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 26th of September 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.

Workshop location:

Use the entrance closer to the U-Bahn Voltastraße Map go to the left through the gate, around the side of the building Take the stairs in the far left end corner of the yard (there is a Wimdu sign at the door and balloons) or go around the second part of the building into the next yard, then there is an elevator (also decorated with a Wimdu sign and balloons) in the left hand corner. We are on the 4th floor.

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.
