Your invitation to be a part of my new book launch

I have a new book for beginners coming out very soon.

In this new book I answer the big questions I get from beginners:

  • Why should I use Django?
  • What problems does Django help me solve?
  • What if I don’t know Python?
  • Please, can you give me something real? Something I can build and show off to my friends, or a potential employer – not just snippets like everyone else on the Internet?

Written for Django 1.11 and Python 3.6, the book teaches you to program using the absolute latest version of Django and Python.

By the end of the book you will not only know all of the basics to writing an awesome Django website, but you will have a functioning website ready for deployment, or to demonstrate to an employer – Or to show off to your friends 🙂

Anyone who signs up below will not only get to be a part of an exciting book launch, but will get the eBook version for half price as a part of a limited time launch special!

Will send you more information by email closer to launch day.
