0:17 The subcommand I used here was start app and primer is the name of the app. Let me run tree again. Ok lots of stuff has happened here.
0:28 First off notice that a bunch of .pyc files have shown up running the managed
0:32 py command earlier has caused several of the files in the inner Alexandria directory to get imported. So they've been compiled

0:49 When I ran the development server to show you the rocketship picture. This file got created.
0:56 The newly created Django app is named Primer and a directory with that name has been created.
