Build your own web application. Workshop for women, where you will learn to code in Python.
If you are a female and you want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you! We are holding a one-day workshop for beginners! The workshop will take place on Sunday, 13th of March in Bratislava, during the inaugural PyCon Slovakia.
We believe that 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 - female programmers. Workshop is free of charge and if you can’t afford come, but you are very motivated to learn and then share your knowledge with others, we have some funds to help you out with your travel costs and accommodation. If you would like to attend the conference on Friday or/and Saturday it is necessary to buy a ticket.
Apply for a pass
If you are a woman, you know Slovak or English and have a laptop - you can apply for a pass! You don’t need to know any technical stuff - workshops are for people who are new to programming.
Application process closes on February 14th and you'll be informed about acceptance or rejection by March 1st (or sooner).
Frequently asked questions
- 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!
- 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?
It would be helpful to have Django installed before workshops, but wouldn't expect you to install anything on your own. We will make sure that one of our coaches will help you out with this task.
- Is food provided?
Yes. Thanks to PyCon SK and sponsors, snacks, coffee and lunch will be served during the workshop.
