Django Girls, a non-profit organization that empowers women through free computer programming workshops, will be hosting a workshop in Ota, Ogun State to teach young women computer programming for free.
Django Girls Ota, like every other Django Girls workshop, will last a day with 25-30 young women, who are expected to all be total beginners, taught how to build websites from scratch.
The workshop will take place on August 6, 2016 at the Afrihub building of Bells University Ota with an installation party on August 5.
Interested persons should apply for the event by July 23, 2016. Participants need not know anything about programming to participate. All they need do is bring their own laptop and an open mind.
At the workshop, the participants will create their first website, be mentored by programmers and be well-fed by the organizers (there’ll be drinks, chops, beverages and cakes).
“We believe the IT industry will greatly benefit from bringing more women into technology. We want to give you an opportunity to learn how to program and become a fab programmer,” the organizers stated in a post.
This is the second event Django Girls is hosting in the country. Django Girls Lagos was the first – applications for its second instalment will open on July 18, 2016.
