Django Girls

Interested in IT but you don’t know if it’s something for you? 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 Friday September 16th, 2022 at ING at Bijlmerdreef 106, 1102 CT in Amsterdam.

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. If you are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until August 25th, 2022!

Apply for the workshop!

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:

  • Create your first website using the Django Framework, and Python
  • During our event, food is provided
  • Have fun and be inspired by our speakers and mentors!
  • Surprise prize for the winner of the day!

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!

Is Django Girls Amsterdam suitable for a total beginner?

Yes! The workshop is focused on total beginners. So even though it might help to go through the tutorial sooner, you don't need to know any programming to join the workshop and finish the tutorial. We are going to reach out to you a few days prior to the workshop to help out with the instalments.

 

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 food provided?

Yes. Thanks to ING, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops :)

Be a Coach!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a coach! Apply here if you're interested ❤️
