Ya they need really to update Django. 2.0 was released in 2017, they should at least mention it in all those tutorials. Love TreeHouse but they are kind of slacking in the Django department.

Dylan Thunn is correct-- there are definitely some differences in Django 2.x and if you are creating a new project from scratch, I would totally recommend doing it in Django 2.x. There is still quite a bit of utility in learning Django 1.x (1.9 is installed in Workspaces) and Django LTS (long-term-support) version is 1.11. Since most new Django developers first job opportunity will be maintaining existing code, it is a good experience to be familiar with LTS versions.
