What is Ladies Learning Code?

We're a Toronto-based not-for-profit organization providing women (and men*) the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly computer programming and other technical skills through hands-on workshops. We're all about showing people that learning to hack can be fun! Almost 2000 women (and men) have participated in one of our workshops since August 2011, and after receiving many requests to offer workshops outside of Toronto, we've decided to finally go for it! Vancouver, here we come!

Sponsored by Simon Fraser University

*Men are welcome to attend workshops (and they do!), but we request that you bring with you an additional female learner where possible.

Special thanks to our sponsor, Simon Fraser University (check out their new Digital Communications Certificate program!), and to Launch Academy for providing the venue.

Workshop Dates:

We're excited to be offering two individual one-day workshops in Vancouver in August. Join us for either of these fun, hands-on workshops:

Friday, August 24th: 10 am to 5 pm
TOPIC: Intro to HTML & CSS 

Saturday, August 25th, 10 am to 5 pm
TOPIC: Intro to HTML & CSS 

Why HTML and CSS?

If you are looking to get your feet wet when it comes to programming, then this is the workshop for you. HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a necessity if you are interested in things like web development, creating marketing emails, or even blogging! The web without HTML and CSS would be would be a world without colourful, pretty websites, not to mention the web applications we all use daily. It’s easy to learn, and was designed so that everyone - even non-programmers - can do it. No fancy programs are needed, just Notepad and a web browser!

This will be our fourth time offering our Intro to HTML & CSS workshop - it sells out every time! 

The Ladies Learning Code Introduction to HTML & CSS workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. During the session, you’ll learn:

  • Basic techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages
  • The building blocks of how HTML and CSS work together to create richer online experiences
  • How to create a rich website with images, video, and a CSS-defined layout
  • What resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)

Is this workshop for you?

This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding or computer programming, you’ve come to the right place! Our only expectation is that you know how to open up a web browser and do something online like checking your email. (But if you’re reading this, we’re pretty sure you know how to do that.)

Requirements:

  • You must bring your own laptop with wi-fi for which you have administrative permissions. Please be sure to bring your powercord.
  • Please note that workshops are taught in English.

*Are you quaified to help out at this workshop? Great - our workshops absolutely wouldn't be possible without the incredible developers who help us out! Please join our developer email list here.

What's Included?

  • A small student-to-instructor ratio (usually about 4:1)
  • A fun and inclusive learning envionment
  • A great venue (Launch Academy)
  • Catered lunch

What participants say about our workshops:

"Honestly, the set up of one instructor - four students is brilliant."

"I'm super impressed with the organizers and participants, and I think it's a really valuable initiative."

"[The best part of the workshop was] the positivity, helpfulness and eagerness to learn/teach of every person in the room."

"After years of teaching myself how to code, I wasn't sure how I'd find the collaborative experience of an LLC workshop - but it completely exceeded my expectations. The lead instructor was clear and thorough, and the volunteer instructors were always ready to throw new challenges at us the moment they saw we'd completed the current task. Solving a coding problem has always been exciting for me, but having a group of people equally excited about it was amazing!"

"[My favourite part was] the casual nature of things, and the fact that all the instructors walked around and helped out learners everywhere around the room - so I got to meet and talk to a bunch of people who were experienced and gain some perspectives. The food was great too. ;)"
