As part of the community outreach programme of PyCon Australia, we've put together a few
workshops to introduce people to Python.
We'll be hosting a DjangoGirls workshop and an Electronics workshop at The Edge (part of the State Library of QLD, located at South Brisbane) on Monday 3rd of August, 9am to 12:30pm.
DjangoGirls is a free, half day workshop helping you to
build your first application using HTML, CSS, Python and
Django. People work in small, 3-person groups with a mentor dedicated
to each group. During the workshop, attendees follow a tutorial
written especially for this purpose. The tutorial is also open sourced
and available for free. It covers creating your blog application from
scratch, including deployment to Python Anywhere. Beginners are
welcome. Women are encouraged to come, all are welcome. Bring a
laptop if you can.
