Event Details

Pro Series - Web Framework Django/python workshop
By Allen Tuggle
Pizza sponsored by TEK Systems

Class Summary:
In this Pro-Series 2-hour workshop we will go over the basics of building a web app using python and the Django framework. Django is a free and open-source web framework, written in Python, which follows the model–view–controller (MVC) architectural pattern. It is maintained by the Django Software Foundation (DSF), an independent organization established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit.

Django's primary goal is to ease the creation of complex, database-driven websites. Django emphasizes reusability and "pluggability" of components, rapid development, and the principle of don't repeat yourself. Python  is used throughout, even for settings, files, and data models. Django also provides an optional administrative create, read, update and delete interface that is generated dynamically through introspection and configured via admin models.

Workshop Requirements:

  • At least junior-level developer coding experience (professional/CS student, etc)
  • Basic understanding of Web Development
  • One RSVP Ticket ($10) per participant
  • Must bring laptop with power supply (Windows, Linux or Mac-OSX)
  • Python experience preferred but not required
  • We're using CodeAnywhere.com on-line IDE
