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!

“Being a female in the tech industry you really notice firsthand just how under represented women are in the programming community. The LLC workshops are a great way to begin to bridge that gap and get women excited about coding. I always come home feeling inspired and energized.”

“Ladies Learning Code is such an important organization during a time when women and minorities are so underrepresented in tech. I started at Ladies Learning Code in 2013 as a learner and the inclusive and non-intimidating learning environment had me hooked. ”

“I believe women are meant to excel in coding, owing to their ultimate patience and attention to detail! But there are very few women in tech/who learn code, and since being able to write or understand basic code is almost like being able to communicate in the modern tech-ridden world, I would love to help more women get up to speed.”

“I've read somewhere that programming is the closest thing we have to magic. It allows you to create things with words only. I think everyone should try it.”
