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 40 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 23rd July, 2016 with a preinstall party on 22nd July, 2016 at 3A Oromineke Street, Dline in Port Harcourt.

We believe the IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. We want to give you an opportunity to see how fabulous it is to be a – Female Programmer!

Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to PORT HARCOURT 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 30TH JUNE, 2016!

    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 we 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 food provided?

    Yes. Thanks to our amazing sponsors, snacks, lunch and cupcakes will be served during workshops.

    Why is it important to attend the Pre-install Party?

    You'll have a chance not only to get all the required software ready for the workshop but also meet your coach and your group members.It will make you feel relaxed and prepared for your adventure with programming!

    I am not living in Port Harcourt, can I attend?

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