Are you a woman who wants to learn how to make websites but don't know where to start? We have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners! This workshop is aimed at total beginners. You don't need to know anything about programming to participate. You just need to bring your willingness to learn and some curiousity
It will take place on the 23rd and 24th of February 2017 at Strategic Management Office, Emmaus House Complex, Awka.
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 Awka 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 10th of February 2017 !
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.
Meet us at the Strategic Management Office, Emmaus House Complex Awka.
Thursday 23rd February - Install Party/Registration
Friday 24th February - Workshop day
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 Awka, 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 Awka or you need assistance with accomodation - 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.
Why is it important to attend the Pre-install Party?
You'll have a chance not only to get all the required software ready for the workshop but also meet your coach and your group members. It will make you feel relaxed and prepared for your adventure with programming!
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.
These are our awesome Coaches!
We couldn't be here without the support from amazing people and organizations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality. If you want to contribute and support our goal, please get in touch
