We want to inspire women to fall in love with programming.

We organize free Python and Django workshops, create open sourced online tutorials and care about curating amazing first experiences with technology.

About

Django Girls is a non-profit organization that empowers and helps women to organize free, one-day programming workshops by providing tools, resources and support. It was born in July 2014 in Berlin and started by two Polish girls: Ola Sitarska and Ola Sendecka.

Mission

Our goal is to bring more amazing women into the world of technology and increase the diversity in the Django community. We believe that technology is for people and everyone should be able to build it. We are making technology more approachable by creating simple tools and resources designed with empathy.

Workshops

Each Django Girls event is a free, one-day workshop for 30-60 people about building your first application using HTML, CSS, Python and Django. A typical workshop takes 8 hours and people work in small, 3-person groups with a coach dedicated to each group.

Tutorial

During the workshop, attendees follow a tutorial written especially for this purpose. The tutorial is also open sourced and available for free. It covers creating your blog application from scratch, including deployment to Python Anywhere.
