Django Girls

If you are a woman and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a free one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on Saturday 26th November 2016 in Umeå.

Django Girls Umeå is a crash course that is aimed at complete beginners. You don't need to know anything about programming, we just expect you to bring your own laptop and to have a sufficient understanding of English so you’re able to follow our English tutorial.

You will work through the tutorial in a small group of three attendees and one coach so you'll be able to do it at your own pace. Most of our coaches speak both Swedish and English.

Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 31st October 2016!

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 Umeå, can I attend?

Of course! If you can get yourself to Umeå, 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 our amazing sponsors, breakfast, snacks and lunch will be served during the workshops.


Django Girls Umeå workshop will be hosted by Codemill on Södra Ersmarksgatan 7 in Umeå.


We couldn't be here without the support from amazing people and organizations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality. If you want to contribute and support our goal, please get it touch
