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 Febuary 22, 2020 at the Arlington Career Center in Arlington, Virginia.
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 lunch is provided. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until January 22, 2020!
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 60 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!
This workshop will take place at the Arlington Career Center, which is located at 816 S Walter Reed Dr, Arlington, VA 22204.
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, and that knowledge will be very helpful!
I don't live in Arlington, can I attend?
Of course! Workshops are open to anyone in the area - so you should apply. However, we can't offer any sort of financial aid towards transportation, so take that into consideration.
Should I bring my own laptop?
Yes, if you can. However, we do have some hardware available if you need it.
Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?
It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but we wouldn't
expect you to install anything on your own.
That said, we are hosting an optional installation "party" the day before the workshop (February 21, 2020) so that you can hit the ground running when you come on Saturday!
Is food provided?
Yes! Snacks and lunch will be provided during the workshop.
