Abuja ladies! This is for you. AboCoders brings you an opportunity to learn how to create and manage a website. Do you live in Abuja or close by or anywhere in Nigeria and are interested in understanding how programming works and how websites are built? Register now to be a part of #DjangoGirlsAbuja, a free programming workshop!
Django Girls is a global not- for- profit organization that helps women get involved with technology and enabling them to be creators by teaching them to build their own website using #Django and #Python programming language. It is an initiative that is aiming to introduce women who have never coded before to the world of technology and increase diversity.
We are looking to get more women active in STEM fields. Our goal is to demystify computers, explain the workings behind the internet and inspire women to become technology solutions creators while still pursuing their passions either in fashion, beauty, business as well as encourage to pursue careers in tech. We show women how easy it is to bring their brilliant ideas to life empowering them with the right tools, and a great community of women in technology.
The event is being hosted by AboCoders Nigeria (www.abocoders.org.ng) which is a project that trains women and girls in Nigeria (especially those in the North) on digital literacy and programming. This is going to be the first Django Girls event in Abuja and it will be a FREE two-day workshop. It is scheduled to hold on the 20th and 21st of January, 2017 at Enspire Incubator, NEPZA HQ, Zambezi Street, Maitama, Abuja.
Date: January 2oth & 21st, 2017.
Venue: Enspire Incubator, NEPZA HQ, Zambezi Street, Maitama, Abuja.
We are inviting 60 girls from all over Nigeria to join us and learn how to build websites and learn the basics of programming using HTML, CSS, Python and Django. The workshop was designed with total beginners in mind, so do not worry if you know nothing about building a website, you are not excluded. You would be taught in small groups of 3 by an experienced and dedicated coach using the very detailed and standard DjangoGirls tutorial.
To attend, you have up till December 31 to apply. You can access the application here www.djangogirls.org/abuja/
Offering an absolutely free workshop won’t be possible if it weren’t for our uber-amazing sponsors. To make the workshop more interesting and of greater impact, you can still become a sponsor. You might be able to offer us internet access for that day or provide accommodation for participants coming from outside Abuja. There are a whole lot of things you can do to help optimise the workshop, please send us a
