Django Girls is a worldwide initiative for women to learn how to code. This is the second time it's been hosted in Chester and we can't wait.
It will take place on Saturday 6th June 2020 at Code Nation .
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!
As a workshop attendee you will:
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 Chester, can I attend?
Of course! Everyone is welcome to attend no matter where you're from. If you need financial aid to get to Chester or you need assistance with travelling to Chester - let us know. We are willing to help you!
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.
Is food provided?
Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
We couldn't be here without the support from amazing people and organisations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality. If you want to contribute and support our goal, please get in touch: [email protected]
