Loved the simple article!
Can someone tell me why '.' was added at the end of startproject command? Django documentation did not have that so was wondering what that does. I am kinda new django and was trying to learn as much as I can.

Thank you! The . means to create the product in the current directory.
If you use the option to provide a directory name my_project for instance, Django will generate something like this:

  • my_project\my_project\settings...

In my projects i prefer to isolate the initial Django project in something names core or config.

Anyway, feel free to code the project in your own way.
