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!

Any questions about our program in São Paulo

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 courses do you offer? It's full-time only or there's a part-time format too?

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.

How much does the bootcamp cost? Which financing type and payments are accepted?

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)

Which languages do you teach? Is it web-focused only or there are mobile languages?

Our training is Full-Stack, which means you will end up mastering Front-End and Back-End development. On the Front-End, our stack consists of HTML, CSS and Javascript. On the Back-End, we have pure Ruby in the first weeks and introduce the Rails framework midway through the course. For database languages, we have SQL, through formats such as CSV, MySQL and PostgreSQL. In addition, our students end up having solid knowledge in Git and Github as well as deployment in Heroku. We don't teach mobile native languages, but we will teach you how to create responsive web applications that will fit perfectly on mobile phones. Plus, through PWA (Progressive Web App) technology, you can deliver a user experience that is remarkably similar to a native app.

Does Le Wagon offer career help? What is the job placement rate? There are partnership with companies?

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.

How does the selection process work? What are the phases?

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 (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 :)

What are the technical requirements for the course? I need to speak english? Should I buy a specific computer to take the course?

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!
