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!

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. If you are unable to secure a laptop, please email us at [email protected] and we'll see what we can do.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

Nope, we'll help you install everything you need! Don't worry, all the software you'll use is free.

I don't live in Mission! Can I still attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply.

Is food provided?

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