Django Girls brought to you by HackathonGirls, Banjul

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 8th, July, 2017 at Khamsys, Behind Elton Gas Station, Bijilo, The Gambia.

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.

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman, know 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.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend a one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided

We have space only for 25 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now closed!

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!

I am not living in Gambia, 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 to get to Gambia or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Gambia - let us know. We are willing to help you!

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes you will be doing some installations and its best doing it on your own laptop, 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 food provided?

Yes. Yes! We believe people learn better when their stomachs are not rumbling and we really do want you to learn! Our fantastic sponsors have helped ensure that we can provide you with food and drinks.

Be a Coach!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a coach! Fill the form if you're interested ❤️
