Python Django Web Development: To-Do App

Video description

Django and Python may seem challenging at first, but with the right guidance, you can gain the confidence to work with them effectively. In this course, you’ll learn through a step-by-step manner, quickly and easily, and also be able to create professional looking websites, even if you have no programming or web design experience.

You’ll watch and learn as the instructor demonstrates how to build a cool to-do list app. You can follow the instructions and even build your own version of the app. After building the web app, you can make lists and even save them to a database. You can then update the list as you complete the tasks by crossing them off the list. The course will also help you focus on styling the website using the popular Bootstrap CSS framework.
