Description

Welcome to the Wagtail CMS course! This course will teach you the ins and outs of Wagtail - a great CMS built in Django and Python.

This course will start off by going through some of the basic features of Wagtail, then we will go right into building a blog project - not with just Django - but with Wagtail! We've probably all created a blog project with Django, but you will see how Wagtail completely changes the game and make it much, much faster to create something like a blog.

Per their website, "Wagtail is a leading open source CMS", which is being used by companies such as Google, NASA and the British NHS. It is a wonderfully easy framework built with Django, with many great built in features.

Some of Wagtail's core competencies include:

- A future proof solution, as it is built in Python

- A rapid development environment

- Security

- Easy integration with third parties

As with all of my classes, I really appreciate feedback; if there are concepts you would like me to focus more on, or concepts that I did not talk about, please let me know so I can add it in.

Who this course is for:
  • Django developers that want to learn how to use Wagtail
