I am not living in Bangalore, 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 come to Bangalore or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Bangalore - 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 own wifi-enabled laptop with you. It is also important for us that you will take home everything you’ll write and create during workshops.
