Newbie mother and daughter coders will walk you through how to create your first Django web app. You'll learn how to set up an environment in the terminal and start building a small application as a code-along exercise. We'll discuss the history and uses of Python/Django too.
Do you want to learn Python but find most “beginner” books and talks too advanced? We are making no assumptions about your knowledge and plan to provide as much background and detail from a true beginner’s perspective, because we are beginners ourselves. Bring your laptop so you can code right along with us. We’ll start with an introduction to what Python is and why it was created and then show you how to install Python and Django and build a simple web application.
