National Learn to Code Day


On September 24, 2016, Ladies Learning Code is hosting its fourth annual National Learn to Code Day — the first and only event of its kind in Canada.

This year, in partnership with Shopify, they will build on a mission of teaching learners 21st-century digital skills and encourage them to tell their story through one of the most popular digital mediums: gaming. From video games to interactive stories, digital media is a powerful way to make your message, cause, or idea stand out in our crowded online world. Canada has become a major leader in the video game industry yet, like most technology, only a small percentage of games are built by women.

In this hands-on, beginner-friendly workshops across Canada, participants will create a game, quiz or interactive story that’s centred on a cause, community or message they care about while learning critical coding skills along the way.
