Django Girls

If you are a woman and you 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 Saturday, October 3rd, 2015 at Fusionbox, located at 2031 Curtis Street Denver, CO 80205.

We believe that 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 a programmer!

Workshops are free of charge. Don’t wait too long - you can apply for a pass only until September 15th, 2015!

Apply for a pass!

If you are a woman, you know English, and have a laptop, you can apply for a pass! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend one-day Django workshops during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us - during workshops, food is provided

We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

The application process closes on September 15th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by September 21st (or sooner!).

Register

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 is) you still can apply!

I do not live in Colorado. Can I still attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no trouble with speaking and understanding English, you should 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.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but we don't expect you to install anything on your own. We will make sure that one of our coaches will help you with this task.

Is food provided?

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