Django Girls

If you are a female and you want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you! We are holding a one-day workshop for beginners! And you don't need to know anything about programming! We only expect you have your own laptop and know English good enough to read our English tutorial! Workshop will be held in Polish and you will work on your own pace in a small group of three attendees and one coach.

It will take place on 6th of December in Łódź.

We believe that IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. We want to give you an opportunity to learn how to program and become one of us - female programmers!

Workshops are free of charge! Don’t wait too long - you can apply for a pass only until 9th of November!

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! Django Girls workshops are meant 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 can still apply!

I am not living in Poland, can I attend?

Of course! If you have no troubles with understanding Polish or English - you should 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 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 food provided?

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

Do I need to speak English very well?

If you are a Pole - no, we will have Polish coaches. Unfortunately, we cannot ensure it for other nationalities. However, you need to know English good enough to understand English text.
