If you are a woman 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 Saturday, December 5 at UC Riverside.

We believe that 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 - female programmers!

Workshops are free of charge, and if you are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we would love to have you join us.

Apply for a pass!

If you are a woman, you know English and have a laptop - you can apply for a pass! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • create your first dynamic website
  • be mentored by programmers who want to help you get into web development
  • be fed by us (light breakfast and healthy lunch provided)

We have space only for 40 people, so make sure to fill the form very carefully!

Follow us at @DjangoGirlsIE for updates.

Applications are still open!

Register ASAP!

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 do not live in the Inland Empire. Can I attend?

Of course! The workshop 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 take home everything that you 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 sponsors, a light breakfast of bagels and healthy lunch will be served.

Is the venue accessible?

Yes, the conference is on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the student union building (HUB) but there are two elevators going to all 3 levels of the building and the entire building was completed recently within ADA standards.

Will there be a quiet room?

Yes, we will have a quiet room for people to take breaks, since it is a quiet room we will not be able to have coaches in there to help answer question.

Why are you doing this?

We want to give women a safe space to learn, ask questions, make new friends, and feel supported as they learn something new.

Meet the organizers!
