Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?
No! The workshop is 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 only speak French/English, can I attend?
Of course! The workshop will take place in English and French with the help of our awesome coachs.
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 take home everything you’ll write and create during the workshop.
Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?
It would be helpful to have Django installed before, but we don't expect you to install anything on your own.We will make sure that one of our coaches help you out with this task.
Is food provided?
Yes. Snacks and lunch will be served during the workshop. And optionally, you can join us on saturday for an evening networking dinner at a nearby restaurant at your own cost though.
We couldn't be here without the support of amazing people and organizations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality. We thank them very much for their support!
We would like to thank the CERN and Rosie Girls for the organization!
