Django Girls Ho Workshop 2017

Programming is a skill you can use all around the globe to empower anyone to do almost anything. Noah, our youngest member is more than aware of opportunity and he is deeply engaged in empowering his female colleges in web programming courses. Django Girls Ho was the first ever IT workshop that involved ladies from Ho Volta Region and its environs in Ghana.

He is part of the organizing team and was so kind to invite Margarte Grimus and me for a call during the event. Margarete shared her expertise in mobile learning and underlined the importance of self learning. I was sharing my past as a programmer, why am I am a programmer, why I think that this skill is future proof and can change the world – if used for the common good. We were both stunned by the motivation of these young women and can only congratulate Noah and his team. You can read more about the event here and support is always welcome.

I would say that the beautiful Key Takeaways summarize best the mindset of the event:

  1. You should never stop learning, because to be a programmer, you need to be dedicated.
  2. Opportunities are endless when you’re good at programming.
  3. You should use the knowledge you have acquired here to help other people.
  4. You should always work in groups. That’s what make great programmers.
