It was 2005 when Gus left a stable job as a Product Manager in São Paulo to follow his dreams in beautiful Barcelona. After obtaining a Master in Digital Arts, he worked as a freelance web-designer until he decided to pick up his career in product management working for online companies. In 2015 he quit his job as a VP Product and took out time to travel and improve his coding skills. Along his sabbatical journey the red van crossed his path. He didn't think twice, jumped behind the wheel and drove Le Wagon to Barcelona.
Coding since the age of 16, Rubèn has experienced different faces of the IT world. Starting from the basics, he grew as a junior developer to become a team leader, taking responsibility for several projects at different startups in Barcelona. He also holds a degree in Psychology (interesting, isn't it? :), and after spending part of his time recruiting the best tech profiles in the Spanish market, he decided to jump into "Le Wagon" to start a new challenge and share his knowledge with amazing people!
Always looking for patterns around him to gain holistic understanding. Currently a sociologist, meditator, yogi and programmer. At the age of seventeen he spent a month teaching english in Kenya, which inspired him to travel and sparked an interest in positive change on an international level. Subsequently he went on to study sociology with an interest in international development projects. His passion project, creating a kickstarter for development projects brought him to his calling: using technology for positive change. Now teaching at Le Wagon, educating himself about blockchain technology and working as a freelance developer while travelling the world.
After receiving his Bachelors in Communication and Multimedia Design, Lars decided he wanted to add programming to his set of skills. He was a student in the first Amsterdam batch of Le Wagon. Lars can be described as a full-stack programmer, equally favouring back-end and front-end development. He also provides workshops and coaching in concept development. Currently he's active as a teacher & TA and as a founder of his company, Unless. Lars is determined to change the world, one cool idea at a time.
Jad is a fullstack teacher and an active conference speaker.
He's on a mission to inspire developers around the world by coaching at Le Wagon coding bootcamp in Europe and regularly speaking at international conferences.
Lately, Jad's focus lies on spreading knowledge about Progressive Web Apps and mentoring developers through online courses, blog articles and workshops for startups & enterprises.
Jean-Baptiste (please call him JB !) has been programming since he wanted to make his Amstrad CPC128 talk. After studying computer engineering at La Sorbonne in Paris he cofounded Studio Melipone in 2007, a development studio specialized in Ruby and Rails. Since then, he has kept working for startups on projects of all kinds and sizes. When he's not in his cave hacking something (or playing video games) he can generally be found in the mountains hiking or paragliding.
