If you are a woman or man and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on 22nd, December, 2019 at in Palitana.

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 Palitana 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 1st December, 2019.!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman, know intermediate English and have an intrest in computer science, 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 100 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 Palitana, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with understanding English - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Palitana or you need assistance with booking transport or hotel in Palitana - let us know. We are willing to help you!

Should I bring my own laptop?

Yes. Even if you don't have a laptop NO WORRIES: We're also providing hardware. 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 Palitana good for a total beginner?

As a workshop attendee you will get a brief introduction to web-development using Django. We strongly recommend to attend our event to beginner.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to Django Girls Organization, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
