Django Girls

If you want to find out what programming is all about, we have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on Saturday 22nd of June, 2019, between 9am and 6pm at:

Elements
Transistorstraat 55A, 1322 CK Almere

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 preference will be given to 👩, but if there are spots left, 👨 are also very welcome! Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 19th of May 2019!

Apply for the workshop!

All you need to be able to attend the event is loads of curiosity and your own laptop. You don't need to know any technical stuff – our workshop is for people who are completely 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, we will provide you with food, drinks and snacks

We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now closed :(

Application process closed on May 19th. Thank you to everyone who applied! You'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by June 7th (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 Almere, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply.

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 the workshop.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Python and Django installed before the workshop, but we don'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.

Am I too young/old to apply?

Definitely not! There is 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.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to Elements, snacks, drinks and lunch will be served during the workshop.

Become a Coach!

We are still looking for more coaches and would be delighted if you would like to join us and share your knowledge! You can read all about what you need to be a Django Girls coach here.
