La Capsule is a full-time, 10-week web and mobile development bootcamp in Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Nice (France), Monaco and Brussels (Belgium).
During the course, students will learn the common core of web development and master basic foundations. Students... Read More will also learn advanced concepts for back end and front end programming. The course also includes a 2-week final project with help from teachers and mentors. After the conclusion of the course, there is a 4-week mentor program where bootcamp graduates can utilize career prep and job search help.
La Capsule has been a real challenge for me, as junior developper at the beginning, senior network and security architect, this bootcamp is well sized to any people who begins, or should confirm their bases and upscale their level. I recommend obviously... Read More this bootcamp !
I was a student of La Capsule in Bordeaux. The positives: 1. Obtaining an RNCP title equivalent to bac+3 in only 2 months. 2. The technologies taught are relevant. 3. The project-based learning format allows for rapid progress. 4. A qualified teacher... Read More who listens to you and who can potentially help you find a job. Negative points: 1. The format is not for everyone, it is very fast-paced, which could discourage/stress/frustrate many. 2. The cost of the training (excluding financing, but it is still competitive with the prices of other trainings) 3. It is a fullstack training, but still more focused on the front end (not really a negative point but rather a clarification) Conclusion: In short, this is a very good training and surely the best option in Bordeaux for people looking to get a first certification in the dev world quickly, while acquiring solid skills. Be careful, it is only a first step in the dev world and even if you learn a lot, on other subjects your knowledge will remain limited. You have to continue learning on your own and with the masterclasses offered by La Capsule at the end of the batch. You have to review the notions seen the same day at home in the evening, and I also advise you to understand the basics of algos and JS before starting. No, recruiters won't fight to employ you after a bootcamp, in my opinion, it's still very hard to get a permanent job or even to start a freelance career, and even hard to find an internship or a work-study program (potentially due to the current economic situation). In short, if you are lucid about what your post-batch situation will be, if you are not afraid of overworking yourself for two months and if you want to learn quickly, go for it!

"A great experience : high quality training course among amazing people"
When I learned about La Capsule training program, I didn’t know anything about coding but was curious to try! The first days were very overwhelming : learning new things every day, discovering the fundamentals, getting to know the other students : wow... Read More that’s a lot. The rhythm was intense but soon I got used to it and I loved getting up each morning to join my “buddies” (a new learning partner each day) and learn something new. The course and exercises are very well designed, we also had a few “hack” challenges that were perfect to test ourselves with everything we learned so far. The educational team was very qualified and patient with us! I’m very pleased I chose this training program; it was a great experience and I already advised people around me to do it. It’s truly a human adventure, I would do it all over again!
My experience at the capsule was perfect for me. I was able to increase my web development skills with an exercise and project based methodology. I have now found a job and I am most happy to have made this choice. If I had to do it again I would do it... Read More without hesitation. The main asset of this school is the languages learned: nextJS and nodeJS.
"This training was the best decision i have ever made!"
I have just finished my FullStack developer training from the capsule in Lyon in distance learning. I am happy with my training because it taught me to have a strong foundation in a short amount of time. It is true that it is an intense training and that... Read More is exactly what I was looking for, so it suited me well. I think that this format is not suitable for everyone, you have to be very motivated, hardworking, self-sufficient and have a strong mentality in order to not give up during the more difficult times. Otherwise, the subjects covered really allow you to have a strong foundation. I really liked how it was structured, with a lot of practice, quizzes, projects, algorithm exercises, etc. The fact of facing challenges allows you to learn faster. We are pushed to search for solutions ourselves and to work with others, which is similar to how it is done in a company, so it is good preparation. I would have liked the project manager part to be explored more. Being in distance learning in a hybrid format (part distance learning and part in-person) I found that the format was not adapted for distance learning in these circumstances. I had the feeling of being more isolated. We were not allowed to participate in the katas night which I really wanted to do and which we could have done in distance learning with screen sharing since that was our usual method of working between distance learners, we did not understand this decision. We did not have the buddy system which disappointed me a lot since that was a promise of the training. I did not understand the reason because in a company we are expected to work with people remotely so it would have been good preparation and it would have helped us integrate better with the rest of the group that was in person. Fortunately, we were a good group in distance learning and we organized ourselves to help each other and work together thanks to video and screen sharing. We also had a failure during the ice breaker and were not connected to the in-person group, so the bridges between in-person and distance learning were only really made during the demo day at the end of the training and I found it a shame, it would have only been positive for everyone to have a real mixed group. I had the feeling of missing out on some promises that were made to me before starting. However, there is now a 100% remote course so I imagine that the noted difficulties have been identified and that the necessary measures have been put in place. In these conditions, since there will apparently no longer be a hybrid format, I think that it will no longer be a problem and I can only tell you to go for it if you want to do this training! Honestly, I think it was the best decision I have ever made. However, do not expect everything to be handed to you on a silver platter, you will have to work hard! Nobody forces you to do this training, it is your own decision so you have to want it more than anything else. You will have to be self-sufficient because you will not have someone to hold your hand throughout the entire process. But it is worth it, it is an incredible experience that will change your life. Do not hesitate!
I was very satisfied with the web development training I followed at La Capsule. I chose to train there because I found that it was the bootcamp that offered the most adapted program to the market's needs and as soon as the admission process started,... Read More I was welcomed by the team, who seemed serious and reassuring. The training was very intensive but very rewarding, and I was pleasantly surprised at what I managed to learn in such a short time, even without any prior knowledge of code. I now have a good understanding of how a web application works and can be created, both from a front-end and back-end perspective. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to get into web development, it is both personally and professionally rewarding.
La Capsule is an intense and rewarding web development course that offers many professional opportunities. You must be curious and not hesitate to ask for help when you get stuck. With motivation and personal investment, you will manage to progress and... Read More evolve.

This course is suitable for beginners as well as for people with some experience. In summary, La Capsule is a good springboard to success in IT.
As a student of Batch 60 in Paris, I finished my web and mobile developer training at La Capsule at the end of December. My feedback is very good. The teaching team is benevolent and listens to the students. We never feel judged when we ask our questions.... Read More For people who are new to web development, the training is accessible as long as you have followed the instructions of La Capsule and have done the preparatory work beforehand. As for the program, it is very well done and adapts to novice profiles since it starts from the basics of programming to create an application from scratch! In conclusion, I recommend La Capsule and I have already recommended it to my relatives.
"Looking to be better at programming ? Go to La Capsule !"
I recently finished my bootcamp at La Capsule and I highly recommend it to people who want to improve their skills and learn about web development. It's an intensive and complete training, in which we approach all the notions we need to be autonomous... Read More on a project. To achieve this, La Capsule relies on a project-based pedagogy, which allows us to put our knowledge into practice through a lot of small and very interesting projects. The selected teacher is also very experienced and explains the concepts well. The Ariane learning platform is also very good and we are quickly autonomous on it. And in general, La Capsule team is very competent on all its subjects, which was really appreciable. I really enjoyed sharing all these moments, from the beginning to the end, from the application process to the end of my training. I would like to thank the whole team for their hard work! It is important to mention again that this is a bootcamp, so it is a very intensive course and you will get the most out of it by preparing yourself as much as possible before starting these 10 weeks. In conclusion, I chose to train at La Capsule because it was the bootcamp that was most recommended to me and I now recommend it to myself.
