Course Description:

This Full Stack Web Development training is a five-day online, hands-on course that teaches students how to develop Web applications using the Python and Django frameworks. Students explore the basics of creating basic applications using the MVC (model-view-controller) design pattern, as well as more advanced topics such as:

  • administration
  • session management
  • authentication
  • automated testing.

This comprehensive, practical Full Stack Web Development training course provides an in-depth exploration of working with the programming language, not an academic overview of syntax and grammar. Students will immediately be able to use Python and Django to complete tasks in the real world.
