collectively and its absence or lack of engagement would affect the group as a whole. Given this, it has the following phases: - Interview (online or in person) for profile analysis and expectations; - Conducting a 10 hour online Ruby course; - Payment data and contract signature; - Preparation of a preparatory work to be completed by the start of bootcamp, lasting approximately 40 hours.
If you wish, you can sign up at https://bit.ly/applyLWSP (no obligation) and as soon as you sign up you will receive a link to schedule a conversation with us so we can understand your timing and your needs and align your expectations as well as clear your doubts :)
Although both Full-Time and Part-Time courses are taught in Portuguese, for the Full-Time course, you need to be able to understand ** written English, as our platform and exercises are in English. For the part-time course, the level of requirement is higher (you must understand ** spoken English ** as well), as classes are taken online and in English. For the computer, we have no minimum requirements. On the first day, we will do a ** setup ** on the machines to install all the tools you will need during bootcamp, so rest assured!
