Django 1.7 is one of the biggest releases in recent years for Django; several major new features, innumerable smaller improvements, and some big changes to parts of Django that have lain unchanged since before version 1.0. Come and learn about new app loading, system checks, customised select_related, custom lookups, and, of course, migrations. We'll cover both the advantages these new features bring as well as the issues you might have when upgrading from 1.6 or below.
Andrew is a Django core developer, the author of South and the new django.db.migrations framework, and currently works for Eventbrite as a Senior Software Engineer, working on system architecture. He's been using Django since 2007, and has worked on far too many Django websites at this point. In his spare time, he also enjoys flying planes, archery, and cheese.
