Django and the Real-time Web

A session at DjangoCon Europe 2012

Monday 4th June, 2012

2:10pm to 3:05pm (CET)

The modern Web—indeed, the modern user—demands that we write applications that work faster than the traditional request/response cycle. But how relevant is Django in the age of pjax, node.js and WebSockets? I believe Django remains a powerful utility in the new Web, and in this talk I'll share some techniques and tools for reducing the complexity of real-time applications. I'll explain how I manage code duplication when key business logic is split between the client and the server, and demonstrate ways to preserve a RESTful and accessible design whilst providing a more responsive experience to clients who support it. Technologies I'll touch upon include ZeroMQ, gevent and WebSockets, and I hope to leave everyone from beginner to veteran with some valuable insights.
