Course description

Django is one of the most popular Python-based Web Application frameworks. It forms the backbone of some major web sites and is known for its relative ease of use and the speed at which you can develop and deploy Python web applications and containers.

Our Python Web App Development with Django Training Course will give existing Python developers great hands-on experience building robust, commercial web applications with the Django framework.

On-site Django Training

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss requirements for on-site Django training – for instance if your developers need to get up to speed with Python first, need a refresher of Python Best Practice, or perhaps wish to explore developing Django apps using a Python spin-off such as Cython or Jython

What you will learn

  • Understand Django Architecture and its take on MVC (Models, Views & Templates)
  • Build and deploy robust Django web apps
  • Integrate with RESTful web services
  • Unit Testing and Debugging Django apps

Who should attend

Python developers who want to benefit from the functionality of the Django web app framework in order to rapidly build, test and deploy commercial-quality web apps.

Prerequisites

Delegates should have attended our Python Programming course or have equivalent Python coding experience.
