Have you ever wanted to create a Web application but didn't know where to start? Have you previously tried to learn Django but got fed up with incomplete YouTube videos and poorly written tutorials? Or are you looking to move your code from Django 2 to Django 3?
THEN THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU!
In my Django course, I will walk you through the Django web framework from beginning to end! I'm a self-taught programmer so I know what it feels like to start from scratch. I care about your learning, but even more importantly... I care about you!
What is Django?
Django is an open-source web framework that is written in Python. It was created about twelve years ago, but new in 2020 we have Django 3 with a whole new set of features and capabilities!
Django is an amazing framework for web developers because it provides the infrastructure required for database-driven websites that have user authentication, content administration, contact forms, file uploads, and more. Instead of creating all of these features from scratch, you can use the Django framework and utilize these components that are already built, and focus your time on developing your web app instead.
If you're going to be working with Python, especially for web applications or web design, you'll want to learn the Django framework. It will save you a ton of time!
Contents and Overview
I believe we learn best by doing. So, throughout this course you'll be presented with coding quizzes and challenges in order for you to test what you just learned. This format will allow you to actually learn Django and not just follow along like a robot ;)
We will use Python in this course, so if you have never used Python before, we will start with a python refresher to get you up to speed (no other python experience required).
We will then dive into making three complete websites:
1 - Password Generator: A simple website to create a random password with several options. You will learn how to:
Create a new project
Work with Django's URL routing
Submit and handle HTML form data
2 - Personal Portfolio: Create your own portfolio to show to potential employers showing off your resume, previous projects, and a fully functional blog. You will learn how to:
Add apps to your project
Work with models and databases (including SQLite)
Access the admin panel
Create super users
Make a responsive website with Bootstrap 4
Work with static and media files
Formating dates and purals
3 - Todo Woo: A website where a user can sign up for an account, and fully manage a todo list with the ability to create, edit, and delete. You will learn how to:
Work with the authentication system (sign up, login, logout)
Create virtual environments
Establish model relationships
Require login for certain pages
Create a CRUD application (Create, Read, Update, Delete)
Queries and filters
I will also walk you through Git, which is an awesome tool for developers that allows you to create multiple versions of your code. I'll explain why this is useful and help you understand why you should use it.
Additionally, I will show you how to take the projects that you made in this course and publish them live on the web through Python Anywhere. Like I said, I will take you from the very beginning to the very end!
Course material is regularly refreshed to include all of the newest updates and information. Additionally, I have made this course downloadable, so you can work through the class offline, making it as convenient as possible for you! Most instructors won't allow this, but I want you to be able to enjoy this course in whichever way is best for you :)
Don't waste your time scouring the internet and trying to piece together how to learn Django on your own. Invest in yourself, and allow me to teach you Django while having fun.
