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 20th of January 2019 in Warsaw.

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!

Workshops are free of charge and if you cannot afford coming to Warsaw, 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 12th December 2018!

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 45 people, so make sure to fill out the form very carefully!

Applications will open soon!

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!

I am not living in Poland, can I attend?

Of course! Workshops will be held in Polish, but tutorial is available in a wide variety of languages and if you speak English, we will make sure to provide you with English-speaking mentor. If you need financial aid to get to Warsaw or you need assistance with booking flights or hotel in Warsaw - let us know. If you need to bring your child with you, we might be able to organize child care, but we also need to know this beforehand. We are willing to help you!

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?

No. There will be an installation party on 19th of January during which you will install everything what is needed with help of your mentor.

Is food provided?

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