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.

“ I've enjoyed Ladies Learning Code as a student, as a parent of a student, as a mentor, and as a teacher. It's re-energizing to learn and to be around people who want to learn. I love the moment where you move from being intimidated by how complicated a thing is, to _enjoying_ how complicated it is.”

“I love the excitement as someone sees the effect of their first piece of code, and realizes it's not as difficult as they expected. ”
