DJANGO GIRLS WARRI

Would you like to learn how to build websites, but don’t know where to start? would you like to learn how to program in python or just come to understand what it is that's going with all that typing and intimidating-looking black screens? if you are, you are invited to a free one-day workshop for beginners!

It will take place on July 15, 2017 at Warri.

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!Programming is actually really fun: it's creative, productive and it's like being able to do magic! So we are trying to bust down that barrier and introduce more people who are generally currently under represented in tech to some of the tools,people and environments that tech people are part of. Come and be introduced to programming in a happy, female friendly environment with some amazing people!

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 beginners who are totally new to programming .

You can still apply if you are not female, but the workshop is intended for women and will prioritise female attendees first.

As a workshop attendee you will:

    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 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.

    Why is it important to attend the Pre-install Party?

    You'll have a chance not only to get all the required software ready for the workshop but also meet your coach and your group members.It will make you feel relaxed and prepared for your adventure with programming!

    I am not living in Warri, can I attend?

    Of course! Workshops will be in English, so if you have no troubles with speaking and understanding English - you should apply. If you need financial aid to get to Warri or you need assistance with accomodation in Warri - let us know. We are willing to help you!

    Is food provided?

    Yes. Thanks to our amazing sponsors, snacks, lunch and cupcakes will be served during workshops.
