In this fast track tutorial you will create a fully blown event website using the python framework Django. On its homepage (http://djangoproject.com) it is described as: “The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines”. In “Learn Django in 4 hours” we will prove that this is very true.
We will get you started right away and let you create something awesome yourself !!!
After that course you will know the most important things about Django – what it can do, how it is used and you will have a feeling for how easy it is to get started. Of course it is not possible to cover all aspects of Django in 4 hours … this is not what we want and it is also not necessary to get you started on the fast lane. … (Oliver Moser – Senior IT Conultant, Instructor)
