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 one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on 30, September, 2017 at KK HUB in Ho.

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 and if you cannot afford coming to Ho but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 30th 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 Ho, can I attend?

Yes, you can! We welcome people from all over. Do go ahead to register if you are really interested, then send us an e-mail at [email protected] explaining your circumstances and we will see what we can do.

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 Django Girls Ho good for a total beginner?

Absolutely! The workshop is designed for beginners who are interested in technology and want to learn how to code.

Is food provided?

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 Mentor!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a mentor!
