If you like the elegance of the Python programming language, Django is the web framework for you! Django is a powerful but pragmatic framework, with an emphasis on getting work done. If you’ve been wanting to learn more about this popular platform for web application development, then this course is for you!
When learning about a new language or technology, it takes more than simply reading documentation. While this is a great start, the best way to learn and retain new knowledge is to put it to use. In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Derek Jensen will show you how to build a real-world web application using Python and Django. Derek will lead you through the development of a news-feed aggregator for your favorite news sites in order to help you master the fundamentals of Django web development.

- Create a template and add dynamic data.
- Style the application with Bootstrap.
