Django Girls

This event is for females who don't have programming experience and want to build their website. We are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on 21st of November in Doha at Tornado tower 5th floor.

We believe that programming can be intimidating and presumed to be only for super geeks. We want you to have the opportunity to learn how to program and become one of us - female programmers!

Workshops are free of charge, so make sure you don't miss out! As we do have limited seats, we encourage you to show us your motivation. Apply as soon as we open registration on 28th of October!

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.

Django Girls Doha is a part of bigger initiative: Django Girls. It is a non-profit organization and events are organized by volunteers in different places of the world.

Our Coaches!

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.

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 QCRI, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
