Personally, I used Python Crash Course by Eric Matthes as a guide. It was the book that initially got me into coding and I seriously cannot say enough good things about it. One day I remembered there was a unit in it about Django (during my initial readthrough I stopped at the data section) so I went back and went through it. It went over the basics (including user authentication) and pretty much caught me up to speed with what I needed/wanted to know. From there it was really easy to just search online for any missing information that I needed. Highly recommend the book if you're not super familiar with Python. If you are, the standard web-docs are great.
