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 5th, may, 2018 in kolping guest house, world bank husing estate ,umuahia.

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!

Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to CITY but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 30th april!

Apply for the workshop!

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

As a workshop attendee you will:

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

We have space only for 50 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

Application process closes on April 30th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by march 1st (or sooner)!

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! Workshops are 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 Abia, can I attend?

Of course! Registration is open to all, however if you live outside Abia, Umuahia, you should be able to cater for your transportation and accomodation costs as we might not be able to do so. In the case where you really want to attend but can't help it due to financial constraints, send us a mail at [email protected] explaining your situation and we would offer help if we can. Note however that financial support is not guaranteed.

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 Python 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 this event good for a total beginner?

Absolutely!!! Don't let the impostor syndrome hold you back from attending. You would get to meet beginners like you as well as experienced programmers who would guide you through the process of building your first website. You also have a chance to connect with the Tech network that would help you in your coding journey.

Am I too young / Old to apply?

No! We have no upper or lower age limit for the workshop. We feel that women of any age can be highly motivated to learn and succeed in this field.

Be a coach!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a coach!/mentor Contact us if you're interested ❤️
