Django Girls

Interested in programming and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners, free of charge!

It will take place on 27th August '16 at CIIE in Ahmedabad.

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!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are interested in coding, 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
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided

We have space only for 90 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

Application process closes on August 20th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by August 22nd (or sooner)!

Register

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 Ahmedabad, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Ahmedabad or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Ahmedabad - 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 food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our Sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
