Django Girls Osogbo

Would you like to learn how to build websites, but don’t know where to start? We’re hosting a free one-day workshop to teach 60 women 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 a smile :)

The main workshop will take place on the 25th of march with a pre-installation party on the 24th of march by 3:00pm at FOUNTAIN UNIVERSITY OSOGBO.

We believe that 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 - female programmers!

Please endeavour to dress decent and corporate!

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 Osogbo, can I attend?

of course yes! We welcome people from all over nigeria. Note however that we are unable to provide transport or accommodation support. If you will not be able to attend without support, you might be unable to participate in the workshop. Who knows Django Girls might be coming to your location next!! Do go ahead to register if you are really interested, then send us a mail at [email protected] explaining your circumstances and we will see what we can do. Please be aware that this is not a guarantee of support!

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.

Is Django girls workshop good for a total beginner?

Even though you are new to programming,the workshop is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

Yes. We belive you can learn better when the stomach is filled.
