Course Description

"Django for Everybody" is a comprehensive online course that teaches learners how to develop web applications using a popular web development framework. The course is designed for beginners and those with some programming experience who want to learn how to build web applications using this framework. The course covers the key concepts of the framework, including models, templates, views, URL routing, forms, and authentication. Learners will also gain hands-on experience with building web applications using the framework, by creating several small projects throughout the course. The course is divided into several modules, each covering a different aspect of the framework. The first module provides an overview of the framework, including its history, features, and benefits. Learners will also learn how to install the framework and set up a development environment. The second module covers the basics of building web applications with the framework. Learners will learn how to create a project, create models and templates, and implement views and URL routing. The module also covers how to work with databases and how to use the framework's ORM to interact with the database. The third module covers forms and validation in the framework. Learners will learn how to create HTML forms, validate user input, and handle form submission. The module also covers how to use the framework's built-in form handling capabilities to simplify form processing. The fourth module covers authentication and security in the framework. Learners will learn how to implement user authentication and authorization, including how to create login forms, restrict access to certain parts of the application, and handle user sessions. The final module covers advanced topics, including how to work with APIs, use the framework with third-party libraries, and deploy applications to a production environment. Throughout the course, learners will have access to hands-on exercises and quizzes to reinforce their understanding of the material. The course also includes a discussion forum where learners can ask questions and collaborate with other students. By the end of the course "Django for Everybody", learners will have a solid understanding of how to build web applications using the popular framework. They will also have gained the skills and confidence to continue exploring the framework on their own, and to start building more complex web applications using the framework. Author: Charles R.
