Friday 22nd July - Install party
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!
