Join us on 20th May 2022 for a free one-day virtual workshop where you can learn how to program in Python and build your own website with Django! 💻

'Django Girls' is an amazing global initiative which aims to kickstart and support women in tech. We will provide you with experienced coaches during the day whom you can ask any questions and who will help you if you get stuck at any point.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

The workshop is aimed at complete beginners and no previous knowledge about programming or building websites is required to participate. If you do have some basic previous knowledge (for example, you have done some HTML or CSS in the past), we still encourage you to apply because we are sure you will still have a great time learning about other things such as Python and Django.

Do I need my own laptop?

Yes, you will need your own laptop. The workshop will be 100% online so you'll need a laptop to follow along.

Do I need to pre-install anything on my laptop?

In order to follow the workshop you will need to have a code editor, Git, Python and Django installed on your computer. For a better experience during the workshop, we encourage you to have everything installed in advance. However, you will also have the opportunity to install everything needed in the morning. Feel free to check out the installation manual on the DjangoGirls tutorial website for more info.

Is there any restriction on who can apply to participate in the workshop?

Everybody is welcome to apply. We are trans-inclusive and encourage applications from all women and non-binary people. However, applications from people belonging to minorities and underrepresented groups in technology will have priority.

I can't attend this workshop, will there be more in the future?

Yes, check out the DjangoGirls events page for upcoming workshops all around the world. If you don't want to miss upcoming events in London specifically, please follow DjangoGirls London on Twitter (@djangogirlsldn).
