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 November 1-2 at VMLY&R in Kansas City.

Kansas City Women in Technology's ongoing mission is to grow the number of women in technology careers in Kansas City. KCWiT is excited to introduce women to coding and technology through this Django Girls workshop. 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 some meals will be provided.

Register

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!

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes. We do not have hardware, so it is necessary that you bring your own computer. Furthermore, it is important that you are able to take home everything you write and create during workshops. If you are unable to secure a laptop, please email us at [email protected] and we'll see what we can do.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but we wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own. Join us for the install & pizza party Friday night to get your laptop ready for the workshop!

I don't live in Kansas City, can I attend?

Of course! Groups of women from Omaha and Oklahoma City have joined us in prior years.

Is food provided?

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