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.

“Working at a local technology company I’ve seen first hand how dominated the industry is by males and want to see that change.”

“I believe women are meant to excel in coding, owing to their ultimate patience and attention to detail! But there are very few women in tech/who learn code, and since being able to write or understand basic code is almost like being able to communicate in the modern tech-ridden world, I would love to help more women get up to speed.”

“In 2013, I didn't know how to code. I took a Ladies Learning Code workshop and got hooked. I owe so much of my career to this amazing organization and I love inspiring other to learn.”
