We are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on 4th of August in Brisbane, Australia, as part of the large technical conference PyCon AU which brings together professionals, enthusiasts, hobbiests and students who have an interest in or passion for the programming language Python.

Unlike most technical conferences, PyCons around the world are known to be colourful, fun and have a strong social and community aspect. Having a community and volunteer-run workshop like DjangoGirls is very much in the spirit of the conference!

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 don'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.

Do I have to come to the conference?

No! The workshop is free to anyone eligible to attend. The workshop is part of the conference, though so you will have the learn from some of the most incredible programming talent in Australia and even the world.
