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 Saturday February 3rd, 2018 at Xebia Academy (GoDataDriven) in Amsterdam.

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 Amsterdam 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 January 3rd, 2018!

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:

  • create your first website using the Django Framework, and Python
  • during our event, food is provided
  • Have fun and be inspired!

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

Applications are now open!

Applications close on January 3rd, 2018 and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by January 12th (or sooner)!

Apply now!

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 the Netherlands or near Amsterdam, 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 Amsterdam or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Amsterdam - 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 Django Girls Amsterdam suitable for a total beginner?

Yes! The workshop is focused on total beginners. So even though it might help to go through the tutorial sooner, you don't need to know any programming to join the workshop and finish the tutorial.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our sponsors and the organizers, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops :)

Be a Coach!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a coach! Apply here if you're interested ❤️
