This comprehensive 2-in-1 training course is designed to fine-tune your knowledge of Django with the help of these bite-size videos, which will take you through the advanced concepts of this technology coupled with a practical implementation. This will also be teaching you how to build an e-learning platform using Django.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 2 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Advanced Web Development with Django, will give you all the skills needed to develop powerful websites quickly, with code that is clean and easy to maintain. You’ll focus on how to keep your projects secure, how to integrate third-party libraries to build out quick, but powerful APIs, and how to make your projects easier to work with. You'll then create custom middleware to help you better organize frequently used code. Build a complete REST API by starting out with a basic read-only API and then adding key-based authentication to allow the full range of CRUD functionality. You'll also utilize model managers and the Q method so that we can make it easier to get the data we need to use our views and clients. Finally, you’ll secure your web App using various Django tools.
The second course, Django Projects: E-Learning Portal, shows how to set up a best-practices development environment and then quickly move to writing a simple e-learning system, showcasing the key features of Django and its ecosystem. You’ll take a pragmatic getting-things-done approach, while avoiding decisions that would hurt us in later stages of development. Finally, you’ll have built a simple e-learning platform, including content management, student registration, and a restful API.
By the end of this training program, you will be well versed with the advanced concepts of Django and will emerge as a fully-fledged Django expert.
