About the workshop

With every step of the tutorial you will learn Django’s basic principles by creating a bookmark application similar to Delicious or Pinboard. This is why the tutorial is named django-marcador: marcador means bookmark in Spanish.

If you have basic knowledge in the following areas it will be a lot easier to follow the tutorial:

  • object-oriented programming (using Python)
  • HTTP Request/Response model
  • HTML and CSS
  • SQL and relational databases

A lot of people have made their first steps with Django using the django-marcador tutorial - you can be the next!
