DjangoGirls is a non-profit organization and a community that empowers and helps women to organize free, one-day programming workshops by providing tools, resources and support.
Diversity matters to us. We believe the IT industry greatly benefits from having women on the technology teams. Therefore, we like to support activities which give women an opportunity to learn programming. The Prague DjangoGirls workshop is a great example. This workshop took place on Saturday June 11 at our MSD IT Hub in Prague as part of the PyConCZ 2017 Conference. With some help from the coaches, 36 women built their first web application using HTML, CSS, Python and Django. They worked hard and enjoyed it a lot!
After this one-day programming workshop the Czech Python community provides additional options to continue the study of Python basics by attending three-month long courses for beginners known as PyLadies.
