Django Girls

If you are a woman and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on 17th February, 2018 at Arts & Theatre Complex, Benue State University, Makurdi in Benue.

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 Benue but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to provide alot of souvenir and also assist some participants needing help. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 17th February, 2018 !

Apply for the workshop!

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.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend a one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided and alot of other goodies.

We have space only for 50 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

Application process closes on February 15th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by February 15th (or sooner)!

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!

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.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our Sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
