Django Essentials Part 1: Create Dynamic Web Applications with Django

Video description

This is the first of a two-part video series that covers the essential topics for building web applications using Django Producer Coen de Groot starts by showing you how to install Django and create a basic view, URL configuration, and HTML template to display your first web page. He then goes on to explain how views handle user requests and return website content, including routing requests to view functions. You'll also get an introduction to the basics of HTML and how it's used to structure content for web pages, followed by segments covering templates and their usage in creating reusable components for rendering data in HTML format and generating web pages. Following that, you will learn Django's template tags and filters and how they can modify data before rendering in templates. The Django Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) system, which simplifies the creation and management of databases, is also covered. Additionally, you will gain insight into the syntax for defining models and performing database migrations to keep the Python code in sync with the database structure. Lastly, you will see how to use the ORM to retrieve specific data, filter results, aggregate data, and more.
