Sessions tagged with 'django'

Tobias Ivarsson (Neo Technology)
In this session you will learn how to use the Neo4j Graph Database for persistence in Django web applications. A graph database, such as Neo4j, is a database that models data as a graph data structure with focus on the relationships between entities, and each node as its own entity, rather than the structure of data records. This makes it a good fit for object oriented web frameworks like Django.
Jacob Kaplan-Moss (Revolution Systems, LLC), Frank Wiles (Revolution Systems, LLC)
So you've written a Django site... now what? Writing the application is just the beginning; now you've got to put it into production! In this hands-on workshop we'll walk through the creation of a full Django deployment environment running on a cluster of (virtual) machines.
Mike Biglan (Twenty Ideas), M Wiggins (Concentric Sky)
We were fortunate this past year to develop two of the larger Django applications out there – in the span of 12 weeks: michaelmoore.com and Santa Fe Institute's santafe.edu. Between the two, these sites have multiple layers of memcached caching, multiple web servers and database servers, integrated site search (Lucene/SOLR and Google GSA), DjangoCMS, and integrations with iCal and Alfresco.
Chander Ganesan (Open Technology Group, Inc)
The Django framework is a fast, flexible, easy to learn, and easy to use framework for designing and deploying web sites and services using Python. In this session, we'll cover the fundamentals of development with Django, generate a Django data model, and put together a simple web site using the framework.
Paul McCullough (City and County of San Francisco)
San Francisco's Street Address Management System is used by numerous agencies to edit and report on the city's geospatial street addresses. The application helps the city reduce duplicate data maintenance work, improves the accuracy, consistency, and quality of the data - and should lower the cost of delivering services to citizens.
Pinax is an open-source platform built on the Django Web Framework that dramatically reduces the time it takes to develop Web sites. By providing common components in a high-extensible framework, Pinax increases the speed at which websites can be developed and launched. Features include account management, integration with OpenID and OAuth, invitations, friendships, groups, tagging and more.
Christophe Pettus (PostgreSQL Experts, Inc.)
With support right out of the box, Django is one of the most efficient ways of deploying a PostgreSQL-backed web application. We'll discuss techniques to get maximum efficiency out of PostgreSQL using Django, including schema design tips, Django ORM techniques, transaction management, and extending PostgreSQL.
Andy McKay (Mozilla)
RapidSMS is an open source project for messaging, data collection and co-ordination over SMS. It's used throughout the world for a variety of projects, from fighting child malnutrition and malaria to monitoring elections. This talk introduces RapidSMS and covers some of the sample applications built with it.
