Django Girls Florence is a free workshop that teaches the ABCs of web development and is targeted to women who love technology. The lab aims at involving anyone interested in learning the basics of programming, operating no age or cultural background distinction.
To participate in the event no particular requirement is needed: the only requirements are understanding Italian and having a laptop. During the workshop participants will be introduced to Django and Python technologies, and also to the tools used by developers (Github, command line etc.). With the help of our coaches, who will follow the girls through every step, participants will be guided in the creation of a blog in a Django environment.
You can register for the April 2nd workshop by clicking on the link Django Girls Florence.
Registration opens on January and closes on March 12. After completing your registration, you will receive the confirmation of your participation.
For all Django Girls, Sunday 2 of April the entrance is completely free. If instead you'd like to participate in DjangoCon Europe from Monday 3 to Friday 7 of April, you have the right to a discounted ticket. If you'd like to obtain the ticket, contact DjangoCon Europe via mail at email@example.com.
Being it a short-term event (the workshop is concentrated in 8 hours) the objective is to provide the basic knowledge necessary for the girls to move with greater confidence in the programming world.
After the success obtained from a first event in Florence, which took place on April 17 2016, it was decided to realize a second workshop, this time in the major contest of DjangoCon Europe.
