During the conference some coaches and organizers will be present. If you're still in Bilbao and you want to keep working on your website, improve the tutorial, or learn more about anything Django or Python related, this is a great opportunity to do so in a relaxed atmosphere.
**the tickets to Euro Python are not included in Django Girls event. You need to buy, If you join the Django Girls can buy as a student, tell us by email.
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!
Will the workshop be held in English or in Spanish?
Both! We're very fortunate to have the tutorial in English and in Spanish, and we're making great efforts to gather Spanish-speaking coaches.
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 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.
Is EuroPython a good conference for a total beginner?
Even though you are new to programming, a conference is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration. We will make sure to highlight any beginner-friendly talks so you'll have a better idea of where to go. Most talks will be held in English, some in Spanish.
** Remember, you need to buy the ticket if you want to go to Euro Python. If you join the Django Girls can buy as a student, tell us by email.
Do I need to pay for tickets, travel, food, or accommodation?
