Django Girls Jinja (Girls Coding)

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

It will take place on 14th December 2018 at Children of Grace Plot 1A Kiira Road in Jinja, Uganda.

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!

Workshop is free of charge.

The workshop!

If you are a woman, know English and have a laptop, you can apply for our event! You don't need to know any technical stuff – our workshop is for people who are new to programming.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • Attend a one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided

We have space only for 50 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 Uganda, 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 Jinja or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Jinja - 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.

Is Django Girls Jinja Workshop good for a total beginner?

As a workshop attendee you will get a free pass to Django Girls Jinja - Workshop for Python programmers. Even though you are new to programming, Workshop is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
