Django Girls

If you are a woman and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on 13th, May, 2017 (Saturday) at SEMI90 (Templergraben 90) in Aachen, Germany.

We believe the IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. We want to give you an opportunity to learn how to program and become one of us – women programmers!

Workshop is free of charge! Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 7th, May, 2017!

Apply for the workshop!

If you know English and have a laptop, you can apply! You don't need to know any technical stuff – our workshop is for people who are new to programming. Everyone is welcome but women have priority!

As a workshop participant you will:

  • attend a one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided

We have space only for 30 people, so hurry!

Applications are now open!

Application process closes on May 8th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by May 9th (or sooner)!

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! Workshop is for beginners. You don’t need to know anything about it. However, if you have a little bit of technical knowledge (i.e. you know what HTML or CSS are) you still can apply!

I am not living in Aachen, Germany, can I attend?

Of course! Workshop will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. If you need help getting to Aachen or with booking flights or hotel in Aachen - let us know. We are willing to help you!

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes. We have no hardware, so we expect you to bring your computer with you. It is also important for us that you will take home everything you’ll write and create during workshops.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own.We will make sure that one of our coaches will help you out with this task.

Is the workshop good for a total beginner?

Yes, it is for beginners! It will be a good place to meet many interesting people and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to Lancom snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
