Join us Tuesday, February 19th in Ottawa as we welcome Heather Payne, Founder of HackerYou and Ladies Learning Code for a fireside chat!
Heather Payne is the founder of Ladies Learning Code, a Toronto-based not-for-profit startup that runs popular workshops for women (and men) who want to learn computer programming and other technical skills in a social and collaborative way. In 2012, she founded HackerYou as a way to bring more intensive technology learning experiences to Toronto and beyond. Recently she spent a year working on a project for the Mozilla Foundation: her job was to build a community of people and organizations in Toronto who care about raising youth as creators – not just consumers – of technology and the web. In December 2012, the project was granted $365,000 in funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. In her spare time, she enjoys building websites and furthering her knowledge of Ruby on Rails.
