National Learn to Code Day
Saturday, September 23, 2017, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Location: YSpace Markham, 169 Enterprise Blvd., 3rd Floor map
On September 23rd, 2017, Ladies Learning Code is hosting its fifth annual National Learn to Code Day -- the first and only event of its kind in Canada. On that day, over 1,500 Canadians will gather together in over 25 communities to challenge themselves to learn a new skill: Using Data to Solve Problems: An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Beginners
In partnership with Accenture, we'll build on our mission of teaching Canadians 21st century digital skills and encourage them to use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to make meaning of data.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are all around us - from Siri on your iPhone to Google Map suggestions, to recommendations for purchases during your Amazon check-out. While many of us may think AI and machine learning mean more robots and self-driving cars, at a fundamental level, they are about data - and ways to make meaning of data.
This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding, computer programming or data science, 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.)

Xiaojing Yan Art Exhibition
Out from among the tranquil woods
September 23, 2017 – January 7, 2018
Location: 216 Main Street Unionville (at Carlton Road) map
Xiaojing Yan is known for her intricate sculptural installations that
explore the intersections of the natural and cultural worlds. Her work
is at once simple and complex; concrete and abstract; personal and
universal. The material qualities of her work, significant on both
aesthetic and conceptual levels, are at the core of her practice. She
transforms lingzhi mushrooms, star anise, freshwater pearls and cicadae,
among others, to explore traditional Chinese mythology and folklore.
Ultimately, Yan revisits her own identity as a first generation
Canadian, while offering contemporary perspectives on issues of
mortality, belonging and contemplation.
About the Artist
Xiaojing Yan is a Chinese-Canadian artist working and living in Markham,
ON. She received an M.F.A on Sculpture from Indiana University of
Pennsylvania, USA and a B.F.A from Nanjing Arts Institution, China.
Yan’s work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally.
Yan has exhibited at Durham Art Gallery, Durham; Katzman Contemporary,
Toronto; The Latcham Gallery, Stouffville; Mississauga Art Gallery,
Mississauga; Lonsdale Gallery, Toronto; TRUCK Contemporary Art, Calgary;
Plug In Contemporary, Winnipeg; Surrey Art Gallery, Surrey; Glenhyrst
Art Gallery of Brant, Brantford; Artspace, Peterborough; and many more.
Her work was also featured at Art Toronto twice in 2012 and 2014. Varley
Art Gallery in Markham, Ontario will present her major solo exhibition
in 2017; and Suzhou Museum will present her first solo museum exhibition
in China in January 2018.
Yan’s work has been included in many collections and has done many
public art projects . Recent projects include: Cloudscape in collection
by Seneca College at Newnham Campus, Toronto; Moon Gate, a public
sculpture, commissioned by Jinji Lake Art Museum, Suzhou, China; Sound
of the Rain, a public wall sculpture, recently commissioned by Elora
Centre for the Arts.
Yan is also a recipient of numerous awards and grants, including the
2014 Outstanding Young Alumni Award from Indiana University of
Pennsylvania, the 2013 Mandarin Profile Awards of Fairchild TV, Project
Grant from the Canadian Council for the Arts, and The Chalmers Arts
Fellowship and Mid-career Grant from Ontario Arts Council.
The artist gratefully acknowledges the support of the Chalmers Arts
Fellowships program administered by the Ontario Arts Council.
