Django Carrots tutorials

Tutorials walking new programmers through the process of building their first website in Python and Django.

Loose outline

  1. Installing Python and setting up development environment
  2. Python basics
  3. "Snakes!" online competition
  4. Creating a polling application in Django
  5. Deploying the application

Build instructions

Just run:

$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ make html

Documentation should be created in build/html directory.

Print version

For print version you will need XeTeX engine (because PDFLatex doesn't support Unicode, go figure):

$ make latex
$ cd build\latex

# Open workshops.tex and remove '\DeclareCharacter' directive
$ xelatex workshops.tex

Why Python 3?

Because it's the future. Also, Python 3 makes it possible to skip the whole section of the tutorial describing Unicode and character encodings in general. There is no use in scaring newbies from the start.
