Intro to Django

A session at Strange Loop 2011

Sunday 18th September, 2011

3:00pm to 6:00pm (CST)

Django is a high-level web development framework designed for rapid development of database-backed web sites. This tutorial is designed to introduce developers to Django and to give a taste of how Django development usually “feels”. My main goal is to give a holistic impression of Django’s abilities and style: by the end, attendees should be able to decide if Django’s a good fit for them.

A high-level outline:

  • Introduction, philosophy, and basic terminology.
  • Models, the model API, metadata and relationships.
  • Django’s admin interface.
  • Views, URLs, and the request/response cycle.
