Would you like to learn how to build websites, but don’t know where to start? We’re hosting a free one-day workshop to teach 40 women how to build websites from scratch. This workshop is aimed at total beginners. You don't need to know anything about programming to participate. You just need to bring your own laptop and a smile :)

The main workshop will take place on the 16th of July with a pre-installation party on the 15th of July by 4:00pm in OAU.

We believe that 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 - female programmers!

    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 Ife, can I attend?

    Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - 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 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. Thanks to PythonClub, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
