Django Girls Oyo

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 50 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 :)

It will take place on 25TH OF May,2018 at Federal Government girls College (F.G.G.C) Oyo in oyo Town.

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 Oyo 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 May 15th,2018!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman, understand 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:

  • 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 50 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

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 Oyo, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply.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 on the installation day.

Is Django Girls Oyo 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. Thanks to our Amazing sponsors, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
