I noticed that there was a very friendly atmosphere between the students, the staff and the teachers at Le Wagon Istanbul. I never felt alienated, so Le Wagon was a very positive experience for me and I am happy with how it met my expectations. I really miss coding at the Bootcamp from 9 am to 6pm. The thing I miss the most is the discipline we had, and the teachers were very helpful to sustain that discipline. The campus atmosphere was very nice, we used to gather every Friday to relax and have a small party with the teachers and the staff. How Le Wagon teaches you new things is very enjoyable, the lessons were intensive, and when I had a hard time understanding a problem or a task, no questions remained unanswered. Besides that, Le Wagon is a very responsible organization. For example, I live in Frankfurt and I wanted to join Le Wagon Germany’s “Career Week”. When I told the staff in Istanbul about this they arranged it very quickly. That’s just one example of how the people at Le Wagon take responsibility and love to help. Le Wagon’s Global alumni network is really useful too. I was looking at job offers on Linkedin, and I saw that some of the graduates were working for those companies. I have sent them connection request and we have started talking and through them I was able to get useful information, advice and further insights. Before joining Bootcamp, I tried learning software myself, but it didn't work the way I wanted it to. Thanks to Le Wagon, I learned how to code. I noticed that I could work more comfortably within a team. We were very busy during the “Projects Weeks”, when we built an awesome application from scratch. This was great fun! We learned how teamwork works! When you get a job, you will not take a solo role, you will be working with a team and Le Wagon’s buddy system has prepared us for a real work environment. I found that everything we learned in the curriculum is also necessary and relevant for our future jobs in tech. When I was looking at a job application, I realized that I had many of the skills required. That is why I found the curriculum useful. Also, during “Career Week” – when Le Wagon Istanbul prepared us for our future jobs - we had some very interesting speakers attend. It was very nice to learn about how job interviews are being done and to learn from other professional experiences.
