If you are a woman and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a two-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on 23-24 March 2018 at Thinkific in Vancouver.

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 – a female programmer!

Workshops are free of charge! Just need to bring your motivation and your dreams! Don't wait too long: you can apply for the workshop only until March 10th!

We have space only for 30 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully! Filling the form doesn't confirm your participation, an e-mail will be sent on March 12th for the ones who will be selected

Apply now!

If you are a woman and know English, 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 two-day Django workshop during which you will create your first website
  • be empowered to start in the tech area!
  • be fed by us: during our event, food is provided
  • Applications are closed!

    Application process closes on March 10th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by March 12th!
