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!
It will take place on 6th and 7th July, 2023 at Hamplus Technologies International [Hamplus Hub] in Abraka.
We believe 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 one of us – women programmers!
Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to Abraka but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 4th July by 11:59 WAT!
If you are a woman, know English and have a laptop, you can apply for our event! You don't need to know any technical stuff – our workshop is for people who are new to programming.
As a workshop attendee, you will:
We have space only for 25 - 30 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!
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 Abraka, can I attend?
Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles 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 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 Girls Abraka conference good for a total beginner?
As a workshop attendee, you will get a free ticket to Django Girls Abraka - conference for Python programmers. Even though you are new to programming, conference is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.
Is food provided?
Yes. Thanks to Django Girls Abraka, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
