Django Girls Milton Keynes

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!

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!


Django Girls Milton Keynes will take place on Saturday 17 June 2017 in The National Museum of Computing on Bletchley Park, Milton Keynes. Yes, we know what you're thinking, and you're right: we have the coolest venue for this workshop!

Django Girls workshops are free of charge. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 31 May, 2017 .

Apply for the workshop!

We want women to experience what it is like to code and work with technology.

If you are a woman, know 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.

We are trans-inclusive and welcome all women from all walks of life to enjoy a day of learning. Men are welcome to attend as well. We don't want men out of the IT industry, we just want more women in it.

We take our Code of Conduct very seriously and expect everyone in the workshop to abide to it.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend a one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us: during our event, food, tea and coffee is provided

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

Applications are still open

There are 5 spaces left for this event. Hurry and sign up now!

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'm not living in Milton Keynes, can I attend?

Of course! If you are able to make it to Milton Keynes, you can attend even if you don't live in the area. We're unfortunately unable to cover your transport and accommodation expenses to get to Milton Keynes, but the workshop is free so if you can make it to the venue, go ahead and apply :)

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes, this is essential. We have no hardware, so we expect you to bring your computer and charger with you. You'll also need to have your own computer on the day to save and take home everything you’ll write and create during the workshop.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

It would be helpful to have Python and Django installed before any workshop, but we wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own. We'll make sure that one of our coaches help you out with this task.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, snacks, coffee, tea and a light lunch will be served during the workshop. If you have any food allergies please bring your own lunch just in case, as we can't be responsible for any medical mishaps on the day.

Be a Mentor!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a mentor! Fill in the form here.

We'll contact you :)
