This course was created with intermediate Python users in mind, who want to move their expertise onto the web. If you're a beginner developer, you may find this course a little too far beyond your grasp unless you already have experience with another language, or have a working knowledge of Python and programming concepts.
Django:Django creates web applications, specifically software normally backed by a database that includes some kind of interactivity and operates through a browser. It eases the creation of complex database-driven websites with its framework.
Python:Python is one of the most widely used, general purpose programming languages in the world. It emphasises simplicity and readability, and has almost endless uses in all areas from GUI programing to web programming and everything in between.

"I really enjoyed that this course attempts to use the most recent modules. It is difficult to keep a course like this up to date (a couple of the modules are a version ahead of what this course uses, only the user authentication section is slightly out of date). I have tried unsuccessfully several times to learn Django and this is the first course I have been able to successfully finish and be proud of what I accomplished. If you follow along with the lectures you will have a fully functional site created."

"When i first started, with Django i was really struggling, then i found this course and things became easier and easier. The lecturer makes things simple to understand so if you are looking to enter the world of Django this is well worth the price in my opinion and a must for those that may be struggling:)"
