Django is one of the longest running open source web frameworks but despite this it is still one of the best around and continues to be actively developed.

Approaching such software can be intimidating to a novice developer as well as an experienced one because it is the result of over 15 years of excellent developers work and it would take a long time to get to know it thoroughly.

In this talk we will see together the way I found for anyone to take full advantage of Django while contributing to its success and that of its community.
