Django 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 16th of May in Prague,

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!

Workshops are free of charge and if you can’t afford coming to Prague, but you are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don’t wait too long - you can apply for a pass only until 26th of April!

Apply for a pass!

If you are a woman, you know elementary English 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 workshops during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us - during workshop food is provided
  • be introduced to other workshop opportunities and community of people willing to help you with next steps

We have space only for 40 people, so make sure to fill the form very carefully!

Application are now closed :-(

Application process was closed on April 26th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by May 9th.

If you couldn't make it or you were not selected, don't be sad. Check out Django Girls events in other cities! There are many of them in Central Europe!

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!

Will the workshop be held in English or in Czech?

Workshop will be in Czech and English, don't worry if your English isn't perfect, we're not native speakers either!

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, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
