Le Wagon launches coding bootcamp in Cape Town

Le Wagon has announced that its coding bootcamps are now available in South Africa, with a coding school springing up in Cape Town.

The city bowl will play host to the Le Wagon coding bootcamp thanks to a partnership with the Red & Yellow Creative School of Business.

Having launched bootcamps in Mauritius and Casablanca last year, Cape Town was chosen as the next location as the coding school specialist look to expand further into the African continent. Over the last eight years, the brand has grown significantly, with campuses in 45 locations across the globe.

“For years Red & Yellow has been South Africa’s leading authority in digital marketing education. We have always focused on next-generation skills, and we realized that coding has become a crucial part of this. Hence the decision to partner with the leading coding bootcamp in the world,” Verusha Maharaj, MD at Red & Yellow and lead at Le Wagon South Africa, regarding the partnership.

“Equipping graduates with the right skills in key sectors is critical to driving transformation and supporting inclusive growth. Coding bootcamps respond to this challenge, offering a practical and intensive format to both entry-level and mature learners, providing them with the ability to become a competent junior web developer within just three months,” adds Ryan Brouwer, manager of Le Wagon, Cape Town.

In terms of the curriculum, Le Wagon has highlighted the bootcamps in Web Development and Data Science.

“Within 360 hours of study, coding, digital exercises, and group projects, to build their own web applications from scratch or work autonomously on data science projects. Available in full-time (9 weeks) or part-time (24 weeks) formats, the programme equips students with the requisite skills and internationally recognised certification for future-fit professions across the globe,” explains a press release sent to Hypertext.

Along with bootcamps, Le Wagon will also be hosting free coding workshops and tech talks twice a month. The first Cape Town workshop is taking place on 15th June, with the topic being ‘How to code your first landing page’.

Le Wagon Cape Town’s campus will be based at the Red & Yellow Creative School of Business in Woodstock, with its first full-time Web Development bootcamp taking place on 29th August.
