Learning Website Development with Django is a new book from Packt which is a beginner’s tutorial to building web applications, quickly and cleanly, with the Django application framework. Written by Ayman Hourieh, this book is a beginner’s guide to designing, developing and deploying a fully-featured dynamic website using the features of Django.
Django is a high-level Python web framework that was developed by a fast-moving online-news operation to meet the stringent twin challenges of newsroom deadlines and the needs of web developers. It is designed to promote rapid development and clean, pragmatic design and lets users build high-performing, elegant web applications rapidly. Django focuses on automating as much as possible and adhering to the DRY (Don’t Repeat Yourself) principle, making it easier to build high-performance web applications faster, with less code.
This book will take users through the creation of an example web application, with lots of code. Each chapter will add new features to the site, and show what parts of Django to work on to build these features. This book has been specifically written for Python developers new to Django, and its goal is to help them put together Django applications as quickly as possible.
This book is for web developers who want to learn how to build a complete site with Web 2.0 features, using the power of a proven and popular development system, but do not necessarily want to learn how a complete framework functions in order to do this. Basic knowledge of Python development is required for this book, but no knowledge of Django is expected.
