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 two-day workshop for beginners!

We have joined forces with django girls Paris and we are bringing the two cities together, from the safety of our homes, with a common goal: learn how to program!

It will take place on the 8th and 9th of May 2020, online!! We want you to stay at home and be safe, but this doesn't mean that we can't have fun and learn! We will have a full 2 day online workshop were you will learn to build a website!

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 Birmingham but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 6th of May!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman and have a laptop and access to the internet, 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. We are trans-inclusive and welcome applications from all women.

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 Birmingham, can I attend?

Of course! It is an online event so you can join us from the comfort of your home!

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes. We have no hardware, so we expect you to use your own computer. 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 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.

Be a Mentor!

We would love to hear from you! Contact us if you're interested!
