More Details

Applications are now Closed

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.

Can I apply if I don't live in Cape Town?

You are more than welcome to apply if you don't live in Cape Town. However, we are not able to offer transport or financial assistance.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but we wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own. We will have an installation party where coaches will help you install everything you need.

Do I get to attend PyConZa?

Yes! You do. Your ticket will be sponsored. Please note, the conference will run on the 6th-7th of October, you will need to able to attend both these days.

Is food provided?

Yes. Your ticket to PyConZa will include food.

Be a Coach!

We will contact you :)
