Django Girls

If you are a woman and 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 24TH JUNE 2017 at ABIA STATE UNIVERSITY in UTURU.

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!

We are trans-inclusive and welcome all women from all walks of life to enjoy our oneday workshop. Men are welcome to attend as well. We don't want men out of the IT industry, we just want more women in it.

Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to CITY but are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we may have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until JUNE 20TH 2017!

Apply for the workshop!

If you are a woman, know English and have a laptop, you can apply for our event! You don't need to know any technical stuff – our workshop is for people who are new to programming.

As a workshop attendee you will:

  • attend a one-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided

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

    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 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 DjangoGirls Uturu good for a total beginner?

    Even though you are new to programming,this is a good place to meet many interesting people in the industry and find inspiration.

    Is food provided?

    Yes, snacks and lunch will be served during workshops.
