About this event

Django Girls

  • Two days of initiation into computer programming;
  • Inspirational meetings with specialists in digital and web technologies;
  • A human rights and careers talk;
  • A friendly, fun and positive learning environment.

To celebrate the Europe Code Week 2022, two CERN organizations, namely the Women in Technology community and the CERN Microclub, and Geneva-based NGO RightsTech Women are joining forces to organize an in-person edition of Django Girls Geneva, at SDG Solutions Space in collaboration with SDGZine.

This workshop will help you discover the art of programming by creating your own blog and publishing it on the web. Maybe will you be taken by the computing fever?

We recommend that participants bring their own laptops.

On Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 October, we will have a two-day workshop where you will create your first website, supervised by CERN engineer trainers.

Participants: The workshop is open to girls and women aged 14 and older.

Places are limited, so make sure to fill out the application form very carefully!
