Django Girls

If you are a woman and would like 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, 20th of May at Vis Lab located in Room 347 of Lewis Science Library (Washington Road and Ivy Lane) at Princeton University in Princeton, NJ.

We believe the 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 – women programmers!

You don't need to know anything about programming - just bring a laptop (and a charger).

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. On Friday before workshop we will help you to install Django on your laptop, so you will be all ready on Saturday morning. 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?

No, we will make sure that one of our coaches will help you out with this task during Friday installation party.

Is Django Girls for women only?

Men can apply and are welcome at Django Girls events. However, women are given priority.

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our amazing sponsors breakfast, snacks and lunch will be served during the workshop.
