Women are often under-represented in IT. And yet, at any age and whatever their level and background, it is a field that can arouse much of their interest.
To overcome this, R0SEH1PSters community organises Django workshops targeted at women to introduce them to the world of coding and technology by teaching them how to successfully create a blog application and deploy it to the internet. And who knows, a sparkle for these newly-discovered IT metiers may shine.
The aim of Django Girls is also to increase the diversity within the industry.
Mentors are mainly female volunteers who bring their passion to the workshop and are part of the awesome atmosphere attendees can feel during each event. Workshops are organised worldwide regularly since 2014.
Hosted by IdeaSquare and supported by CERN IT department and Diversity Team, the Geneva workshop will take place on Friday 26 evening and Saturday 27 February 2016 all day.
People interested in participating must apply online on https://djangogirls.org/geneva/, where further information will also be available. Mentors have already been identified.
Deadline for applications: Thursday 11 February.
Limited number of seats!
The event is entirely free and is not limited to any age nor background.
