  • = An Awesome Workshop

Coffee, Code, Repeat

Because our workshop from the previous year was such a success we did a lot of the same things for this year. You can read more about that here.

Pita House catered our lunch again this year, and again they didn’t disappoint.

Fresh

We wanted a fresh new design, so sticking with this years Django Girls Foundation’s theme, we also decided to use ‘Code with Kindness’. Little Space Studio sponsored the designs for our swag again this year, and they turned out great!

Shirts and Hoodie Swag


Toptal sponsored our photography this year, which included headshots for anyone participating in the workshop. Attendees and coaches alike seemed to really appreciate this service.
