From zero to Django in sixty minutes

I spent a lot of time and effort learning Django in recent months. Much of the time was wasted getting caught up in distractions and best practices. In this session I will show you how to get going quickly with Django. We will cover the basics and explore next steps. If you are new to Django, you should learn how to get up and running quickly and which topics to learn next. 

For those who want to follow along as we build a simple application, be sure to have virtualenv and PIP installed. All the code is at It is a bare-bones application intended to teach Django and not web development. 

Topics covered: 

  • Basic Django terminology
  • Models
  • Views
  • Templates
  • Testing

Topics not covered:

  • Professional best practices
  • Thorough testing
  • Deployment
  • Security
