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!

Front End UX Developer
“Jen is a Front-End UX developer in Benevity's Victoria office. Outside of coding she also gets pretty nerdy about local food & diversity in technology. ”
“"LLC is perfect for me because I can expand my skills as a learner at some of the LLC workshops and my teaching skills as a mentor at others."”
“"Not all people, and especially not all girls and women, get the opportunities I've had and Ladies Learning Code lets me pay it forward."”
“"I love to share my passion for web development. The ‘lightbulb’ moments are what do it for me – people realizing they can actually use technology to produce something for themselves."”
