If you are a female between 18 and 100 and you 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 20th February 2016 in Belfast at Farset Labs, Weavers Court, Linfield Rd, Belfast BT12 5GH, We believe that 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 - female programmers!
Workshops are free of charge! Applications are now closed , but keep and eye out for our next event or e-mail us on [email protected]!
If you are a woman, you know English and have a laptop - you can apply for a pass! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.
We are trans-inclusive and welcome applications from ALL women.
As a workshop attendee you will:
We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to complete the form very carefully!
What is Django?
Django is a coding tool that allows you to build web sites using the Python programming language.
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 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. Snacks and lunch will be served during the workshop.
Is there going to be an exam or test?
No! Our aim is to introduce you to the world of programming and technology in an environment where you'll feel safe to learn and explore at your own pace.
Are Django Girls workshops only for females?
No! All genders can apply. We don't want to get men out of programming; we just want to bring more women in.
We couldn't be here without the support from amazing people and organizations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality. If you want to contribute and support our goal, please get in touch: [email protected]
