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 Port Harcourt, can I attend?

Of course! Registration is open to all, however if you live outside Port Harcourt, you should be able to cater for your transportation and accomodation costs as we might not be able to do so.

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 Django Port Harcourt good for a total beginner?

Even though you are new to programming,the event is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

Is food provided?

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