Really good Online Course, difficult to find online training (where generally there is no interaction with the teacher) as clear as this one! Awesome job, I followed all lessons step by step and everything worked fine... this is a super valuable material for whom is new to Django I think this is a really good starting point.

Comments about oreilly Introduction to Django:

I'm getting my feet wet in the world of Django after learning the basics of Python. The video collection is an awesome tutorial for learning how to get started. The instructor is fantastic. Though I have to agree with some of the previous reviewers in that the instructor goes REALLY fast when she's typing out the code. It's not a big issue if you download the videos and watch them on whatever media player app you prefer on your own device. Aside from that, I highly recommend this to anyone who's interested in learning Django!

Perfect. It doesn't get any better

Comments about oreilly Introduction to Django:

The most impressive eLearning course! Nicole guided presumably zero-knowledge listener, like me and my wife from basics to building fully scalable app! But the most amazing thing here is that course teaches how to do this the RIGHT way using best practices and covering not just coding, but write functional tests, run continuous integration deploys from remote git repos via staging using Codeship to prod with Heroku. And all of that and even more in 3(!) hours! That was unforgettable journey. Bravo!

PS Will definitely take more courses by nlh ;] Thank-you, Nicole!

Very fast presentation speed

By redsox

Comments about oreilly Introduction to Django:

I would agree with another reviewer comments that content is good, but presentation speed is way too fast. In some instances I could not keep track of what's going on author's screen because author is moving too fast. This video course would be better if presentation speed would be slower by about 10-20%.

Great content, presented WAY too fast

By elohquiel

Comments about oreilly Introduction to Django:

The content here is top-notch, but there is a large assumption made that you understand mid-level programming skills. Many aspects of the code aren't explained in detail, you just kind of roll with it.

The biggest gripe is the pace of the presentations, it's very VERY difficult to following along. Often times she moves in and out of pages while you're trying to enter the lines yourself, and the cursor blinking in the background indicates that she is playing back her typing at an accelerated pace. End of story is I had to watch each video several times, and pray that I could pause it just in time before she clicked over to a new script.

The best of the best

Comments about oreilly Introduction to Django:

I have never taken course like that. Nikole takes you from basics to the best practices, teach you not only how to develop with django, but also how to use git with continuous integration server and heroku. Amazing!
