Starting a New Django Project: Building a Startup Categorizer with Blog
We have a lot to do and a lot to learn, but instead of jumping right in, let’s take a moment to understand what we’re doing.
Part I is an example meant to demonstrate the core features of Django. Part I is intended to be read linearly. Jump between chapters at your own peril!
This first chapter is a general introduction to the modern world of building dynamic websites. We start by introducing web technologies and jargon before taking a look at Django. Our introduction to Django focuses on what Django is and appropriate ways to use it. We then outline the project we’ll build, scoping out the content for not only Part I but also Parts II and III. This overview gives us the opportunity to use Django to generate a basic project that we’ll use throughout the book.
