Django Girls workshop
DjangoGirls - a hugely-successful day-long workshop aimed at introducing women to programming in Python and Django - comes to Wales.
Note: this session is part of DjangoCon Europe’s open day. Django Girls Cardiff is free and all are welcome to attend.
Through Django Girls, hundreds of women have enjoyed a first-class introduction to software development in Python and Django; many have gone on from that start to launch their own projects and embark on careers in the industry.
Since the first workshop in July 2014 at EuroPython, Django Girls sessions have been held on every continent across the globe.
If you attend the Django Girls workshop, you’ll have an option to attend the full conference at a huge discount.
We have allocated a number of specially-priced conference tickets, at £100, to Django Girls attendees. These are full conference tickets (which also include meals, refreshments and so on for all six days of the event). The standard price of these tickets is £275.
Having been through the workshop, you will be in an excellent position to enjoy the rest of the event, and will get a great deal out of it - even if you arrived as a complete beginner.
How to apply
There are 50 places available at the workshop, and it will be oversubscribed.
The application process for places and for financial assistance to attend will open on 1st February, and close on 17th April. Applicants will receive a response by 24th April.
If you already know that you want to attend both DjangoCon and the Django Girls workshop, please buy your DjangoCon ticket now .
You will still be able to apply for the workshop and financial assistance separately later. If you successfully apply for a specially-priced DjangoCon ticket after having purchased one at the normal price, you will receive a refund for the difference.
Can you help?
As you can imagine, a Django Girls workshop takes some organising. As well as the technical planning, some work needs to be done to prepare the venue, organise catering and so on.
So far, all of the Django Girls organising team are coming to Cardiff from out of town; in fact some of them are coming from abroad.
The lead organisers of Django Girls Cardiff are Anna Warzecha and Justyna Kałużka. If you can help - whether by being involved in the organisation (especially if you have some local knowledge) or by being a helper at the event itself, they’d love to hear from you - please drop them a line by email. You don’t need to have any particular skills, and you’ll have fun being part of something really special.
