We are pleased to announce our next keynote speakers: Ola Sitarska and Ola Sendecka, who kicked off Django Girls with a workshop at EuroPython 2014 last year. Since then the idea has spread around the globe to over 20 countries.
Django Girls ------------
Django Girls is an non-profit oriented organization that empowers and helps women to organize free, one-day programming workshops by providing tools, resources and support.
The Keynote -----------
It’s Dangerous To Go Alone, Take This: The Power of a Community
Ola and Ola will take you on a fantastic journey to the magical world of little Liz, who is totally enchanted by technology. The story of Liz will show that with a little bit of magic, curiosity, courage and hard work, you can defeat all the obstacles standing in your way. You’ll discover with her that making big and scary things is easier when you’re not doing them alone. Because sometimes, one magical spell, the helpful hand of a friend or this shiny sparkle is all it takes to make a dent in one’s universe.
The Workshop ------------
At this year’s conference, we will again be hosting a Django Girls workshop. Please see the workshop website for details on how to sign up as an attendee, coach, or support the workshop as sponsor.
PS: Ola & Ola had already confirmed back in February. Thanks to them for their support in keeping this secret for such a long time :-)
