Welcome to The Ultimate Beginner's Guide to Django. If you're brand new to Django, or have gotten lost in online tutorials, this is the course for you. I'll take you from absolute beginner to creating 3 complete Django websites. We'll also cover how to publish your sites.
This course starts with a Python Refresher. Django is a web framework written in Python. If you're new to Python, or just a bit rusty, this section will get you up to speed as quickly as possible. You don't need to be a Python expert to make Django website but a base knowledge is needed. In the Python Refresher, I'll teach you a new concept, show you some examples, then present you with an interactive coding challenge to make sure you've understood.
The 3 website we'll make are as follows:
Also included in the course is a section showing you how to deploy your blog to a server and publish it for the world to see! I'll take you step by step through working with a Ubuntu Linux server that will run your Django code 24/7.

Project Kickoff for the Pig Latin Translator. This section is all about learning the basics of Django.
Now that our project has been created, let's talk about the auto generated files Django created for us.
One of the most important concepts in Django. How to route traffic with URL dispatching.
We'll bring HTML into our project to enhance our web page.
We'll create a basic form to submit text to be translated.
We cover how to send and process text from a textfield.
The dirty work of translation! But pigs love dirty work ;)
We'll show the Pig Latin translation in our HTML file.
Time to test your learning! Go add an about page to your site!
I'll show you how I added an about page. *Only watch if you have completed the challenge already*
Wrapping things up. Time to start a blog!
I'm Nick Walter, an iOS developer that has been focused on mobile app design and creation for over 3 years. My involvement in the iOS community started off with a bang, and in 2013 I was one of 25 students worldwide to be invited to Apple's "Cocoa Camp." Within my community, I am also co-president of an Apple developer group called "Cocoa Heads."
I've always had an itch to make things, but growing up in a small town I had limited access to programming resources. This frustration drove my early interest in online education. After experimenting with various companies, learning styles, and teaching processes, I've adopted the best strategies and used them in my courses. My experience as an online student has directly influenced my teaching style, and I am now proud to help students all over the world with their online learning goals.
Since the announcement of the new Swift programming language by Apple, I have buried myself in the Apple documentation and any online resource that is available. In my first Swift course, I provide students with a detailed explanation of the topics and skills needed to learn Swift, an overview of the basic features of the new language, and get you started to begin building your first products.
Prior to teaching the internet's first course on Swift, I have created 5 iOS apps from scratch that are currently live in the App Store and being used by thousands of users worldwide. Using my experience launching my own apps, I'll walk you through the shortcuts that can save you time and frustration from having to teach yourself.
