If people have their own laptops with Django installed, they’ll be able to follow along with the tutorial as it goes. I won’t, however, be able to spend time helping attendees install Django—that can just take forever. 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 and co-creator of Django. Jacob’s an experienced software developer with a focus on web application architecture.
