Try Django 1.10 is an introduction to Django version 1.10 by creating a simple, yet robust, URL Shortening Service. This series covers a variety of Django basics as well as Django 1.10 specific material.

Generally the topics will include:

  • How we made the Kirr url shortening service
  • Django Project Setup
  • Class Based Views (& some Function Based Views)
  • Models, Model Forms, Forms, Form Validation
  • Overriding Model Save Method
  • Launching on a Live Server (via Heroku)
  • Custom Validation directly on Django Fields
  • And More

What Technology you’ll learn in the Build a Try Django 1.10 URL Shortening series:

  • Django Framework (version 1.10): a powerful backend framework used by top sites like Instagram and Pinterest. Django makes it easier to have a powerful web application to use for all types of projects. Django is written in Python (and is one of the most popular Python libraries in the world).
  • Bootstrap (version 3.3): a powerful front-end framework used by thousands of sites around the world. Bootstrap makes it easier to have a responsive web application so it looks awesome on any mobile device and any desktop computer.
  • Python 3: One of the top programming languages in the world. Powerful enough for the experts, easy enough for beginners. Why? It uses spaces and line breaks with minimal special characters (like [email protected]#$;*) which means it’s closer to English than most programming languages.

All of our tutorials have a simple goal in mind: get you building something real and quickly through step-by-step training.
