EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend'

The step you provided involves configuring the email backend in Django.

EMAIL_BACKEND is a setting in Django that specifies the backend to use for sending emails. In this case, 'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend' is set as the value for EMAIL_BACKEND.

The 'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend' is a built-in email backend provided by Django. It doesn't send actual emails but instead writes the email content to the console or terminal for debugging and testing purposes.

By using this backend, any emails sent from your Django application will not be delivered to the recipients' inbox but will be displayed in the console output, allowing you to see the email content and verify that it is being generated correctly. This is useful during development or when testing email functionality in your application.

To summarize, this configuration step sets the email backend in Django to 'django.core.mail.backends.console.EmailBackend', which writes email content to the console for debugging and testing purposes.
