If you are a woman and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a two-days workshop for beginners! You need no prior coding knowledge!
It will take place on 26 August, 2023 at American Space Abuja, City Library No 2 Gwani Street Wuse Zone 4, Abuja, Nigeria.
There will be an install fest a day before the main workshop (25th August) at Code Campus International, DBM Plaza, Suite 207, Aminu Kano Crescent, Wuse 2, Abuja, Nigeria.
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!
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!
How will the workshop work?
We have a Friday evening installfest to get your computer set up. Then Saturday we'll build a project using Django, HTML & CSS. You'll work in small groups and we'll have plenty of tutors on hand to help if you get stuck.
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 create during the workshop.
Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?
No! We'll be having a Friday evening installfest with coaches on hand to help.
Is Django Girls for women only?
Men can apply and are welcome at Django Girls events. However, women are given priority.
Is food provided?
Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during the workshop.
I don't live in the area, can I attend?
Of course! At this time we are not able to offer travel scholarships, however.
Why are you doing this?
Because we want to get more women involved in technology.
These are our super duper and amazingly talented Django Girls Abuja Coaches!
