Hey you! Have you joined the Ladies Learning Code mailing list? If not, join here.
What is Ladies Learning Code?
We're a Canada wide not-for-profit organization providing women, *men and youth the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly technical skills in a social and collaborative way. We're all about showing people that learning to code can be fun!
*Men are welcome to attend (and they do!), but we encourage you to bring an additional female learner where possible
You've been thinking about ecommerce and wondering how you can use your skills to help people (or you!) sell cool stuff online. In this workshop, we will show you how to customize online stores on the Shopify platform and give you the tools needed to make a business out of it.
Shopify's ecommerce solution already supports over 160,000 stores. Knowing how to customize themes on Shopify gives web designers/developers a desirable set of skills that they can use to grow their business.
Do you want more control over how you show collections on the homepage? Need to show a coupon code for any product that is available in chartreuse and part of the 'Winter Solstice' collection? This workshop will teach you all you need to know to make that happen.
What will you learn?
In this workshop, we'll discuss how you can use Liquid, Shopify's nifty templating language, to pull information from your store and alter the webpage layout. You can also open a free Partner account, which you can use during and after the workshop to work on Shopify projects of your own.
We'll start with an overview of Shopify's "theme environment" and best practices that will save you time and effort in your customizations. From there you'll learn how to make alternative templates for your store's products and pages to provide more variety in your store's look.
By the end of the day, your store will be transformed from an "out-of-the box template" to a wonderfully unique design.
This workshop is for beginners but we recommend some very basic HTML & CSS knowledge. Previous participation in our Intro to HTML & CSS workshop counts!
You'll also need a free Partner account to set up a development Shopify store to work on during this workshop. If you don't have one already, click here to open a free Partner account. You will need a Paypal account to signup, but that’s only so you can get paid (Shopify offers a revenue share to Partners that create stores on the Shopify platform). Workshop participants will be given demo products for their store on the day of the workshop.

What participants say about our programs:
"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 to code, I wasn't sure how I'd find the collaborative experience of an LLC workshop- but it completely exceed my expectations. The lead instructor was clear and throrough, 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 havin a group of people equally excited about it was amazing!"
Hope to see you soon!
