Introduction to Django

Introduction to Django

Bascom Bridge’s  Introduction to Django training teaches existing Python developers the fundamentals of creating Web applications using the popular Django framework. Attendees learn how to properly architect MVC (model view controller) applications using Django and integrate forms and file management. Participants also learn how to create and execute automated tests to validate their code quality.

Note: This course can be taught for either Python 2.x or Python 3.x.



All students will:

  • Develop web sites based on content stored in a relational database management system
  • Understand the model view controller (MVC) pattern and how it is implemented in Django
  • Create Django templates for easy-to-modify views
  • Map views to URLs
  • Take advantage of the built-in Admin interface
  • Provide HTML form processing
  • Integrate automated tests with your code


All students should have a working knowledge of Python, HTML 5, and CSS.


All attendees receive comprehensive course materials.


  • Python 2.7 or later (including 3.x) (available from
  • Django framework (pip install django)
  • A text editor or IDE (PyCharm Community Edition is an excellent free editor if you don’t have a strong preference)
  • For classes delivered online, all participants need either dual monitors or a separate device logged into the online session so that they can do their work on one screen and watch the instructor on the other. A separate computer connected to a projector or large screen TV would be another way for students to see the instructor’s screen simultaneously with working on their own.
