Django Girls is a free one-day workshop for beginners, where you can learn to build a website using Django and Python.
It will take place in Oxford on the 6th May!
The IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology, although the workshop is open to all.
If you're interested, and have a laptop, please let us know. You won’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.
As a workshop attendee you will:
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.
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.
I am not living in Oxford, can I attend?
Is food provided?
Yes. Snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
Can I help out?
We would love to hear form you if you are interested in helping coach on the day. Please email us.
We couldn't be here without the support from amazing people and organizations who donated money, knowledge and time to help us make this a reality.
