Creating Real-World Applications with Django

When creating a web app, there are so many questions to consider. How are you going to manage security? What about encryption? Authentication? Authorization? Administration? Implementing the various aspects of a real-world application can be challenging. Fortunately, Django makes it much easier! This back-end web development framework allows you to focus on what your application needs to do rather than on how everything is going to work behind the scenes.

Join the dynamic team of Christopher Harrison and Susan Ibach as they head back into the studio to build on where they left off in Developing Websites Using Python and Django. See how to create an application, starting with the underlying database. Get into the UI, look at managing validation, and explore security. Find out how Django makes it very easy to create a basic back end for managing application data. And add what your end users and customers need, with confidence, knowing that the requirements for the support team are met out of the box.

Course Outline:

  • Getting started
  • Administration
  • Security
  • Validation
  • Ajax calls
