Hello Web App is a 150 page book that teaches readers to program web applications using Python and Django basics. Behind the project is west coast-based startup founder Tracy Osborn, who taught herself to code five years ago when she had an idea for a new web application. That idea is now her successful startup WeddingLovely.

Jacob Kaplan-Moss, a core contributor to the Django programming language says, "This is one of the best tutorials I've seen. It's really hands-on, it's very actionable, it's extremely well written, and it looks gorgeous. This book is my go-to pick for when people ask what's the best way to learn Django."
