What is

Django Girls 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. It is a volunteer run organization with hundreds of people contributing to bring more amazing women into the world of technology.

The Impact

Since 2014, an army of 323 volunteers in the Django Girls community organized 163 events. We've been to 130 cities in 58 countries (see them all on a map).

A total of 4034 incredible women have attended events organized by members of the community.

Last Year

In 2016, we hosted our first Django Girls in Kansas City. With the help of 16 mentors, we introduced nearly 100 women to web development through Django.

What is

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Built by experienced developers, it takes care of much of the hassle of Web development, so you can focus on writing your app without needing to reinvent the wheel. It’s free and open source.

Fun fact: Django was founded in Lawrence, KS!
