In recent years, Halifax has been a hidden gem among Canada’s tech community. It recently became the country’s fifth biggest tech hub with organizations like Digital Nova Scotia, Volta Labs and Ladies Learning Code leading the way. Located at Volta Labs, we have been running our Web Development Bootcamp and Intro to Web Development course out of Halifax for almost a year and have hosted events in the community such as the popular Coders and Creators event.
