In this session, Heather will share lessons learned from three years of teaching people how to code - first through founding the Canadian not-for-profit Ladies Learning Code, and then through running Canada's original programming bootcamp, HackerYou. She'll share stories of lives changed, amazing projects created by relative beginners, as well as the challenges involved in teaching beginners to code, and how to overcome them. You'll leave this session feeling inspired about the next generation of developers, and maybe even motivated to do your part to expose more beginners to the amazing world of creating - not just consuming - technology and the web. It might leave you looking at the junior developers at your company through a new lens.
