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 Los Angeles, can I attend?

Of course! If you need financial aid to get to the venue in Los Angeles, let us know. We'll do our best to provide any assistance we can.

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes. We have no hardware, so we expect you to bring your computer with you.

We're looking for a sponsor that will help us provide laptops for future events.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

We'll help you download and install everything you need to get started. But if you're eager to start, you can read the Django Girls tutorial on installation and code editors.

Why are you doing this?

Programming is a fun and creative activity, and opens up professional opportunities. We want to make sure everyone interested in technology has a chance to participate!

Is food provided?

Yes! We'll provide breakfast and lunch. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions, so we can plan accordingly.

Be a Mentor!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a mentor! Contact us if you're interested ❤️
