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!

It will take place on 1st of November in Lviv, Ukraine, on the first day of a big IT conference: PyCon Ukraine, which gathers a lot of talented programmers from Ukraine and East Europe.

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 15th of October!

Apply for a pass!

If you are a woman, you know English and have a laptop - you can apply for a pass! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend one-day Django workshops during which you will create your first website
  • get a free entrance to PyCon Ukraine's second day, where you can meet people from the industry and learn more about programming
  • be fed by us - during workshops and PyCon Ukraine food is provided

We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to fill the form very carefully!

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 English and Ukrainian, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English or Ukrainian - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Lviv or you need assistance with trip or hotel in Lviv - let us know. We will try 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?

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 PyCon Ukraine conference good for a total beginner?

As a workshop attendee you will get a free ticket to PyCon Ukraine's second day -conference for Python programmers. Even though you are new to programming, conference is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to PyCon Ukraine, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
