Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to ABRAKA 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 20TH JULY, 2018!

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 ABRAKA, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to ABRAKA or you need assistance with accomodation - 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.

Why is it important to attend the Pre-install Party?

You'll have a chance not only to get all the required software ready for the workshop but also meet your coach and your group members. It will make you feel relaxed and prepared for your adventure with programming!

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
