Django Girls Workshop

  • Thought Machine Albert House, 256-260 Singer St, Old Street, London EC1V 9DD United Kingdom (map)

The presence of technology is growing part of everyday life. We need IT skills for more and more tasks in the workplace, as well in our homes. We cannot imagine a business without a company website or social media presence, or spending a day without access to online shopping and the knowledge of the internet at our fingers. Being tech-savvy is a must-have skill in any job. 🚀

'Django Girls' is an amazing global initiative, empowering women 💪🏽 across the world and helping them to discover the exciting world of IT. And Django Girls initiative is returning to London! This spring, on the 11th of May, we are holding a free workshop in central London, in the office of the fintech startup 'Thought Machine'. This is an empowering and super fun event for women who want to discover the IT world. There will be plenty of experienced volunteers from the company who will guide you through the standard Django Girls online tutorial and help you build your very own blog 💻. This workshop is aimed for total beginners!

All you need to complete the workshop is your own laptop and a willingness to learn! To make the main workshop run smoothly, there is an optional setup session on Friday 10th of May from 6-8pm, where we will help you to set up your computer, and make sure you have all the right things installed. The main workshop takes place on Saturday 11th of May from 9am - 5pm. As you work through the online tutorial at your own pace, we will have plenty of experienced mentors on hand, to guide you towards a working blog. We promise you will finish the day with a first-step towards understanding websites and a new-found passion for coding!
