Django Girls which is a global non-profit organisation have set their aim to integrate more women into the technology field. It is important that they are not defaulting in that aim as they are organising free programming workshops where participants are taught the basics of programming and how to build a website using HTML, CSS, Python and Django.
Over 63 countries have hosted the Django girls workshop and the program have trained over 5,000 women since its inception in 2014.
Stating their aim clearly, they hope to encourage gender diversity in the tech field by getting more women involved in tech. They break down programming and provide resources to women thereby inspiring them to create IT solutions.
In what I see as a very swift move to improve the level of tech amongst ladies in Nigeria, Django Girls Aba is looking to train 45 women on how to build a website. Beginners are targeted in this program. So even if you are alien to programming, you can register. To ensure all attendees are carried along, the event would be structured in teams. These teams would consist of four personnel – one coach, and three other participants.
Django Girls Aba has been scheduled to hold at Rhema University. They will begin with the pre-installation party on 18th August 2017, while concluding with the main event on 19th August 2017.
