Try Django Tutorial Series (Last Updated: Jan - 6-2016)
Three project tutorials to help you launch your project this month. Either by collecting early email interest or early payment. This course also teaches you the basics of Django; the #1 Web Framework written in Python.
First Project: Create a blog with Django 1.9 and Bootstrap version 3
Second Project: Create a MVP Landing Page in Django 1.8 and Bootstrap version 3
Third project: Create and launch real live social sharing campaign called "Launch with Code"
Fourth Project: Create an MVP Landing Page to collect payment with Paypal (or pre-orders) for your products or services.
Fifth Project: Introduction to Django 1.7; We're going to teach you how to build a basic eCommerce app that uses Stripe's payment processing.
The Try Django Tutorial Series is designed to help you get used to using Django in building a basic landing page (also known as splash page or MVP landing page) so you can collect data from potential users. Collecting this data will prove as verification (or validation) that your project is worth building. Furthermore, we also show you how to implement a Paypal Button so you can also accept payments (or pre-payments).
Django is awesome and very simple to get started. Step-by-step tutorials are to help you understand the workflow, get you started doing something real, then it is our goal to have you asking questions... "Why did I do X?" or "How would I do Y?" These are questions you wouldn't know to ask otherwise. Questions, after all, lead to answers.
This is an Ad-Free Version of the Try Django Tutorial Series from our Coding Entrepreneurs Youtube Channel. High Res Video Downloads are also included.
Furthermore, we teach you how to launch on a live hosting service called Heroku (we show you were to buy domains as well).Over 184,000 students are currently learning from our courses.

It all started with an idea. I wanted freedom... badly. Freedom from work, freedom from boredom, and, most of all, the freedom to choose. This simple idea grew to define me; it made me become an entrepreneur.
As I strived to gain freedom, overtime I realized that with everything that you do you can either (1) convince someone, somehow, to do it with you or (2) figure out how to do it yourself.
Due to a lack of financial resources (and probably the ability to convince people to do high quality work for free), I decided to learn. Then learn some more. Then some more. My path of learning website design started a long time ago. And yes, it was out of need not desire. I believed I needed a website for a company that I started. So I learned how to do it. The company died, my skills lived on... and got better and better.
It took me a while after learning web design (html/css) to actually start learning programming (web application, storing "data", user logins, etc). I tinkered with Wordpress, believing it could be a "user" site, but I was mistaken. Sure there are/were hacks for that, but they were hacks/work-arounds and simply not-what-wordpress-was-indended-to-be. Wordpress is for blogs/content. Plain and simple.
I wanted more. I had a web application idea that I thought would change the way restaurants hire their service staff. I tested it with my basic html/css skills, had great initial results, and found a technical (programmer) cofounder as a result. He was awesome. We were featured on CNN. Things looked great.
Until... cash-flow was a no-flow. Business? I think not. More like an avid hobby. We had the idea for a business just no business. Naturally, my partner had to find a means of income so I was left with the idea on its own.
Then, I tried Python. I was hooked. It was so easy. So simple. So elegant.
Then, I tried Django. Even more hooked. Made from python & made for web applications. It powers Instagram.com & Pinterest.com (two of the hottest web apps right now?).
Then, I tried Bootstrap. Simple and easy front-end design (html & css) that is super easy to use, mobile-ready, and overall... incredible.
Python, Django, and Bootstrap are truly changing the way the world builds web applications. I believe it's because of the simplicity to learn, the sheer power behind them, and, most of all, the plethora of resources to aid anyone in building their web projects (from packages to tutorials to q&a sites).
I relaunched my original venture with my new found skills. That wasn't enough. It didn't compel me as it once had. I started imagining all the possibilities of all the ideas I've always wanted to implement. Now I could. Which one to start with? There were so many good ideas...
Then another idea, a new & fresh idea, started brewing. I started to believe in the power of learning these skills. What would it mean if other non-technical entrepreneurs could learn? What would it mean if ideas were executed quickly, revenue models proven, all prior to approaching the highly sought-after programmers? What would it mean if entrepreneurs became coders?
And so. Coding for Entrepreneurs was born.
