The mission of the workshop is to provide an inclusive opportunity for anyone to learn code, including beginner’s of coding, women, men and others who may often feel un-welcomed to enter the world of coding or are hesitant to start. The workshops provide a social and collaborative environment while promoting careers in technology.
“Our Ladies Learning Code workshops offer female-identified and male-identified, trans, and non-binary adults hands-on, project-based learning experiences that are designed to give beginners the skills and confidence they need to become digital creators,” states the Canada Learning Code website.

This workshop will allow participants to learn HTML and CSS, which is an essential skill for web development to create marketing materials, company domains and blog sites.
Participants can expect to learn basic techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages, building blocks of how HTML and CSS work together to create richer online experiences, how to create a rich website with images, video, and a CSS-defined layout, how to create a multi-page website and what resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home.
