Django forms are really powerful but there are edge cases that can cause a bit of anguish. This talk will go over how to handle many common solutions not currently described in the core documentation. It will also cover some useful third-party libraries and will end with clarifications about what the state of form features will be in Django
- Turning non-required model fields into required form fields
- Overriding clean methods
- Overriding save method
- Calling forms the easy way in views
- Custom field definitions
- Dynamically adding fields
- Testing forms
Third Party Libraries that make your life easier
- Forms refactor in Django 1.4
- Documentation improvements
Time will be left for Q&A.
