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, free of charge! All that is required is motivation and readiness to learn!

It will take place on 7th of November at Detroit Labs in downtown Detroit, Michigan.

We believe that tech industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology and want to give you the opportunity to learn how to program!

Apply to attend!

If you are a woman and have a laptop you can apply to attend the tutorial! You don’t need to know anything technical - this workshop is for those who are new to programming.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend a one-day workshop where you will create your first website
  • have breakfast and lunch with attendees, provided by us

Application

The November 7th workshop is now full. We will still accept applications at this time, however they are for waiting list only. If a spot opens up, we will be sure to let you know.

Apply for Waitinglist

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No, this workshop is for beginners. You don’t need to know anything about it. If you have a little bit of technical knowledge however (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 the workshop.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It will be helpful to have Django installed before the workshop, but we don't expect you to install anything on your own. We will make sure that one of our coaches helps you out with this task if you'd like.

Is food provided?

Yes, breakfast, lunch, and snacks will be provided during the workshop.
