00:26 That way you can always be sure that the Python command points to the right version of Python and that the modules required by your project have the correct versions. To learn more about this, check out this Real Python course.
02:38 You can read more about customizing the default user model in Django’s documentation. There’s one more thing you should do for this setup. By default, Django enforces strong passwords to make user accounts less prone to attacks, but you’ll be changing passwords often during the course of this course, and figuring out a strong password each time would be inconvenient.
You can solve this issue by disabling password validators in settings. Just comment them out, leaving an empty list, as seen on-screen. Now Django will allow you to set passwords like
password or even
pass, making your work with the user management system much easier.
03:23 But remember, the validators should be left enabled in any actual application. For this course, it will also be useful to have access to the admin panel so you can track newly created users and their passwords.
