Learn how to build a web app with Python and Django
Design and build your own custom web app using Python 3.7 and Django 2.0. Tailored for non-programmers, written by a designer.
Hello Web App originally launched in 2015 on Kickstarter, raising over $13,000 and has been updated for 2018 and is now bundled together with the followup book, Hello Web App: Intermediate Concepts for twice the info.
A simple, informative way of getting started with Django. You won't be able to stop thinking of new ways of using your new found powers :)Cons:
The book does come to an end :(
I do highly recommend this book for getting started with Django. You do need a basic foundation in Python if you are to get the most out of this book. Tracy does provide lots of very helpful tips and a free zine on command line basics (very useful). Everything here is well thought off and refined.
The fun doesn't just stop here, you can even take your knowledge further with "Hello Web Design".
I can't wait to see what's next from Tracy.Hazim Sami has used this product for one year.
Very approachable, up to date, and the generic project that is the backdrop of the book can be adapted to many situations.Cons:
I used this book to prepare for a Django tutorial that I was supposed to deliver on a short notice at a local Python workshop for schoolteachers. It helped me get up to speed fairly quickly - and was great fun to follow along with! The online community and Tracy herself are most encouraging and provide a supportive environment for learners, especially beginners :)Neeldhara has used this product for one month.
