Before we start building, let’s take a sneak peek at the app that you’ll build in this section so that you know where you’re headed!
In your finished project, you’re going to start up the server and reload your page. You’ll have a projects index page that holds all of the projects you have in your database, and you’ll be able to click a Read More button to get more information about each project.

I’m just running through this course and I’m am finding it fantastic. It’s my first time using a framework and it’s all a bit weird. I’m sure it will pay off though.
I have a couple of nagging fears that you may be able to address:
Ultimately I want to be able to put a python based website “on the web”, not just run it locally. It concerns me that I need to run “python manage.py runserver” repeatedly from terminal to make it work locally. Is this also the case when it is “on the web”? or is an online virtual environment and server permanently activated and running? is the runserver command specific to a local Django webserver?
Does Django make “publishing” the project simple, OR do you need to ftp all the files and structure manually AND/OR do you need to build the venv again on the web host?
I’m just a bit nervous!! … onto Part 4
