If you are a woman and want to learn how to make websites, we have good news for you: we are holding a one-day workshop for beginners!

When: August 4 from 5:30-7:30pm & August 5 from 9am-5pm
Where: Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center in Melbourne, Australia
Bring: Laptop, charger, & learning mindset
Cost: Free! Need assistance in getting to Melbourne from regional Victoria? Email us!

We're teaming up with PyConAU this time to host DjangoGirls during the premier python conference. This means we'll have coaches from all around Australia & as a DjangoGirls participant, you'll get access to a discounted ticket to check out the rest of the conference on Sunday!

Friday evening will be our install party (venue TBD) where we install all the necessary requirements for the workshop and you'll get the opportunity to meet your feelow participants and coaches. It's pretty casual. If you can't make the Friday, that's ok! It doesn't disqualify you from applying. If you can't make it on the Friday for the install party, we'll help get you sorted for Saturday beforehand to give you the most amount of time to work on the actual tutorial.

We believe the tech industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. We want to offer you the opportunity to learn the basics of programming in a safe environment. Who knows, maybe you'll even end up transitioning careers!

Do you identify as a woman? Do you have a laptop? Then you're eligible to apply for our workshop! You don't need to know anything technical – our workshop is for women who are completely new to programming. It's a great non-confrontational introductory workshop.

Don't identify as a woman? That's ok! We accept applications from men as well. However, women will be given preference. There are only 60 spots available this time.

By becoming an attendee you'll:

  • learn to create your first website
  • be fed by us during the event
  • meet other women looking to learn new skills
  • connect with experts who work in the field
  • learn the basics of programming with mentors that do this everyday
  • find out how to switch your career with your new skills
  • get a discount to PyConAu 2017, the premier python conference
