Nelson, Here We Come!


The Victoria Day long weekend is always a fun time here in Canada — lots of BBQing, time spent with family, and maybe even some surprise snow shovelling if you live in Alberta!

But this May long weekend, we’re adding an awesome new activity to that list: learning HTML & CSS!

We’re thrilled to announce that Ladies Learning Code’s newest Chapter in Nelson, BC will be launching on Saturday, May 20th!  This workshop will be hosted at the Kootenay Career Development Society on Vernon Street, and tickets are still available!

In August of 2011, we hosted our first ever workshop in Toronto and today we are adding Peterborough to the growing list of 29+ Chapters that include Vancouver, Ottawa, Halifax, London, Edmonton, Montreal and Calgary. We are thrilled to be able to provide the same beginner-friendly tech workshops that are so beloved by other communities to the folks of Nelson and surrounding area!

RoseSo what does this mean for Nelson-ites? First and foremost, it means that you are now going to have access to the same fun, collaborative, and beginner-friendly coding workshops that are beloved by tens of thousands of your fellow Canadians! At Ladies Learning Code, we believe in digital literacy for all Canadians, including those who live in smaller communities. And we are so grateful to Chapter Lead Rose Hoeher (pictured here) for inviting us out to Nelson and her incredible leadership in getting programming off the ground in the region.

Interested in getting involved? We’re always on the lookout for volunteers who want to lend a hand! Please reach out to Rose (contact info below) for more details.

Nelson, we’ll see you soon!
