The robust websites and apps produced using Django suggest a much more complicated framework than is used. In this course, you'll build on your existing Django knowledge to perform some Django template language operations. You'll start this course by performing various query operations on your Django model instances from the Python shell. You'll also use the Django admin website to work with your models. You'll implement class-based views in Django, first using the ListView class to view multiple instances of a model before using the DetailView class to view individual records. Moving along, you'll use CreateView and UpdateView to generate and modify instances and implement a DeleteView for their easy removal. You'll round off this course by briefly exploring how to improve the aesthetics of your class-based views by incorporating HTML elements, such as tables, in their corresponding templates.
