Django Girls Workshop @ PyCon 2015

A guest post by Django Girls.



Django Girls is a non-profit organization that organizes free, one-day workshops to teach women who have never programmed before how to build their first web application using Python, Django, HTML and CSS.
You are invited to the PyCon 2015 Django Girls Workshop on April 9th, just before PyCon 2015 starts, at the Palais de Congres in Montreal. As a Django Girls workshop attendee, you will be provided a free ticket to PyCon which takes place from April 10th to April 12th, so you can dive deeper into the wonderful world of programming and get to know our amazing community.
You don’t need to have any programming experience - All you need to do is bring your laptop and your motivation to learn. You will work at your own pace in groups of 4 (3 attendees and one coach) Your coach will walk you through the Django Girls tutorial (http://tutorial.djangogirls.org)
If you would like to learn how to build your first web application (a blog) with Python and Django please check out the Django Girls website and apply. Applications are now open and will remain open until February 8th. Selected participants will be notified by February 22nd. If you have questions or need help, please send an email to pyconus@djangogirls.org.
Please spread the word about the workshop! We look forward to seeing you in Montreal!

Within just 5 months, Django Girls has grown from a series of workshops into a whole new community. There have been over 15 workshops in many different countries so far, which have brought almost 450 new women into the community.
