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 on 14th and 15th September, 2018 at Presbyterian University College in Kwahu.
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 Kwahu 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, fluent in 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.

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

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 Kwahu, can I attend?
Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English, you should apply. If you need aid getting to the Presbyterian University College, let us know. We are willing to help you!

Yes. (An extension cord/multi socket is also advisable). 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 wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own. We will make sure that your coache (who will be assigned to you later) will help you out with this task.
