I'm Sébastien, CTO at Le Wagon, a coding bootcamp for creative minds. You can find me on Twitter or GitHub as @ssaunier
I've been a web developer for some time now, and for the three last years I had the privilege to teach web development to amazing entrepreneurs. We started small back in 2014 with 16 people in Paris and now we are in 15 cities and still growing
Our approach of teaching is top down, staying in the highest layer (read the opposite of teaching assembler) possible to achieve results quick enough. We are not trying to replicate a Major in Computer Science. This way students can build MVPs with Ruby on Rails in a few days, it's very exhilarating for them. Before joining Le Wagon, a lot of them spent months trying to find a technical co-founder and were always frustrated of not being able to understand the technical bit.
I think this is the best achievement in technical education. Give some tools to creative minds, sit back and watch what they manage to do with them!
