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.

& Mentors

Carolyn Marshall
Software Engineer

“I've always loved technology but didn't see it as a career option until I was on what I considered to be a more 'accessible' career path. I quit my job, went back to school, and have been loving IT ever since! I know first-hand that women and girls will only pursue tech as a skill, hobby, or career if they are exposed to it and encouraged. I love helping girls and women of any age realize that they are not only capable of learning to code, but they can be awesome at it! It doesn't hurt that it's a ton of fun too.”

Jessica Duarte
Lead of Instructor Experience

“I became a web developer thanks to a workshop I took at LLC. LLC changed my life! I have the unique privilege of having experienced LLC as a student, a mentor, an instructor and a member of its accepting community. In each role I have witnessed the same thing: deeply committed individuals putting everything of themselves into teaching a skill that is quickly becoming as fundamental as reading and writing.”

Jeff Andersen

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

Angelina Fabbro


“Because I was told for years, in so many ways, to not learn to code by many insecure people who in the end weren’t looking out for me, but for themselves. It was shitty. I’ve seen a lot of other women go through this, and I want to be the person that explains to them that they should do whatever they want, that it’s not hard to start coding, and let people see for themselves just what they are capable of.”

Alex Ruaux
Freelance Web Designer and Developer

“Having been fortunate in the inspiring and supportive people who have helped me get to where I am today, I value the importance of quality face-to-face mentoring and am passionate about helping others experience new things and learn new skills. I also feel strongly that the best way to change the perception of 'coding' as a boring, nerdy and male-only domain is to help open people's eyes to what a wonderful and empowering skill it really is. I'm also passionate about 3D Printing and love spending time tinkering with it at home.”

Rosemary Sanchez

“As a female developer, I feel it is important to make programming an accessible, positive experience for those wanting to learn. Being able to support other females is especially important to me as I want them to feel as empowered as their male counterparts, as both genders can contribute a lot to this industry. It's also a great medium for expression, learning, and building.”

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”

Tammy Lee
Senior Web Developer
Top Draw Inc.

“I'm passionate about advocating women in STEM occupations! I'm also a huge advocate of digital literacy and volunteer on the SMBYEG committee. LLC is a great workshop series and I certainly don't mind helping it out.”
