003 - Convert User Creation to REST API endpoint using Django Framework

Stream Our Mistakes EP 003

In this episode, we will be working creating a REST API endpoint using Django REST Framework.  This will be a multi part series as I plan to use this backend with a Xamarin Android application. No guarantees it is going to work but I will attempt it anyways. This podcast/blog isn't called stream our mistakes for nothing aye?

I looked over a few youtube videos, this blog post and the excellent Django Rest Documentation.

Since this repo is not public, here is the code snippets that are relevant to the video.
Please note: This project assumes you have already implemented Django Rest Framework in your project.

In the Serializers.py file:

Alert dialog for Xamarin Android

So it occurred to me this weekend that I have been working on a project these past couple months but haven't posted any videos. Partially, this is a private project so I won't publish the code at all. The more pressing reason is I'm really learning myself as I go so it really isn't pretty.

That being said, I considered posting some code to some of my biggest road blocks but felt that might slow down my progress. I've begun helping a friend who is new to coding and realized that it is beneficial to myself to write up and be able to share/teach those coming behind me.

I will be using the label android snippets to keep my notes in regards to this Xamarin Android application. I'll add a shortcut link in the blog soon. Here's the most recent headache I had.

I will look into possibly creating a class out of some of these snippets for myself.
