What used to take a big team of people can now be accomplished by you and you alone. Its all thanks to the massive improvements to what programming languages can do. Python is the perfect beginners starting point because its simple to understand while being powerful enough for experts to build self-driving cars and AI systems.
This course leverages Python to build a fully functioning eCommerce website and application using the Django framework.
Why Django and why now?
Django is built for speed. Both in functionality and in development time.
Some of the top tech companies are build on Django: Instagram and Pinterest to name a couple.
Django is written in Python and therefore it helps you further master Python.
Huge support from developers around the world. Run into an issue with something in python or Django? A quick google search will likely yield an answer (if not, Ill try to help you out too)
Python is the easiest to start with AND its made for the pros (such as building Artificial Intelligence)
Why eCommerce? Why not social networking?
I do have course called Tweetme that covers building twitter-like service. That course will show you how to create a social network step-by-step. I do encourage you to take that course but Ill say this course should be taken first for a key reason
Validation. Proving any project is worth your effort and time can be very challenging. Proving that a social network is viable is also VERY VERY challenging. eCommerce, on the other hand, its very clear if your project is working: its either making sales or its not.
Heres the thing. I want you to build a super successful project and change your life as a result of that project. I believe the only way you can do that is by committing yourself to working through projects from start to finish. This project is the result of everything Ive ever done and learned in programming. I show you step-by-step to help you learn the context of how all of this is used. Along the way, Ill explain the WHY behind the HOW.
Its an amazingly exciting time to get into coding/programming/software development/technology! I hope you join me.
Don't forget to say Thanks !!!
