Coding School Le Wagon launches first part-time bootcamp in Brussels


The opportunity for freelancers or full-time employees to learn coding while working.

After having already trained more than 4,800 people in web development with its famous intensive 9-week program, Le Wagon, major coding school in Europe, announces the launch of a part-time program to allow employees and freelancers to learn to code in 24 weeks.

This Brussels launch follows the one made earlier this year in London, which recently welcomed a first promotion of 16 part-time employees.

Not everybody can devote 9 full weeks to learn web development. We’ve had demand for a flexible bootcamp for freelancers and entrepreneurs who want to become technical and/or improve their skills whilst still retaining their current job or freelance projects. We are excited that this new program is gradually being extended to Wagon campuses in France, Germany, Belgium and around the world,” Said Boris Paillard, CEO of Le Wagon and Ana Seré, general manager of Le Wagon Brussels.

The program is exactly the same as the 9-week and aims to change people’s lives through learning to code. It covers both front-end and back-end web development, giving the students the skills and tools to start a career in web development (as employees or freelancers), product management, or tech entrepreneurship. The course is spread across evenings and some weekend days over 24 weeks.

The first session is starting on September 14th and applicants can apply via this link.
