Throughout the 52 lectures and 6.5 hours of content, you'll create your own website from scratch using Django and featuring an authentication system, E-Commerce with PayPal and Stripe, Geolocation and map integration and web services. In every section, you'll take a quiz as well putting your new knowledge to practice so that your skills stay with you when you're done.

 

You'll start by getting to grips with the absolute basics of what Django can do. These sections are slower and more thorough than others so that you gain a solid foundation. After that, you'll begin to build your site, adding a new element with each section of the course. By the end of the course, you'll have fleshed out a fully functional web storefront that's capable of taking orders, processing payments and receiving and displaying input from the user. You'll be surprised at how rapidly you can build complex functionality - that's the true beauty of Django!

 

This course was created with intermediate Python users in mind, who want to move their expertise onto the web. If you're a beginner developer, you may find this course a little too far beyond your grasp unless you already have experience with another language, or have a working knowledge of Python and programming concepts.

 

Tools Used

Django: Django creates web applications, specifically software normally backed by a database that includes some kind of interactivity and operates through a browser. It eases the creation of complex database-driven websites with its framework.

Python: Python is one of the most widely used, general purpose programming languages in the world. It emphasises simplicity and readability, and has almost endless uses in all areas from GUI programing to web programming and everything in between.

PyCharm: PyCharm is a smart code editor that supports Python and a number of other languages like JavaScript, CSS and more. It is an Integrated Development Environment that provides code analysis, graphical debugging, intergrated unit testing, and supports web development with Django.

Git: Git is a free and open source version control system, designed to handle both small and large projects with speed and data integrity. It will record changes you make as you build your website so that if you need to recall and earlier version, you can do so easily.

Certificate Exam: The exam is free of charge to students who paid for the course bundle through Stone River eLearning or one of its affiliates or resellers.
