This is the basic outline, based on revised content from a previous talk and a new “forms” section:Introduction
If people have their own laptops with Django installed, they should be able to follow along with the tutorial as it goes. I won’t, however, be allowing time to write code, nor will I spend time helping attendees install Django. The complete code for the tutorial will be available so that attendees can hack and tweak as we go. In the past about half the audience has done so; the other half simply took notes or fooled around with their own projects.
Jacob Kaplan-Moss is one of the lead developers of Django. At his day job, he’s the lead developer for the Lawrence Journal-World, a locally-owned newspaper in Lawrence, KS where Django was developed. At the Journal-World, Jacob oversees development of Ellington, an online news publishing platforms for media companies.
