Thank you for your interest in Django Girls Barcelona! If you learned about our workshop late, do not worry as we will be organizing it again in 2016. Be sure to check regularly for updates on the main Django Girls events page.

In the meantime you can start reading the Django Girls Tutorial and start tinkering on your own before the next edition! :)

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! Workshop is 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 do not live in Spain, can I still attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English and Spanish, so if you have no trouble speaking and understanding either of those languages - 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 workshops.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but we don't expect you to install anything on your own. We will make sure that one of our coaches helps you out with this task.

Is food provided?

Yes. We will provide snacks and lunch for the day of the workshop.
