Django Girls Wrocław is an one-day free workshop about building internet websites for total beginners. It'll take place in the heart of Wrocław on Saturday, 10th January 2015.

You don't need to know anything about programming: we only expect you have your own laptop and know English good enough to read our English tutorial. Workshop will be held in Polish and you will work on your own pace in a small group of 3 attendees and 1 coach.

Workshops are free of charge and available for anyone, no matter the age, race or sexuality. We're commited to provide a welcoming and friendly experience for everyone. In order to join workshop, you need to apply until 15th December.

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! If you have no troubles with understanding Polish or English - you should 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?

We will install everything together on the installation party on Friday, before the workshop :)

Is food provided?

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

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!

Venue

Django Girls Wrocław workshop will take place near the Old Town Market and will be hosted by SMT Software on Kościuszki 29 in Wrocław.

SMT Software is an innovative, high-performance software house with the most talented and passionate people on board. They take care to maintain the best forms of cooperation. They support openness and kindness between their employees.
It's that attitude that made us believe this it the right place for such special event :)

Coaches

During the workshops you'll work in small groups of 3 women. Each group will be tutored by one coach -- experienced members of Django community who will volunteer their time, knowledge and energy for Django Girls.

Sponsors
