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 4, March, 2017 at JoziHub in 44 Stanley Ave, Milpark, Johannesburg.

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!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman, are comfortable with 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: yes, we said it - during our event, food is provided!

We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

Application process closes on 27th January 2017 and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by 13th February 2017 (or sooner)!

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 don't live in Johannesburg, can I attend?

Of course! If you are able to make your own way to Johannesburg, you should most certainly 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 will take home everything you’ll write and create during the workshop.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before the workshop, but its not a pre-requisite, and we don'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 good for a total beginner?

Most definitely! Although you are new to programming, this workshop is a good place to meet other awesome women, find inspiration and chat to interesting women currently working in different aspects of technology - not just in coding!

Is food provided?

Yes, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
