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 event for beginners!

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!

Apply for a pass!

If you are a woman and you have a laptop - you can apply for a pass! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - The workshop is for people who are new to programming. As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • Get a chance to meet other ladies in the tech world
  • Interact with the organizers and some of the sponsors
  • be fed by us - during workshop, food is provided

Important

We have space only for a limited number of people, so make sure to fill the form very carefully! We usually get some time off to read every application. It takes hours and hours to read and score all the applications and we’re doing all this in our free time, so please be considerate: don’t apply if you’re not 100% committed to this opportunity. You need to be sure you can come to attend the workshop on 16th Septembeber 2017, otherwise your slot would go to waste.

Applications to attend or Coach on Our Next Django Girls Mbale Event

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 Mbale, can I attend?

Of course! Every woman is welcome to apply to the workshop! Unfortunately we cannot guarantee financial assistance to help with your transport and accommodation. However, don't hesitate to let us know your situation and we'll do our best to help! :)!

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.Snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
