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 Nottingham, can I attend?

Of course! We are part of Europython, so you can attend from anywhere in the world! If you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. We will try our best to find a coach that can assist you. We are willing to help you!

Should I use my own laptop?

Yes. We have no hardware, so we expect you to have 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 discord and zoom installed before workshops, we will send you an email with installation details. Installation of python and django can take place durin, the workshop. We will make sure that one of our coaches will help you out with this task.
