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've enjoyed Ladies Learning Code as a student, as a parent of a student, as a mentor, and as a teacher. It's re-energizing to learn and to be around people who want to learn. I love the moment where you move from being intimidated by how complicated a thing is, to _enjoying_ how complicated it is.”

“I love the excitement as someone sees the effect of their first piece of code, and realizes it's not as difficult as they expected. ”
