The Python web application framework Django includes PostgreSQL support right out of the box, and has become one of most popular ways of deploying a PostgreSQL-backed web application. As with all powerful tools, naive use of PostgreSQL in Django can produce less-than-spectacular results.

This talk will discuss (through both positive and negative examples) the best way of getting the most out of PostgreSQL through Django. Topics will include:

  • Schema design patterns for Django.
  • ORM techniques for maximum database performance.
  • Transaction management, including techniques specific to PostgreSQL.
  • Extending PostgreSQL, and exploiting those extensions in Django.
