Django Riffs, a podcast for learning Django

Hello, Djangonauts!

The world needs more Django, IMHO, so I decided to create a podcast! This new podcast, Django Riffs, is aimed at beginners to help them learn how to use Django.

I plan to release a new episode every couple of weeks and explore one facet of Django at a time.

I’d love to hear your feedback since I want this podcast to serve the community and help new users understand Django, the framework that many of know and love.

There are more details in an announcement post that I wrote on mattlayman.com.

Thanks for reading!

I see your latest release was January 31st! I’d love to see new episodes going up!

I’m working on it! It takes time since I’m researching and deciding how much to present. Thanks for the encouragement!

You can probably expect 1 to 2 episodes per month.

Fantastic! I’ve subscribed to the podcast so I look forward to seeing new stuff when you’ve made more! Good work man!

There needs to be more Django podcasts so will definitely try and help give feedback!

Thanks! I appreciate that.

After listening to your three episodes during my time off I wanted to provide some feedback of what I liked and would love to see more of to hopefully help
you produce more content.

Things I Liked/Learnt

  • Single Topic style is perfect
  • Ordering Path mattered
  • Namespaces very useful to know!

Possibly Add

  • Interactive show notes to help retention?
  • Polls to see what areas for further episodes
  • Would be great to build a small project with the targeted episodes to get a sense of whole life-cycle.

I also am still relatively very new to Django and find the overwhelming amount of options and configurations possible with the framework somewhat daunting to
start somewhere. It would be a great benefit for myself with a sort of Roadmap of what the optimum path to learn Django (As I’m guilty of skipping sections where I shoot myself in the foot later).

Hope this helps and looking forward to more episodes!

Thank you for the feedback. I have a rough roadmap outlined defined in my GitHub project for my personal website, but I could certainly put things together into a roadmap on my website that people could follow. I’m not sure if I’ll follow that set on GitHub in order exactly, but a basic roadmap would be better than nothing!

As time goes on and more of an audience builds up, I’ll definitely reach out with polls. This will be especially helpful as I get to the end of my planned episodes.

Thanks again!
