If you are a female and you 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 the 23rd of August in Harare, Zimbabwe, as part of the large technical conference PyConZim which brings together professionals, enthusiasts, hobbiests and students who have an interest in or passion for the programming language Python.

Unlike most technical conferences, PyCons around the world are known to be colourful, fun and have a strong social and community aspect. Having a community and volunteer-run workshop like DjangoGirls is very much in the spirit of the conference! Don’t wait too long - you can apply for a pass only until 23rd of July 2017!

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 Hararey, 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 financial aid to get to Harare - let us know. We are willing to help you!

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.

Even though you are new to programming, a workshop is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to Pyzim! snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
