Come join me as we create our first scalable Django application … in only 3 hours!

Django is used by some of the largest websites on the internet, including Instagram, Pinterest, and Disqus— serving multiple billion page views, and unique visitors a month on Django stacks.

I’ve loved working with Django these last couple years and would now like to help you join the club by walking you through the official tutorial!

What this course is not:

I do not cover programming fundamentals or python syntax. You do not need to be an expert by any means but you should be comfortable with the basics of at least one programming language so that we can focus on Django and not programming in general. (You can take this course if you’re new to programming but expect to look up some of the basics on your own as this will not be covered.)

I may not be able to look at your code and tell you what’s wrong. I will if I can, but keep in mind that I may not be able to spend too much time debugging your code.

If you’re looking for advanced topics, you may want to download the source code of this course first and see if you could produce it on your own.

But, if you want to add Django to your tool belt – remember it’s used on some of the busiest sites on the net – and you haven’t yet taken the official tutorial, you need to download this course this minute.

Stop DELAYING and try Django!

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone who would like to go over the official Django tutorial with helpful suggestions
  • Entrepreneurs who would like to quickly learn how to setup a website in an environment that can scale (it’s great for MVP’s)
  • Coders with PHP / Ruby or other web experience who would like to try Django
  • Self-starters who don’t have much programming experience but want to give it a try (with some free help)
  • *NOT FOR YOU IF*: you’ve already completed the official tutorial (you’ll find this repetitive)
  • *NOT FOR YOU IF*: you run a non-Mac computer AND don’t know how to open the command line on your system or install Python or MySQL without visual help. (I can take you to the download page but you won’t be able to watch me perform the installation on my system as I only have my Mac.)

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

  3. Sachin Gupta

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

  4. Vincent Beaudet

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Devang Jain

    The course is not updated and most of the solution codes don’t work and there are no video solutions towards the end

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
