DjangoCon AU is the first gathering of Django developers in Australia.
DjangoCon AU is being held as a one day mini-conference at the start of PyCon AU. DjangoCon AU content will be Django specific, but there will also be useful Django-related content in the main PyCon program. There will also be Django developers at the sprints held after PyCon.
Wrest Point Hotel and Casino,
Websites are becoming more complex. In the 20 years since the <img> tag was proposed, the web has gone from entirely static content to replacing desktop applications wholesale. In that same span languages have risen and fallen, and in the mid-2000s a new breed of frameworks rose to meet the mounting challenge, chief among them (for our purposes anyways): Django.
This talk will review how the web has changed since Django was created, and how the challenges of writing a modern web application have changed.
Some people say micro-frameworks like pyramid are too small. Some people say CMS's like Plone are too big. Some people say django is juuuust right. They are all wrong.
Come to this talk to find out the other hammers in the world, when you might use them, where I've used them to solve some hard problems and some of the clever ideas behind these technologies demystified.
Django 1.5 now supports Python 3, so now's the time to start thinking about porting your apps and sites. Come see how! I'll talk about the porting techniques that work, and present two case studies: porting a site, and porting a reusable app.
Site editors often struggle with editing rich content and managing variations in layout in Django admin. By rich content we mean text, images, video, tables, and so on. Trying to squeeze all this content into a single rich-text editor is like trying to jam a magical pony into a dog kennel. A better approach is to use a rich content framework like FeinCMS.
A compilation of outstanding tips, tricks and tools for meeting perfectionist's deadlines with even greater elegance and efficiency.
Django ship with a wide range of tools to help you test your web application, but some of the best tools for testing Django don't come in the box. In this talk, you'll get a brief introduction to two of those tools - Mock and Factory Boy - showing when they should be used, and some practical examples of their usage in a Django test suite.
Make the system lightning fast and infinitely scalable; ensure its absolute security and impregnability; and guarantee its absolute correctness, stability, and general perfection in the face of all input at all times.
In the Django world there are currently two major REST API libraries, with a new one starting to take hold. But how do you choose? In this talk I plan to give details on how these three apps (TastyPie, Django REST Framework, and django-nap) differ, as well as overlap.
