Explore fundamentals of Django applications, from installation and the structure of a project, to implementations such as views, URLs, and templates, in this 12-video course. Begin by learning how to create a virtual Python environment and install Django, then how to generate a new Django project and describe various files that are created. You will discover how to start the built-in Django development server on the default port, as well as a specified port; define a view and URL pattern in Django to render the text "Hello World" in a web page; and generate a new app within a Django project. Learn about migrations in Django and using the manage.py script of a Django project to propagate model definitions to the database. Then observe working with Django URLs by configuring project and app-level URLs in Django; defining a view that renders an HTML file in its response; and downloading and using boilerplate HTML, CSS, and Javascript files in a Django project. Conclude by learning how to modify boilerplate HTML files to suit Django project requirements.
