Django Girls

If you are a female 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 November 7th at The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in the heart of Dublin. We believe that 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 - female programmers!

Workshops are free of charge.

If you are a woman, you know English and have a laptop - you can apply. The workshops are female friendly rather than female only - If you are a man and wish to apply that's fine but first preference for places is given to Women. 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

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

Applications are now closed

You can still apply, but will be added to the waiting list. We will notify you when a place is available.

Apply

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, we will place instructions on installation in a email to all with directions to workshop but there will be people on hand on the day if there are difficulties with installation. We will make sure that one of our coaches will help you out with this task.

Is Django Girls for women only?

No! All genders can apply. We want to bring more diverse community into programming.

NOTE: This event is for 18 years and over. If you have any questions, you can contact us.
