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 Abia State , can I attend?
Of course! Registration is open to all, however if you live outside Port Harcourt, you should be able to cater for your transportation and accomodation costs as we might not be able to do so.
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.
What is the format of the workshop? What if I have trouble keeping up?
You will work in a small group of just 2 to 3 attendees. A coach will be assigned to each group, and your coach will work closely with you throughout the day to help with any problems that you may have. You will work at your own pace, assisted by your coach, so you don't need to worry about keeping up with the entire workshop.
What are the criteria for acceptance?
Our goal is to find people who really want to make the most of this opportunity, who are motivated enough to continue learning on their own, who are not afraid of challenges, who could become part of the community, and could encourage others to learn programming.
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 Django Abia good for a total beginner?
Even though you are new to programming,the event is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration. 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!
Is food provided?
Yes. Thanks to our Sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
We couldn't be here without the support from amazing people and organizations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality. If you want to contribute and support our goal, please get it touch
