“For every 10 women introduced to technological tools, one person is lifted out of poverty”– Mark Zuckerberg. This is one of the things that drive us at AboCoders to train more and more ladies on Digital Literacy and Coding. We believe that with these skills women are developed holistically and more empowered to contribute to the economic development of the country. This is why we are hosting this Django Girls workshop: Digital Skills for Beginners: Creating A Simple Web Application.

At this workshop, which will last a whole day, each attendee will be taught how to create a simple web application using the Django Girls tutorial. They will learn how to use CSS, HTML, Python and Django to create and deploy their web app. At the end of the day, each participant will have developed a basic web application using the languages stated above. We will be using the Django Girls tutorial which has been specially curated for total beginners. Our coaches are expert developers who will guide the participants well and troubleshoot as needed. The workshop will be interactive and project based.

We know that we cannot make programming gurus out of the participants in months not to talk of a day. The aim of the workshop is to:

Get participants excited about making things with tech!
Give participants basic information they can build on.
Open participants to the vista of opportunities tech holds for them.
Have each person create a simple web application from scratch and host it online.
Have participants meet new people who can inspire them to do more.

The workshop will be intense and very rich with a coach to two (or a maximum of three) participants. The session has been curated for mainly IDPs living in Lagos.
