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 Kochi, can I attend?

Of course! Try to reach out to us early so we can find you accomodation.

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 the workshop good for a total beginner?

Even though you are new to programming,a workshop is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration. Who knows,maybe you will be the next Zuckerberg ;)

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to the FIREFOX CLUB of FISAT, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.

Be a Mentor!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a mentor! Fill in the form here, but select the option to be a mentor.

We will contact you :)
