I think you have to call localhost:8000/admin and log in as user "admin" and password "admin". If you take a look into the classes CollectionCreate or CollectionUpdate inside views.py then you can see that the created_by field is always set to the user who executed the request. And the variable request.user is only set, if a user is logged in.
Hope that will help you to get the demo running ;-)
