Week 2

During week two, we'll start building views and templates to give the application a user interface. We'll also cover testing, why it's important, and how to write tests.

Week 3

In session three, we'll cover more advanced features of the application, such as searching for events by date and category.

Week 4

For the final session, the focus will be on attendees implementing a feature for the application that makes their portfolio project unique.

Full stack developer

Hi there, I'm Zach, a full stack developer with 15 years of industry experience.

My coding journey started with Python, and over the years I've tried many web frameworks, but I always end up coming back to Django. I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm for Django with you!



How much programming experience do I need for this workshop?

No. The workshop is free to all attendees. Optional free Django hosting is also provided by Circumeo.
