If you want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a two-day workshop for beginners!
It will take place in April 12th - 13th at The Source in Grand Rapids, MI.
We believe the IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. We are trans-inclusive and encourage applications from all women and non-binary people. We want to give you an opportunity to learn how to program and possibly start on your way to become a programmer!
Workshops are free of charge thanks to our sponsors. Applications are open until March 29th.
Anyone can apply for our event! You'll only need to bring your laptop. If you don't have one but are very motivated and intersted in participating, we encourage you to apply anyway and we will try to accommodate you. You don't need to know any technical stuff – our workshop is for people who are new to programming.
Friday April 12th: 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Saturday April 13th: 9:00am - 5:00pm
We have space for only 40 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!
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 Grand Rapids, can I attend?
Of course! If you're confident you can come, go ahead and apply!
Should I bring my own laptop?
Yes. We have no hardware, so we expect you to bring your computer with you. If you don't have one, please email us and we will try to make arrangements. We feel it's also important that you will take home everything you’ll write and create during workshops, which is much easier to do if you have your own laptop.
Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?
It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but we don't expect you to install anything on your own. We will make sure that one of our coaches will help you with this task.
Can I apply if I'm not a woman?
Everyone can apply and is welcome at Django Girls events. However, women, LGBTQ, POC and other under-represented groups will be considered first. Please refer to this post for more information on our policies.
Is food provided?
Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
