Django REST framework is a new project that aims to make it easy to build RESTful Web APIs.
The APIs it creates are fully Web browse-able, using an awesome Django admin style interface, allowing them to be truly self-describing, well-connected systems.
The talk will include:
Mobile apps are the hot item of the day -- and the best mobile apps are backed by a great website. Python web developer Nate Aune and iPhone developer Anna Callahan will show you how we built a simple music web app in Django with a native iPhone app that communicates with it. Attendees of this talk will see a concrete case study of building an application that exposes an API for mobile devices.
Our web app exposes a JSON API for sending and receiving data from the mobile device. We’ll talk about why we chose Django and the TastyPie API package, and discuss other Python-based frameworks that could be used to build the API such as Pyramid, Flask and Bottle. We’ll also compare REST and custom APIs to understand best practices for building APIs designed for mobile devices.
