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! You need no prior coding knowledge!
It will take place on 24th April, 2021.
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 – rockstar programmers!
Fun fact: This is the first Virtual Django Girls Workshop in Africa.

Applications for registration is open now!!
We have space only for 60 participants, so make sure to fill 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!
Should I use my own laptop?
Yes. We have no hardware, so we expect you to have a computer available, preferably also a webcam, as the event will be virtual. 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.
I am not living in Abuja, can I attend?
Yes! Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this event will be virtual.
Is Django Girls for women only?
Men can apply and are welcome at Django Girls events. However, women are given priority.
Why are you doing this?
Because we want to get more women involved in technology.
These are our super awesome and talented Django Girls Abuja Coaches!
