Django for Everybody Specialization


Course Description

The Django for Everybody Specialization is designed to introduce Python programmers to the world of web development using the Django library. With a focus on building rich web applications, this specialization covers the fundamentals of Django, including HTML, CSS, SQL, JavaScript, jQuery, and JSON Web Services. By the end of this course, students will have the skills to build their own Django applications and develop a solid understanding of web development principles.

Throughout the four courses in this specialization, students will learn how to install and deploy Django applications, build HTML web pages styled with CSS, and create a data model using Django’s built-in functionality. They will also learn how to apply model query and template tags/code using the Django Template Language, allowing them to retrieve and display data from a database on their website.

The specialization also covers crucial aspects of web development, such as implementing login functionality by defining sessions, cookies, and one-to-many models. Students will gain valuable knowledge on how to build objects and write syntactically correct JavaScript code, as well as gain an understanding of the basic elements of low-level jQuery.

It is highly recommended that learners have prior knowledge of Python before enrolling in this specialization. For a comprehensive understanding of Python programming, students may consider taking the Python for Everybody Specialization or an equivalent course.
