Answer

That tutorial requires Django 1.10 while you seem to be using an older version. In this case, you should import reverse as follows:

from django.core.urlresolvers import reverse

To upgrade your Django version, use the following command (in your command line, not in the Python shell):

pip install --upgrade django
