Create websites with a custom content management system from scratch using Python and the Django framework, so that your clients can control their own content.
Available February 2021
What you'll learn
As creative people who code, we may have to hand over our sites over to people who don’t code and have no intention to start learning. We may want to hand access over to a client, a co-worker or a family member, for them to add, edit and delete their own content.
In this course, we’ll use Python with the Django framework to create websites with updatable and flexible content management systems that we control, along with admin panels to make it easier for others to change things.
A computer (Windows, Mac or Linux) with the latest version of Chrome installed and a broadband internet connection. That’s it!

Resources to get you started and going post-course
In the first part of the course, we’ll take a simple, landing-page style website where our client wants to have a simple page of all their work but make all of the content completely dynamic so that they can add to it whenever they have new work.
One of the great things about having a content management system is that it lets us add in as many pages as we want without having to add any more code. In this project, we’ll go deeper into making more complex layouts for our clients.
Of course, our clients may not just want one area of the site to be changeable. They may want other areas such as a Journal blog-style area, an events list, or a team roster to be updatable too!

Yes, we do! All you'd need to do is send the links to your completed projects over to [email protected] at the end of your course. We will review them, provide feedback if necessary, and then issue your certificate!
If you're comfortable working with a computer, then yes!
Learning new and improving your existing skills is about being patient with yourself, building up your knowledge, developing confidence through practice, and with time. We've seen our students around the world do it, and so can you.
Our beginner courses are designed for people new to the subjects. They grow your understanding so you grasp everything you need to start applying your new skills and will also give you a path to dig deeper if you want.
Our teaching style is practical and straightforward and you'll have support from our expert instructors and community for as long as you need.
All our course videos are taught using the SuperHi Editor, but you'll be able to apply everything you'll learn to a code editor of your choice. Many students go on to use other code editors, for example, if their workplace has an existing standard.
Our SuperHi Editor is designed with many smart features to help avoid wasted time looking for things like a typo or missing bracket (which is why we made it!), but the same code concepts apply to any editor.
Yea! After the course is over, you'll still have our support when it comes to things like career questions, resume, and portfolio reviews, etc. all to help you get the job and career you want.
We also provide 1:1 sessions for some of our courses! The number of sessions depends on the course that you signed up for.
If you'd like to arrange a 1:1 session after you've completed your course, email us at [email protected] and we'll happily arrange that for you!
Yes! You can use your own custom third-party domains and connect them to your sites built with our SuperHi Editor. Additionally, all SuperHi sites come with free SSL Certificates for added protection.
Here's more information on how to connect a third-party domain
The proof is in the pudding. Our students go on to make their own beautiful sites and some of their stunning work have won digital design awards.
If you're a SuperHi student or alumni and would like to submit your project to be included in our Hall of Fame, please feel free to submit here.
We have quite a lot of students that join us and have done some coding before but want to build up confidence and techniques.
