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 4th of June 2016 at INSA de Lyon.
We believe the 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 – women programmers!
Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to Lyon but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may try to find some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 7th of May 2016!
If you are a woman, know French or 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:
We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to fill out 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 France, can I attend?
Of course! Workshops will be in both English and French, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Lyon or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Lyon - let us know. We are willing 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 food provided?
Yes. Thanks to Django Grils, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
Am I too young/old to apply?
No! We have no upper or lower age limit for the workshop. We feel that women of any age can be highly motivated to learn and succeed in this field.
During the workshops you'll work in small groups of 3 persons. Each group will be tutored by one coach — experienced member of Python and Django community who will volunteer their time, knowledge and energy for Django Girls.
We couldn't be here without the support from amazing people and organizations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality. If you want to contribute and support our goal, please get it touch
