A Week of REST, a four-day conference devoted to the WordPress REST API that takes place September 4-9 in Darwin Lake, Matlock in the United Kingdom, has announced it is offering two full scholarships for students and under-represented groups in the tech industry.

“The WordPress REST API is transforming how people use WordPress, opening it up to new technologies and communities. We want to enable people from under-represented groups in technology to develop the skills they need to use the REST API and further their career,” said Siobhan McKeown, Events Director at Human Made.

The scholarships are worth £1500, and include all of the workshops, training, accommodation, meals, and transfer to Derby or Matlock station. To qualify for the scholarships, you must be employed or looking for work in the field of web development or design.
