Toronto: Ladies Learning Code HTML & CSS for Beginners: Learn to Build a Multi Page Website From Scratch

If you are looking to get your feet wet when it comes to programming, then this is the workshop for you.

Hey you! Have you joined the Ladies Learning Code mailing list? If not, join here.

What is Ladies Learning Code?

We’re a Canada wide not-for-profit organization providing women, *men and youth the opportunity to learn beginner-friendly technical skills in a social and collaborative way. We’re all about showing people that learning to code can be fun!

*Men are welcome to attend (and they do!), but we encourage you to bring an additional female learner where possible

Why HTML & CSS?

If you are looking to get your feet wet when it comes to programming, then this is the workshop for you. HTML and CSS are the backbone of all websites, and knowledge of them is a necessity if you are interested in things like web development, creating marketing emails, or even blogging! The web without HTML and CSS would be would be a world without colourful, pretty websites, not to mention the web applications we all use daily. It’s easy to learn, and was designed so that everyone – even non-programmers – can do it. No fancy programs are needed, just Notepad and a web browser!

The Ladies Learning Code Introduction to HTML & CSS workshop is designed to be a hands-on experience. During the session, you’ll build something like this and learn the following:  

  • Basic techniques and concepts that are translatable to other programming languages
  • The 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 beautiful multi-page website
  • What resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will)
 
Is this workshop for you?
 
This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding or computer programming, you’ve come to the right place! Our only expectation is that you know how to open up a web browser and do something online like checking your email. (But if you’re reading this, we’re pretty sure you know how to do that.)

What participants say about our programs:

“Honestly, the set up of one instructor – four students is brilliant.”

“I’m super impressed with the organizers and participants, and I think it’s a really valuable initiative”

“The best part of the workshop was] the positivity, helpfulness and eagerness to learn/teach of every person in the room.”

“After years of teaching myself to code, I wasn’t sure how I’d find the collaborative experience of an LLC workshop- but it completely exceed my expectations. The lead instructor was clear and thorough, and the volunteer instructors were always ready to throw new challenges at us the moment they saw we’d completed the current task. Solving a coding problem has always been exciting for me, but having a group of people equally excited about it was amazing!”

Hope to see you soon!

Red Tent: A Co-Created New Moon Women’s Circle

The Red Tent is a safe and sacred space where women gather together to rest, to create, to nourish, and to dream.

The Red Tent is a safe and sacred space where women gather together to rest, to create, to nourish, and to dream. In this intimate New Moon circle, we will sow the seeds of our intention that will manifest through our daily thoughts and actions as the moon waxes. 

A co-created event. A space to just BE.

It’s not a workshop, simply a warm and safe space to gather and share. There will be minimal facilitation but the idea is to honour each of the women in the circle and the magic that’s created in the spaces between us.

What it looks like:

    • 6:30 pm: Doors open – settle in and help us create sacred space
    • 6:45-8:00 pm: Sharing Circle
    • 8:00-9:00 pm: Pot-luck Dinner and Red Tent crafting
    • 9:00-9:30 pm: Closing Circle

What to bring:

As we nourish our souls, let’s also nourish our bodies by sharing a communal meal. Please bring a vegetarian dish to share.

You may wish to bring a reading or idea to share, an insight into the Virgo moon, a poem, or quote that inspires you.

If you want to perform a song, dance, poem, drum solo, monologue…we’re here to witness your magnificence!

You are welcome to step up and lead a short (5 minute) group acitivity: a guided meditation, movement, or breathwork exercise

Weave your experience and intention into the fabric of our Red Tent (literally). Bring colourful bits of cloth, totems or ornaments to attach to our Red Tent. We have some beads and other supplies so you can create your own ornament onsite.

This circle is open to all women-identified people. If you need a safe space to connect with other wise women, this circle is for you, whether you have a menstural cycle or not. 

More Information about the Red Tent

  • A place to honour nature’s cycles and connect with a circle of wise women
  • A place to rest and restore, to stop forcing the answers and instead allow them to arise.
  • A place that honours and values our journey of womanhood.

Shecosystem’s mission is to honour the feminine in our working lives, and – whether we menstruate or not – part of that is recognizing that we are creative beings governed by cycles. Within this Red Tent, we care for ourselves and each other. We mark nature’s cycles with ceremony. We use our wisdom and creativity to heal ourselves and our planet. We are the priestesses of our own temple.

Why the New Moon? 

The new moon is a time when many women bleed. It is also the darkest time of the month, when we are likely to feel tired and inwardly focussed. During this vulnerable time, we gather with other women to rest and reflect, offer healing, and help each other tune in to our intuition.

The new moon is also a powerful time to set intentions – in this darkness, we are connected to our intuition and open to receiving insight from the depths.
