  • Co-Learn

    Participate in our suite of programming whether you’re an entrepreneur, student, or parent looking to level up your career.

    Build tangible skills in web, mobile, and design through workshops and classes.

    Code Chicago is a series of hands-on, mobile development, web programming and design workshops held at the innovation centers, where every participant will work with one another and join in the spirit of collaboration and learning. It is this aspect of education that we trust would resonate most with our participants — and that with an open atmosphere where no question is off limits, we see interesting and inspiring thinking about how to embrace the openness of technology as an opportunity palette — and to really push what might seem conventionally possible with a web browser, and a mobile device having an internet connection.
