Yesterday (1 July 2019), for some strange reason I got the urge to learn Django but I’ve never programmed with python before. I watched a couple of crash courses on youtube. I won’t lie… I was a bit bored cause I understood the basic concepts of programming (loops, arrays, variables, constants, etc.) and all I needed was to understand Python Syntax.
I managed to build a simple project in Django, everything looks good. I’ve been working with Laravel so everything feels a little strange and confusing but it’s to early to make comparisons. I’ll dive into another tutorial and I’ll update this post regularly.
Notes: About 1+ hr long. Really helpful. Must watch. Please note that I did not use JSBin like he did, you can learn using any
text editor IDE on your computer. (I used Visual Studio Code)
PYTHON & DJANGO TUTS
Notes: detailed and I enjoyed the way the course was broken down. It’s 13 hours long so feel free to skip to the important parts. I’ve bookmarked this for future purposes!
Notes: Another amazing tutorial. This was the first one I watched (on python). Mike breaks things down which is useful if you’re a beginner programmer. The main tutorial I watched was about 4hours long on FreeCodeCamp Youtube Channel. It had about 7+ million views. I wanted to reference to Mike’s own channel but you can watch the compiled version here on freecodecamp.
Notes: Based on the comments the tutorial seems GOOD. Updates coming Soooooon….
Notes: I would recommend this tutorial if you’re an absolute beginner. If you’re an advanced programmer but you want to learn django, this might be somewhat slow ‘paced’ for you but it’s worth it.
When you upload images, you might get a broken link. Do not panic like I did (searching through stack overflow and asking myself if this was really worth it). Finish the course, in the last 2 or 3 videos you should define your MEDIA_URL and MEDIA_ROOT. Once this is done, head on to your admin panel and upload data to your course model. Now your image(s) will show (no more broken links)…
Notes: I’m just starting with this course. Updates coming soon…
