Django Girls

Django Girls is a non-profit organization that wants to bring more women into the wonderful world of programming and technology. We're organising a free, one-day workshop for beginners that will teach you how to create a website using Python and Django.

It will take place on 25th of January at hub:raum in Berlin

We believe that 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 part of the technology community!

Workshops are free of charge.

Applications are now closed!

We are hoping to organise future events so if you are an English speaker and have a laptop, you can apply next time! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.

Applications are now closed! :(

Application process closed on January 7th. We are now reviewing all of the applicants and will inform about the results by 11th January 2015.

Thanks!

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 Berlin, can I attend?

Of course! If you are able to make it to Berlin, workshops will be in English, so if you have no trouble with speaking and understanding English - you 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.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Python and 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.

Is food provided?

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