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., know what HTML or CSS are), you can still apply!

I am not living in Cagayan de Oro; can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English or in Cebuano, so if you have no trouble speaking and understanding English or Cebuano - 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 Django installed before workshops, but we wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own. However, we will ensure that one of our coaches will help you with this task.

Is Django Girls Cagayan de Oro Workshop good for a total beginner?

Even though you are new to programming, the conference is an excellent place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

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

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