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 Benin City, can I attend?

Yes, You can! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - 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 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. In fact, that is what our pre-install party helps you with!

Is Django Girls workshop good for a total beginner?

Yes, it is! And you will get to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

Yes. Lunch and Snacks will be served during workshops.
