Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! This workshop is 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!

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 we wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own. We will have an installation party the evening before the workshop.

Is food provided?

Yes. Snacks and lunch will be served during workshop.
