Django - first project. How to prepare environment.
I like to search inspiration in other technologies. My last research was about speed and app performance. One of “fast” languages is Python. I heard about this language when I was a beginer in IT and wished to learn some programming language. This one was an example of languages ‘good to learn programming’. Today its language used in apps like youtube, blogger and google.com.
