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!
The workshop will take place at ONITSHA NORTH LOCAL GOVERNMENT SECETERIAT on the 26th and 27th MAY, 2017 in onitsha.
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!
Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to Onitsha, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until 30th of APRIL!
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.
As a workshop attendee you will:
We have space only for 30 - 40 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!
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 Onitsha, 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 Onitsha - 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 Instalation 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.
