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 2, April, 2022 at Col. John C. Robinson American Center in Addis Ababa.

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.  Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until March 18!

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 Addis Ababa, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be virutal and conducted in English and Amharic, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English or Amharic - you should apply. 

Do I need a laptop?

Yes. We host the workshop virtually, so we expect you to use your own computer at home. 

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 prior to the workshop.

Is Django Addis Ababa good for a total beginner?

Django Addis Ababa is beginner friendly.
