Django is one of the world's leading web development platforms.

Django is one of the world's leading web development platforms. This Python web framework makes your app building experience smoother, faster, and easier. It is a key feature behind the success of many start-ups across the world, including Instagram and Nextdoor. This course introduces next-level advanced concepts to help you build your own professional-grade Django applications. Author Kevin Veroneau starts off by explaining how class-based views-a powerful, but often poorly understood feature-work in Django. Then learn how to create custom middleware to help organize frequently used code. Have you ever wanted to build a complete RESTful API? Find out how to do just that, starting with a basic read-only API and then adding key-based authentication to allow the full range of CRUD functionality. Plus, discover how to use model managers and the Q method to make it easier to get the data we need to our views and clients. For the finishing touches, dive into the details of caching to improve application performance, and then add custom management commands to help automate routine tasks. Note: Mastering Django Web Development was created by Packt Publishing. We are pleased to host this training in our library.
