About This Class

Building your own API with Django and Python can seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn;t have to be! In this course I’ll walk you through it step by step and you’ll be building your first API in MINUTES. You’ll be amazed how quick and easy it is to create very professional API's using the Django Rest Framework, even if you have no programming or web design experience at all.

Watch over my shoulder as I build a simple little API that lists some of my online courses step by step right in front of you. You’ll follow along and build your own copy. By the time we’re finished, you’ll have a solid understanding of the Django Rest Framework and how to use it to build awesome API's that will serve up any data you like.

The course contains 20 videos – and is just over 1.5 hours long. Watch the videos at your own pace, and post questions along the way if you get stuck. You don’t need any special knowledge or software to take this course, though any experience with basic Django or Python is a plus. You don’t really need to know the Python programming language, but it certainly helps!. I’ll walk you through EVERYTHING.

Django is a great web development tool and learning it has never been this easy.

What We'll Build...

We'll build an API that let's you show any sort of data that you like.  The data will be publicly accessible through your API using JSON, just like any API you've ever used before.

We'll mainly use the popular Django Rest Framework to build and server our App. You'll learn how to create a database model to hold your data, how to build a Serializer to convert the database data to and from JSON, and urls and Routes to create webpages for you API.
