The Code:Mobile is Ladies Learning Code’ s newest and biggest initiative to inspire and educate Canadians through teaching beginner-friendly computer programming and other technical skills in a social and collaborative way. Think: a computer lab on wheels.
YuKonstruct, in partnership with Yukon Women in Trades and Technology (YWITT), hosted the Code:Mobile squad to run several workshops- some for kids, some for women, and some for everyone!
These workshops sparked a huge amount of interest, especially among Yukon women! All 20 spots filled up in our first workshop for women, so we opened another. Then another. And then another! “We just had no idea how many Yukon women were interested in learning code! The turnout completely exceeded our expectations. ” –Heidi from YWITT.
All partners involved in these workshops were thrilled with the high levels of interest and involvement. The Code: Mobile squad mentioned that they “loved every workshop here and can feel so much love and support from the community”. Yukoners clearly have a desire and drive to learn code, so for that reason, we hope to host more workshops of the sort and try to bring up Code:Mobile again!
Thanks to everyone involved and to everyone who came out!
