With the Internet becoming available and affordable to more people, the number of Internet users among older generations is rapidly growing. However, most websites on the web are confusing to this age group, due to lack of experience, as well as disabilities coming with age. The purpose of this project is to create an easy to use, self-explanatory web application, taking into account this specific target group. It is a platform where one can discuss various books. The online book club can substitute a traditional book club by ignoring the time and geographic limitations. The process of the creation of this application included exploring a new web framework, Django, which is one of the trends in web application development.
