Astro Code School Announces 12 Week Python and Django Web Engineering Class

Document Actions
A newly licensed code school in Durham for Python web engineering has opened.

Astro Code School, sponsored by TriPython supporter Caktus Group in Durham, has announces its first Python and Django Web Engineering class. This class is twelve weeks long and full time Monday to Friday from 9 AM – 5 PM. Astro Code School will conduct two Python and Django Web Engineering classes in 2015. The first one in term two starts May 18, 2015 and ends August 10, 2015. The second one in term three starts September 22, 2015 and ends December 15, 2015.

Enrollment for both sections opens today March 20. There is space for twelve students in each class. More information about the enrollment process is on our Apply page. Part of that process is an entrance exam that is designed to ensure you're ready to succeed. The price per person for Python and Django Web Engineering is $12,000.

The Python and Django Web Engineering class is intended for intermediate level students. Its goal is to help you start your career as a back-end web engineer. To start down this path we recommend you prepare yourself. A few things you can do are: read some books on Python & Django, complete the Django Girls tutorial, watch videos on Youtube, and take an online class or two in Python.

Python and Django make a powerful team to build maintainable web applications quickly. When you take this course you will build your own web application during lab time with assistance from your teacher and professional Django developers. You’ll also receive help preparing your portfolio and resume to find a job using the skills you’ve learned.

Here's the syllabus:

  • Python Basics, Git & GitHub, Unit Testing
  • Object Oriented Programming, Functional Programming, Development Process, Command Line
  • HTML, HTTP, CSS, LESS, JavaScript, DOM
  • Portfolio Development, Intro to Django, Routing, Views, Templates
  • SQL, Models, Migrations, Forms, Debugging

This comprehensive course is taught by experienced developer and trained teacher Caleb Smith. He's been working full time at Caktus Consulting Group, the founders of Astro Code School and the nation’s largest Django firm. Caleb has worked on many client projects over the years. He’s also applied his experience as a former public school teacher to teach Girl Develop It Python classes and as an adjunct lecturer at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.

Astro Code School is licensed by the State of North Carolina as a proprietary school.
