Distributing Django apps with standard Python packaging tools has for a long time been dreaded by the community for good reasons -- from bad documentation and confusing conventions to missing integration with Django standards and unreliable infrastructure.
In this talk I show what is being done to fix that and how you can profit from it:
PyPy is the fastest Python available. Django is a classy web framework for folks who want to get stuff done. Learn about how to leverage PyPy to get more performance out of your webapps, with little work on your part.
Building sites which adapt gracefully to different screen sizes is no longer a domain reserved for crazy web experiments. With a suitable structure, you can provide multiple layouts targeted at different screen sizes for relatively little additional effort. Learn about the “why” of responsive design, how it works, and implementation strategies for your Django webapps.
Previous knowledge of Compass and the Less Framework are helpful—but not required.
