  3. Public Chatroom
    • Build a public chatroom where any authenticated user can chat. (Django Channels & WebSockets)
  4. Private Chatroom
    • Have 1-on-1 conversations with friends. (Django Channels and WebSockets)
  5. Notifications

Target Audience

This is meant to be almost a beginner course. I expect you to have some knowledge of web development (html & css) and python. But if you know absolutely nothing you should still be able to keep up. I do everything on camera so you can just follow along and you should be fine. If you have issues I recommend becoming a member so you can join the community discord channel and ask questions.
