Python is the most popular programming language of the world - it's versatile, easy to learn and very powerful!
We already got a Python course which you can take if you want to learn Python.
But one of the primary things you can build with Python is a website! You can use Python for web development.
And to make that easier, you would typically use a framework like Django - simply because that allows you to focus on your core business logic and you don't need to re-invent the wheel and implement all the nitty-gritty technical details from scratch.
And this course is about Django - the most popular Python web development framework out there!
Django covers all aspects of web development - from handling requests and responses, over rendering dynamic HTML pages with templates, all the way up to making database access and data management easy. It's all baked in and it's all covered in great detail in this course!
This course teaches Django from the ground up - you don't need to know anything about it to get started. Basic Python and web development knowledge is all you need.
We'll start at the absolute basics and understand how to create Django project, how to run them and how to add features - step by step.
In detail, this course covers:
Creating and understanding Django projects
Understanding URLs, views, requests and responses
Working with templates and static files like CSS and images
Working with data and models
Connecting data with relationships (one-to-many, one-to-one, many-to-many)
Querying data with Django's powerful model solution
Adding administration panels to your projects
Handling user input with forms - manually and with Django's built-in form support
Advanced features like class-based views (and when to use them)
Dealing with file uploads and how to serve uploaded files
Working with sessions
In-depth deployment instructions and examples
Different ways of deploying and serving static files and user uploads
And much more!
All those concepts are taught in great depth and backed up by a complete example course project where we build a "Blog website" from the ground up.
Therefore, you'll learn all the important concepts and the theory and you're also going to be able to see it applied to a real project.
Hence, once you completed the course, you'll have a very solid understanding of Django and you'll be able to dive into your own Django projects!
Who this course is for:
- Python developers who want to take the next step and dive into web development with Python
- Everyone interested in learning how to build websites with Python

Experience as (Web) Developer
Starting out at the age of 12 I never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. Early I started creating websites for friends and just for fun as well. Besides web development I also explored Python and other non-web-only languages. This passion has since lasted and lead to my decision of working as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun I have in this job is immense and really keeps that passion burningly alive.
Starting web development on the backend (PHP with Laravel, NodeJS, Python) I also became more and more of a frontend developer using modern frameworks like React, Angular or VueJS in a lot of projects. I love both worlds nowadays!
I also build full-stack applications and acquired expert DevOps and cloud computing knowledge - proven by the many AWS certifications I hold (incl. the top-level Solutions Architect Professional certification).
As a self-taught developer I had the chance to broaden my horizon by studying Business Administration where I hold a Master's degree. That enabled me to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. While learning, that I enjoy development more than these fields, the time in this sector greatly improved my overall experience and skills.
Experience as Instructor
As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enables me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses and more than 2,000,000 students on Udemy is the best proof for that.
Whether working as development instructor or teaching Business Administration I always received great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.
Together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience to our more than 2,000,000 students.
