Learn the ins and outs of Django and how to build web applications

This practical, six-week course from the University of Michigan will give you all the skills you need in order to build Django-based web applications suitable for use by end users.

Define Django login and decipher how cookies are used to support sessions

You’ll learn about cookies, sessions, and authentication processes within the Django framework, and will decipher how cookies are used to support sessions.

You’ll also build navigation into your applications, and a built-in login functionality which will be able to manage login users in views. Then, you’ll explore a multitude of ways in which to easily improve the look and feel of Django applications.

Create, edit, and delete form flow within the Django framework

You’ll then begin to develop a simple application in order to support a classified ads website. In doing so, you’ll be guided through many of the issues and techniques that you may encounter in website development.

You’ll also learn how to move an application from development to production, will demonstrate how to represent links in a database and will create, edit and delete form flow inside of a generic edit view.

Learn from Django and programming experts at the University of Michigan

As the number one ranking public research university within the entirety of the United States, the University of Michigan has been a world leader in research, learning, and teaching for more than 200 years.

You’ll be guided throughout the course by leaders in the programming field, and the course itself is part of a series that introduces Python programmers to building websites using the Django library. Across the four courses, you’ll learn HTML, CSS, SQL, Django, JavaScript, jQuery, and JSON Web Services.

This programming course is designed for learners who are wanting to get into web development and who have some basic Python programming experience.

This series of courses is also excellent preparation for learning other ways to build web applications using technologies like PHP (Web Applications for Everybody), Flask or Ruby on Rails, and therefore could be suitable to anyone wishing to work within these fields.
