Technology education for Canadians.

We design, deliver, and partner on technology education for Canadians and run programs for Ladies, Kids, Girls, Teens and Teachers. Our educational experiences cover everything from introductory HTML & CSS, to WordPress, Python, Ruby, Responsive Design, Photoshop and more. They are especially popular and successful because of the 4:1 ratio of learners to volunteer instructors at every workshop, which is only possible because of overwhelming support from the technology and startup communities in our Chapter!

“I stumbled across it while researching for a blog post, and thought if it ever came to Edmonton I would volunteer. The original post is here http://womeningamestudies.com/a-movement-encouraging-girls-to-code-and-make-games/ and portrays some of my excitement about creating female friendly spaces in tech.”
