"Best way to learn new skill"

When I started my Android nanodegree I was absolutely beginner with Android and Java. After half a year I was able to make some app and maintain exiting apps in my company. The course is easy to follow and you always can have help from your mentor. I... Read More

"Best experience ever !!"

I decided to complete the Le Wagon bootcamp fullstack program in order to learn the Tech skills to have more control over my own start-up. I realize now that Le Wagon taught me more than code: I have developed an empowering new mindset and logic. Besides... Read More

"React and Redux. One week. Three words: Am - a - zing!!!"

The course is very well structured and taught. It has a good balance between theory and coding.
The instructors are ready to help all the time if you get a problem and they encourage pairing with other students.
I loved the advanced JavaScript concepts... Read More

"An awful experience, I would strongly warn others against this organisation."

After zero communication from you over a month and a half I am now giving up on this placement - if it ever existed. You've wasted a lot of my time in writing repeated communications, and the time of my colleagues who worked on our end on preparing for... Read More

You are supposed to be helping small organisations like mine connect with a placement, but instead you have failed to communicate with me after numerous wasted phone calls, Tweets and emails, and you have signally failed to deliver anything at all over two months. Bizarrely nobody even picks up the phone when I ring your office, as I have now done 6 times. That doesn't help tiny organisations, it wastes their resources and hinders them. It is absolutely fine to tell organisations that the placement has fallen through - it is not fine to stop communicating altogether and waste their time.

Please look into why this failure has come about and consider what impacts you are having on micro organisations like mine when you can't get your own systems and processes into a professional state.

"Life Changing... Literally!"

I had always been interested in becoming a programmer, but it seemed like an impenetrable industry with a steep learning curve and conflicting advice on the best way to get into it. Like many people trying to teach themselves to code, I spent countless... Read More

The other problem was not knowing how to code within a team. What’s the general etiquette? What tools are used? How are projects divided up amongst team members? It was the day-to-day of working in the industry that online courses were not giving me. Add to that the fact that I was stuck in a job that left me feeling exhausted and stressed that I simply did not have the energy to continue my learning at a sustained rate.

I decided to take the plunge, quit my job, and enrol at Le Wagon (batch #190). I can honestly say, it’s been one of the best decisions of my entire life.

Within the first week, I had already surpassed what had taken me 3 years of self-study to achieve. I am going to be completely frank, this course is intense! I strongly advise anyone taking this course to make sure that they have no other commitments whilst it’s running. This will be the hardest you will have worked for a long time.

I was taken aback by how slick the entire setup was. Their teaching platform (called Kitt) is hands down one of the most well designed and impressive sites I have ever seen. You have access to all of the lectures in case you miss a day (although definitely try not to miss any days if possible!), and this access extends to after you complete the batch (more on this later).

The teachers are all extremely knowledgable and very patient, especially with some of the harder concepts. The teaching assistants also were a great help, with a lot of them being recent Le Wagon graduates.

But the most important question is what is life after the batch like? Will you actually get a job in development. Well, almost all of the fellow students I speak to have already got jobs or have been offered jobs. I myself was offered a teaching assistant role at Le Wagon itself. This has been great as it’s eased the pressure a bit whilst searching for a job. As I write this now, I am scheduled to have an interview later this afternoon, so it’s definitely improved my job prospects.

The best thing post-course is the support you get afterwards. You still get access to all the learning material (you could do the entire course again in video form if you like). But you also get access to a massive Slack community for alumni. This was one of the missing pieces for me, I now have that group of peers that I can call upon that I didn’t have before.

Whether or not Le Wagon is right for you depends on your circumstances. The amount of effort you put into it is what determines what you get out of it. I can only speak for my own personal experience, but what I was looking for was a clean break away from my old job and to dive straight into a new career. Whilst I am still job hunting at the moment, I can safely say that I will not be going back to my old career!

"Best Bootcamp- cant go wrong!"

I never knew what I wanted to do when I was going through school. I only did A-levels so I could buy myself a couple more years. After that I went from job to job and travelled a bit inbetween, but I was still looking for something to make a career from.... Read More

Le Wagon is intense, which is made very clear to you beforehand, however it’s worth it. The course is 9 weeks and project focused, with the last 3 weeks creating an airbnb clone and a project of your choice, where you use all the skills you’ve learned within the first 6 weeks.
Day to day, the setup of the course is awesome, with a lecture first thing, then coding challenges going over the lecture topic, and then live code in the afternoon.
All the staff at Le Wagon are always super helpful and on hand as they’ve been in our shoes before, which is reassuring when you’re having trouble understanding something.

I would definitely recommend Le Wagon to anyone who is interested in coding. Best decision I made. Le Wagon London is where it’s at.
