Perth{Web}Girls

If you are a female and you 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 Saturday the 7th of March in Perth.

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!

This is a combined Django Girls and Rails Girls event - we're joining forces to make the event doubly awesome. Whether you want to learn Python and Django, or Ruby and Rails, or don't mind which, this is your chance to learn.

Apply for a pass!

If you are a woman and have a laptop - you can apply for a pass! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend one-day Django or Rails workshops during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us - during workshops food is provided

We have space only for 100 people across the two workshops, so make sure to fill the form very carefully!

Applications are now open!

Application process closes on the 19th of Feb and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by the 25th of Feb.

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?

We will be having an "installathon" before the workshop, to make sure everything is set up for the day.

Be a Mentor!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a mentor! Fill in the form here, but select the option to be a mentor.

We will contact you :)
