Course Overview
Hi, everyone. My name is Reindert‑Jan Ekker, and welcome to my course, Django: Getting Started. I'm a long‑time developer and educator, and in this course, I will teach you about creating web applications with Django, the web framework for perfectionists. Django is the most popular web development framework for Python, and it's awesome to work with. 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 will cover templates and URL mappings, Django model classes, and the admin site, using HTML forms for user input and much more. By the end of this course, you will have a firm understanding of all of these and how they work together, and you'll be able to create your first website with Django. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Python and the basics of HTML. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn web development with Python and Django, with the Django: Getting Started course at Pluralsight.
