Event description

Description

DjangoGirls curate amazing first experiences with technology and help people fall in love with programming. Melb Django Girls coding workshop is your opportunity to learn how to code in a safe & supportive environment.

Applications open via our website until June 7th, start yours today!


## The Workshop

Applications are now open for Melb DjangoGirls, a female-focused beginners coding workshop for adults in Django/Python!! The workshop has a section for beginners, where you learn from scratch, as well as a section for our returning djangogirls to learn additional tutorials!

Each participant will work alongside their peers, supported by numerous mentors, to complete Django based tutorials from open source DjangoGirls materials*. All you need to bring is a laptop and a learning mindset!

The format of the tutorials is a self-guided coding workshop, including instructions, with the available help of mentors who work in the Melbourne tech space.

On the day of the workshop, event registrations will begin at 10:00 am and we will conclude with an afternoon tea & wrap-up at 3:00 pm. Lunch and sweets will be provided.
