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 Ukraine, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in Russian/Ukrainian. If you need financial aid to get to Kiev or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Kiev- 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?

Yes, we will provide you with the list of the helpful tools that must be installed before the workshop.
