In this course, we're going to build a web application with Django. And along the way, you will learn about all its major components. We'll cover templates and URL mappings, the Django model API, and the admin site, using HTML forms for user input and validating that input, user authentication and login, and much, much more. By the end of this course, you'll have a firm understanding of all of that and how it works together. And you'll be ready to become a Django developer and create your first website with Django.
