What we're about

Le Wagon is a coding school for startups, creative people and tech entrepreneurs.

Our main program, a 9-week Full-Stack Coding Bootcamp (https://www.lewagon.com/brussels) (NOW also Part-time 24-week), is designed for complete beginners or "half-beginners" who really want to dive into programming and, above all, change their mindset. Learn to think like a developer, consider issues with new insight, and become more autonomous thanks to these newly acquired abilities. Our unique goal is to facilitate becoming an outstanding entrepreneur/developer who is able to code his/her own projects and to deeply understand technical issues.

#1 coding bootcamp worldwide, Le Wagon is active in Brussels since 2014. We are a passionate team of coaches (https://www.lewagon.com/brussels) (professional developers, designers, software engineers, lean experts,...).

Since January 2015, we've run 14 intensive & immersive coding bootcamps of 9 weeks, at BeCentral. Each time, 20+ entrepreneurs/aspiring-developers joined us from all around the world (literally - reaching us in Brussels from more than 45 different countries!) to learn to code with us and develop their own startup MVP (= minimum viable product).

Our next bootcamp will take place in July. If you want to enter our selection process, feel free to apply here (https://www.lewagon.com/apply/brussels).

In addition to our intensive 9-week Full time program and NOW 24-week part time program, we organise free evening workshops, open to everyone. Come & learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript and much more with us!
