Django Girls

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 to teach 25-30 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 an open mind

The workshop will take place on the 6th, August, 2016 at the Afrihub building of Bells University Ota with an installation party on the 5th of August.

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 a fab programmer!

Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to Ota but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, 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 28th of July!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman, have interest in programming 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:

  • attend a one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided

We have space only for 30 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 Ota, can I attend?

Of course!You should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Ota or you need assistance with transport fee to Ota - 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.

Is food provided?

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