We are delighted to partner with Overstock Ireland and we are holding a one-day in person programming workshop for women that are interested in learning how to code.

We believe that Women can make a huge impact on the I.T. industry if given the opportunity and skills!
Aimed at women that are:

  • New to programming
  • Returning to work
  • From unrelated disciplines but thinking of a career change
  • Currently working in tech industry but new to programming
Expert coaches will teach you how to create a website using Python, Django, HTML & CSS.
The workshop will be based on the Django Girls workshops.
The day will be about learning, positivity and fun!


Q. How much does it cost?

Q. Do I need to have coded before? Nope! This workshop is for beginners. If you have a little knowledge, come along, but this is very much catered for those new to programming and interested in seeing what it is all about.

Q. What do I need to bring? Your laptop - we expect you to bring your own laptop. This gives you a great opportunity to bring home what you work on and continue coding.

Q. What do I need installed on my laptop before the event? It will be useful to have Django installed in advance of the day. We will be emailing out information to registered attendees. And we will be hosting a time online before the event so as we can help anyone who needs it, get set up (this is optional).

Q. Is this workshop for women only? All genders can apply. We encourage a diverse community of programmers. This event is for 18 years + attendees.

Q. Where is this workshop taking place? In the Overstock Ireland Office. The address is: Westgate, Finisklin Business Park, Sligo, F91 HF66

Q. Is there food provided? Yes, there will be coffee, treats and lunch available for all attendees.
