Django Girls Busia

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 1st, SEPTEMBER, 2018 at BUSITEMA UNIVERSITY MAIN HALL in BUSIA.

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 meals are provided by us !

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
  • Get a chance to meet other ladies in the tech world
  • Interact with the organisers and some of the sponsors
  • Be fed by us: during our event, food is provided

Applications to attend or coach our First Django Girls Busia Event

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!

Is food provided?

Yes, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.

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 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.
