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 remotely on 4th February, 2023 in Lome.

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 you can participate from the comfort of your home with your computer. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 20th January, 2023!

Apply for the workshop!

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 participant you will:

  • participate on a one-day Django workshop virtually during which you will create your first website

We have space only for 40 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

Application process closes on January 20th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by January 27th (or sooner)!

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 Lome, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English and would be done remotely, so if you have your laptop and no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply.

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.

Be a Mentor!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a mentor! Contact us if you're interested ❤️
