Download Build a Data-Driven Website with Django Course By Skillshare
About This Class
This course will teach aspiring web developers to harness the power of Django web framework and create websites that store and manipulate data. Websites that go further than a simple blog and DO something.
Whether you are new to programming, or just new to Django, this course will lead you through the process of setting up your computer for development with freely-available tools, designing a database from scratch, and crafting a website capable of storing and retrieving objects from that database.
Your instructor, Alyssa, has been working as a software engineer for over six years, using Django to complete projects such as:
- An inventory and checkout system to allow a company to keep track of thousands of devices
- A tool for analyzing log files collected by WiFi devices
- A website to generate meal plans to fit a certain calorie, protein, fat, and carbohydrate goal
To demonstrate the techniques in this class, I will be creating a “fountain pen tracker” website, that will allow a user to keep track of a collection of fountain pens and ink. However, this is not a one-size-fits-all course. Students are encouraged to follow along with any project ideas that capture their hearts.
The project for this class is a development website that allows a user to create, read, update, and delete objects from a database using Python and Django.
Students can work through my sample project, a website to track fountain pens and inks being used in those pens, or devise a project of their own by following along as I talk through the design process.
When brainstorming ideas for a unique project, think about the information that the website will contain. The ideal project for this class will have at least two “objects” being saved that are related to each other in some way. Is there any information in your life that you’d like to organize better, and be able to search?
- Business Projects associated with certain clients
- Pets with vet appointments, each having a location and date
