To celebrate the International Girls in ICT Day (ICT = information and communication technologies) in April 2023, three CERN teams are joining forces to organize another edition of Django Girls Geneva: the Women in Technology community, the Visits and Events Operations team and the Microclub.
This workshop will make you discover the art of programming by creating your own blog and publishing it on the web. Maybe will you be taken by the computing fever?
There will be an installation party on the evening of Friday 21 April where you will meet your coach as well as your team, and install the softwares you will need for the Saturday workshop.
On Saturday 22 April, we will have the full-day workshop where you will create your first website, supervised by CERN engineer trainers.
Places are limited, so make sure to fill out the application form very carefully!

Je ne parle que le français, puis-je y assister ?
Bien sûr ! L'atelier se déroulera en anglais et en français avec l'aide de nos excellents coaches.
What computer equipment do I need to participate?
