The Django Crash Course book is a guided walkthrough where we build a real, production-quality Django web application from the ground up.

Originally a large part of our corporate training materials, this tutorial was once only available to companies paying US$3000 a seat for in-person training. The contents of this book are professional-grade and have been used by real software companies to get their engineers up and running fast with Python 3.8 and Django 3.x development.

This book is designed to build solid foundations for any python developer looking to get proficient with Django fast. Once you've finished the book, you'll be able to purchase Django Crash Course extensions on topics such as deployment on various platforms, Django REST Framework (DRF), Javascript frameworks like VueJS and/or React, third-party packages, and more. If you haven't done Python yet, we suggest you spend a few days learning the fundamentals of their language.

This is the Beta version of the book. Beta means that this is an early release version of our book. It's rather stable right now, but periodically we'll update the e-book download with corrections and improved formatting, sending out updates via the last Thursday of each month until we're done.
