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 November 13th, 2021, 9.00—16.30 atHet Kasteel
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 if you cannot afford coming to Groningen but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation.
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 40 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!
We are following the government's corona measures. November 13 is still some time away, so we don't yet know exactly what rules will apply. Please note that you may need to show a vaccination certificate or test certificate QR code.
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!
I am not living in Groningen, can I attend?
Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should 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 Python and Django installed before workshops, but we don'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.
Am I too young/old to apply?
No! We have no upper or lower age limit for the workshop. We feel that women of any age can be highly motivated to learn and succeed in this field.
Is food provided?
Yes, snacks and lunch will be served during the workshop.
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 it touch
