Getting started with Python and the Django Framework part 1

So over the christmas holidays ive been keeping myself busy by learning more about the Python language.

Having learnt a few basics i started to try the Django framework which ive seen mentioned quite a lot.  Im reffering to windows mainly in this case see below for more detailed instructions;

Step 1:
Install python from the site below and install the necessary version for your Operating system.

Step 2:
Once you get that installed, verify that python is installed by typing “python” from the windows command prompt;







Step 3:
Install Django framework via command prompt;

pip install django

Step 4:
Create your first project its best to refer to the offical document and tutorials at;

Creating a project

If this is your first time using Django, you’ll have to take care of some initial setup. Namely, you’ll need to auto-generate some code that establishes a Django project – a collection of settings for an instance of Django, including database configuration, Django-specific options and application-specific settings.

From the command line, cd into a directory where you’d like to store your code, then run the following command:

This will create a mysite directory in your current directory. If it didn’t work, see Problems running django-admin.

Wow: Building a Rogue

I first started WOTLK with the aim of changing classes from warlock to rogue. I started leveling my rogue first and got my first and last raid in Naxx 25. I was last on the DPS meters and packed it in, not just the rogue class but raiding and the lock class and i quit wow for a few months. Then i played on another realm with my priest when dual spec hit and was both a Damage maker and healer in a small casual guild. It was good fun but after a while the guild fell apart after people started to leave to join better raid guilds and then i quit wow for about a year.

Since i returned in december Blizzard (account got hacked stuff returned) have done alot to make gearing up a bit easier (i must note specially for casualy players like myself).

From the weekly raid and daily random dungeon you can collect badges if your dedicated enough.  Recently i took the task on of trying to gear up my rogue and its not been easy.

Starting out is the worst and seeing your damage at the bottom of the damage meter is at times very humiliating and very off-putting. So to avoid this i went the PVP route and used all my Stone shards to buy PVP gear so i eventually had the full PVP set. Of course this isnt much good for Dungeons but it was a good start.  I then started random heroics and have had no hassle from anyone about my damage even though it wasnt good or at least didnt look like it was right for the gear i had.

I started out as subtlety spec as i only used to PVP with my rogue and well my DPS was rubbish

Im still working on on it and well as they say, things can only get better.

Here are some of the great guides ive found and been reading as i try to  improve my rogue. My goal here to try and get DPS to where it should for the gear i have.
