Build and launch a website on Wagtail, in three hours!

Sunday 1:30pm, Audobon

About This Tutorial

This tutorial will be relevant to anyone who wants to build a content-managed website using Django. It will cover

  • developer environment (just bring a laptop)
  • installation
  • how to structure your site
  • creating and editing content (text, images, videos)
  • simple theming
  • adding users
  • making your site live on the web
  • buying and configuring a domain name

By the end of the session you’ll have a working site, running the latest version of Wagtail. You can decide to use it as a disposable learning project or as the start of your new website. We’ll use a collaborative, online developer environment - just bring your laptop!
