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 3rd of August in Brisbane, on the first sprints day of a big Python conference: PyCon Australia, which gathers a lot of talented programmers from all over the country.

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 - women programmers!

The workshop is free of charge. Don’t wait too long - you can apply for a pass only until the 1st of August!

Apply for a pass!

If you are a woman, you know 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
  • eat cupcakes!
  • Have a bunch of fun!

We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to fill the form very carefully!

Applications now open!

The application process will close on the 1st of August -- so if you heard about us from DjangoCon Australia, you can still apply!

Apply!

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’llwrite 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 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 sponsors, snacks will be served during the workshop.

Be a Mentor!

We would be delighted if you would like to join us as a mentor! If you are interested, please email [email protected] and we will contact you :)
