Django Girls Lahore

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 May 28, 2016 at Main Tower Lab, ITU, Arfa Software Technology Park in Lahore.

We believe the IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology as this will improve gender disparity in programming. 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 if you cannot afford coming to Lahore but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Let us know and we can see what we can arrange for you. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until May 20, 2016!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman, know 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: 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!! Go Girls!

Become a part of first Django Grils event in Pakistan!

Application process closes on May 20th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by May 25th (or sooner)!

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! 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!

I am not living in Lahore, can I attend?

Of course! Workshop will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Lahore or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Lahore - let us know. We will see how we can 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?

It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshop, 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 Django Girls Lahore good for a total beginner?

Even though you are new to programming, workshop is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration to become python/django programmer like us!

Is food provided?

Yes. Snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
