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 Basang, can I participate?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply, besides it's going to be a virtual workshop that would be done remotely. If you have financial limitation to secure an internet - let us know. We are willing to help you!

Do I need my own laptop?

Yes. We have no hardware give away, so we expect you to have your computer with you. It is also important for us that you will have a take-home project/assingment that 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 djangogirls virtual workshop good for a total beginner?

As a workshop participant you will have frr access to this event and would alos get help when needed. Even though you are new to programming, the virtual workshop is a good place to meet many interesting people in the field and find inspiration.
