Django: How to Install and Run Your First Web App

Friends, we all have ideas for apps. Everyone that I’ve talked to, whether they’re interested in technology or not, has had some kind of idea for something that their phone and computer could do better, something to make their lives that much easier. Yet, getting started can be tremendously intimidating. How can we actually make it happen? Do we need degrees? Years of study? A natural gift?

I think the answer is no. Applications are can be complex and vary widely in functionality, but the fundamentals are the same. This is true whether you’re building for mobile phones, web, or even desktop.

Today, we’ll take the first step to bringing your stunning app idea to life. We’ll be working with Django, which is a Python framework used to make web apps that are fast, secure, and maintainable.

How to Implement Quicksort – Essential Sorting Algorithms in Python

In this video, we learn the ins and outs of Quicksort, a sorting algorithm that will come in handy in many situations. We go over theory, and then visualize the entire sorting process from start to finish.

We cover the quicksort method in general, as well as two partition schemes: Lomuto and Hoare methods. Lomuto is simpler, but the Hoare method, named for Quicksort’s inventor, C.A.R. Hoare, is more efficient. \

How to Implement a Binary Search Tree in Python

Decisions, decisions… Life is all about choices! Usually there are so many ways to go. An infinite expanse of roads and pathways stretches in front of you, an endless gradient of details; as you consider them, your head starts to spin, your eyes start to droop, your mind races, your head pounds –

Wait a second. There’s no need to stress. Since we’re talking about Binary Search Trees, decisions are going to be a lot easier. A Binary Search Tree (BST) gives you two choices: left or right, less than or greater than, 0 or 1 – hence the name, binary.

How to Implement a Queue From Scratch Using Python

You may hate the line at the DMV, but without it, things might turn into a rough-and-tumble free for all! In the same way that a line keeps raging motorists from getting out of hand, a Queue helps your computer keep its ducks in a row. The Queue functions very much like a line of people. It’s a First-In, First-Out (FIFO) data structure, so no cutting!
