Dgentle Django is a two day workshop geared towards the Django Absolute Beginner. We will be introducing the Django Web Framework and go through several tutorials to get students up and running, and give them the ability to build their own websites.
The class is two days long. We start at 10am and go until about 5pm each day. Lunch is provided courtesy of Willow Tree Apps.
A general understanding of Python is required. You don't need to be an expert, but we will be working with Django concepts instead of focusing on Python itself.
We ask that you have no knowledge of Django! We are geared towards the beginner, and may move too slowly for those with experience. Please feel free to ask about being an assistant however (firstname.lastname@example.org)!
A (very) rough curriculum follows:
- Web frameworks
- What/Why Django
- How Django displays web pages
- Templates/Models theory
- Database interaction
- Creating your fully operational website
