Our adult programming offers women (and men) hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators.

Our workshops and educational events are open to adults of all ages. Workshops cover everything from introductory HTML & CSS, to WordPress, Python, Ruby, web design and more. They are especially popular and successful because of the 4:1 ratio of students to volunteer instructors at every workshop, which is only possible because of overwhelming support from the technology and startup communities in the cities where we operate.

Jeff Jones
Freelance User Experience Designer

“I’m passionate about being creative and being able to work with people to “make cool stuff”, so having an opportunity to teach some of the ways of doing these things to the general public feels great. I’ve taught Front-End Web development in various capacities (and varied topics) at the college level and I love the concept of Ladies Learning Code opening things up to anybody who wants to learn to code a little or see if it is something that will interest them moving forward. So now that I have a little one, I’m more aware of how important it is going to be to make concepts like coding and being creative with tech fun, interesting and inclusive to generations growing up in the middle of all of this tech”

“I heard about Ladies Learning Code from one of my peers in my program at Georgian and she asked me if I was interested in being a mentor, and I love learning and helping others learn so I said yes!”

“Ladies Learning Code is a fantastic organization and I'm happy to have a chance to contribute to its mission.”

Elina Dorokhova

“I like working with the Web. It's my occupation, my passion and my hobby. I wanted to share my knowledge, experience and help people to learn things which I love the most.”

Kasun Peiris

“ I’m really passionate to help others to learn code. All the workshops are really fun and enjoyable and I definitely like to contribute my time to LLC.”

Jesse Skinner

“It's very rewarding to spend the day helping out at a Ladies Learning Code workshop. I always come home feeling inspired and energized. I enjoy teaching people how to write code, and the low student:mentor ratio makes for a really fun and productive classroom. I would like to see more women in the industry, and I think women-focused workshops are a great way to encourage that.”
