Django Girls

Do you identify as a woman or as non-binary? Want to learn how to make websites? We have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners! 🚀

The workshop will take place  virtually from 9am - 6:00pm on Friday 29 April 2022. You'll work through a tutorial in small groups with a coach, so you'll be able to learn at your own pace.

Sometimes, it only takes a few like-minded people and a bit of a helping hand to show you how much you're capable of. We want to show you it’s possible, no matter how old you are, what you’ve studied before, how good you are at maths and what others tell you. All you'll need to succeed at the workshop is determination and an interest in coding.

Workshop is free of charge and is a virtual event. You will need your own laptop, good internet connection and an enthusiasm to learn.

Django Girls Bristol workshop will be held virtually on 29th April 2022 from 9AM - 5:30PM.

 

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, even if you have a little bit of technical knowledge (i.e. you know what HTML or CSS are) you can still apply!

What are the criteria for acceptance?

Our goal is to find people who really want to make the most of this opportunity, who are motivated enough to continue learning on their own, who are not afraid of challenges, who could become part of the community, and could encourage others to learn programming.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before the main workshop on Friday 29th April 2022, but we don't expect you to install anything on your own. 

What if I have trouble keeping up?

You will work in a small group of just 2 to 3 attendees. A coach will be assigned to each group, and your coach will work closely with you throughout the day to help with any problems that you may have. You will work at your own pace, assisted by your coach, so you don't need to worry about keeping up with the entire workshop.

What is the format of the workshop?

The workshop is a virtual event and you will be joining remotely.
