Django Girls

Have you ever felt like the world of technology is changing too fast and you can't keep up? Yeah, we've all been there. That's why we've decided to change that and give you a chance to learn about technology, programming and building websites.

Django Girls Warsaw is a workshop on how to build your first web application using HTML, CSS, Python and Django. And it's for beginners!

Join us on December 5-6th, 2015 in the heart of Warsaw!

You don't need to know anything about programming: we only expect you to have your own laptop with wifi and admin privileges. Workshop will be held in Polish and you will work on your own pace in a small group of four: 3 attendees and 1 coach.

Our workshop is free-of-charge and is available for anyone, no matter the age, race or sexuality. We're commited to provide a welcoming and friendly experience for everyone.

FAQ

Do I need to know anything about websites or programming?

No! Our workshop is 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 wifi) with you. It's also important for us that you take home everything you’ll write and create during the workshop.

Do I need to have something installed on my laptop?

We will install everything together during the installation party on Saturday, before the workshop. Please remember that since it may be necessary to install software on you computer you need to have the admin rights on it. In case you have any questions regarding this issue - drop us a line. We're happy to help!

Why is it crucial to attend the installation party the day before workshop?

It's super important to us that you have a chance to participate in the workshop to the max, learn as much as possible and don't stress about unnecessary problems. In order to avoid them we would want you to join us during the installation 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 while drinking some nice cider or lemonade and having some snacks! It will make you feel relaxed and prepared for your first adventure with programming! Trust us!

I don't live in Poland / I don't speak Polish, can I still attend?

Of course! It's possible for us to organize English-speaking groups - so if you have no troubles with understanding and speaking English - you are welcome to apply!

Is food provided?

Yes. Thanks to our amazing sponsors - snacks and lunch will be served during the workshop. Yaaayyy! ♥

Why are you doing this?

Because we're female programmers ourselves in the industry dominated by men, so we want to see more women getting involved into technology! We want to inspire women to fall in love with programming! ♥
