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!

Our Victoria Chapter team was also honour at the annual VIATEC awards on June 24th, 2016! The team took home the award for Member of the Year. Dan Gunn, chief executive at VIATEC had this to say about the team: “Ladies Learning Code have really made a difference in our community in a short time. Their efforts to teach valuable coding skills to women of all ages is playing a significant role in encouraging more [women] to enter the tech sector and to use those skills as entrepreneurs."
