On September 24th, 2016, Ladies Learning Code is hosting its fourth annual  National Learn to Code Day -- the first and only event of its kind in Canada. On that day, over 1,500 Canadians will gather together in over 25 communities to challenge themselves to learn a new skill: interactive storytelling and game making using HTML & CSS. 

In partnership with Shopify, we'll build on our mission of teaching Canadians 21st century digital skills and encourage them to tell their stories through one of the most popular digital mediums: gaming.

A special thank you to our local partner, Bioware, for their support of this event!

Why Interactive Storytelling & Game Making?

From video games to interactive stories, digital media is a powerful way to make your message, cause, or idea stand out in a 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 workshop, you will create a game, quiz, or interactive story that's centred on a case, community, or message that you care about while learning critical coding skills.
