Django Girls

No, it’s not a typo.

Django Girls is organizing a one-day programming workshop for women in Lagos. The workshop is for women who would like to learn how to build websites but don’t know where or how to start.

It is aimed at total beginners (the people Nigerians love to call “learners”) and will accommodate only 30 women, teaching them how to build websites from scratch. That means your application has to be stellar if you want to get in. And it’s free.

Django Girls is a non-profit organization that helps women organize free one-day programming workshops, providing the tools resources and support that they need. The organization was born in Berlin in July 2014 and now has hundreds of people contributing to it. This Lagos event is organized by Aisha Bello.

The workshop will take place on February 20, 2016 but will be preceded by a pre-installation party on February 19. The organizers are also willing to help interested ladies who can’t afford to come to Lagos with accommodation and transportation. It’s also worthy of note that there are no age restrictions. No one is too old or too young to attend.

All you need is a laptop and the ability to speak English. Really. According to their website, “You don’t need to know any technical stuff – workshops are for people who are new to programming.” Then there’s free breakfast and lunch.

Visit the website to apply if you’re interested. The deadline is January 24.
