    I loved the course, you did an amazing job explaining everything in details and was very easy to follow. I wish you could had included more stuff, such as email, regular registration/login without facebook,] and five star ratings for the reviews. Overall this is a great tutorial and can't wait to see what else you will teach in Django/Python.

    Unlike many other tutorials online, this course makes it very clear why certain Django principles are useful. You are not just learning Django randomly, but rather Leo does an excellent job introducing the principles at the right time. You start with an end goal in mind (ie. a Fiverr-like website) and it allows you to not only the HOW but the WHY.

    This is the most effective course to learn how Python and Django work as long as I know. I had almost none prior experiences with Python and Django, but this 6 hours course gives me a good understanding of how it works by cloning Fiverr. I definitely recommend you to take this course:)
