Django Takeoff!! Course (2021)

The last couple of months I have been working on improving a book that I wrote last year.

Books are great resources to get the message accross, but when it comes to programming, it gets difficult to display code in a book without encountering formatting and readability problems.

This is why I decided to use a completely different packaging for my content. I decided to create an online programming course called Django Takeoff!! Course


I have written extensively about this book/course, so you can check out the posts below to know more about the why of creating this Django course.

Django Takeoff!! Series

Why I wrote Django Takeoff!!

To give you a taste of the format and the content being offered, I have made the first 10 chapters of the course free.

I have outlined the entire content of the course in the table of contents below.

Thanks in advance for checking it out!!
