Django Girls Minna

Are you a girl who would like to learn how to build websites, but don’t know where or how to start?
Start here, at Django girls Minna.

We are hosting a free one-day workshop to teach 60 girls how to build websites from scratch. This workshop is aimed at total beginners. You don't need to know anything about programming to participate. you just need to bring your own laptop and some curiosity :)

The workshop will take place on 10th February, 2018 with a pre-installation party on the 9th of February in MINNA.

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 the growing population of Nigerian Female programmers!

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 Minna, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Minna or you need assistance with accomodation in Minna - 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.

Why is it important to attend the Pre-install Party?

You'll have a chance not only to get all the required software ready for the workshop but also meet your coach and your group members. It will make you feel relaxed and prepared for your adventure with programming!

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
