Thank you for your interest. See you next year :)


Why are you doing this ?

Our main goal is to reduce gender inequality in IT industry. We believe that by providing supportive environment to women beginners to learn programming, it would encourage women to consider programming in career someday !

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!

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.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our Sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.

What is 4 weeks workshop?

4 weeks workshop is once a week Python workshop in October every Tuesday evening, aims to provide basic knowledge and skills on programming. This would help tremendously for building your website on the Django Girls event. It is so much better to understand what you code rather than copy & paste ;)

Is it all free?

Absolutely ! Coaches and Organisers are volunteering to contribute their skills and time to the society. Sharing is caring :)
