This work log follows on the tasks performed in the previous article, First Licks of Two Scoops of Django. Consider skimming it first to see from where we are picking up.

The aim for this document is to show you (and remind the future me (( One note of preface: I’m not 100% certain which folder level you need to be in to perform some of the shell commands. ))) how to jumpstart Django without having to go through the first couple chapters of Two Scoops each and every time.

I’m Jonathan. Welcome to my dossier.
- I’m a co-founder of Dimples. We have a great team.
- I teach at Saint Francis University. We have great students.
- Feel free to get in touch.
