The workshop will be held at the Fusionbox office on Saturday, October 22nd from 9am-6pm and is free to attend.
Each one-day workshop walks attendees through building a blog application from scratch, using HTML, CSS, Python and Django. Attendees will work in small groups, guided by experienced Django programmers.
Fusionbox believes that better programming and ideas come from a diversity of thought and experience. It is one of our values to support women and minorities who want to become programmers.
Django Girls is a non-profit organization that provides resources for women to plan free programming workshops targeted towards other women. The goal of Django Girls is to give women a comfortable avenue into the world of technology and to increase the diversity of the programming community.
Applications for the workshop are due by September 29th. Fusionbox is also still looking for more female coaches to help lead the workshop, so experienced Django programmers can still participate in the workshop. Fill out an application here.
