Learning Backend WebDev, Log #11 - Got a Django Certificate! Some Reflections

Been a few days since I wrote about Django. Last week was a roller coaster personally, so I took things slow. And then got back to a rhythm this week. The daily work’s paid off and I managed to hit a milestone. I got done with my Django course, today! :) Hurrah! Cert online.

I just have to do them step by step, one after another. What I learnt in Django land I like calling it Django land. Reminds me of Tarantino’s Django and Candyland. I learnt all about many to many database relationships and how they’re done with models in Django....
