Not going to PyCon but want a piece of the action? Have you dabbled with Django, or are you interested in learning more? New Relic, our gracious hosts and pioneers of app-performance software, have offered to do a 'dry-run' of the tutorial they will be offering at this year's PyCon with PyLadies! The tutorial is geared towards beginner-intermediate developers, however all are welcome.
Details, courtesy of Belinda:
"The objective of the tutorial is to teach you how to identify common performance issues by using New Relic on a Django application.
The tutorial will walk you through the steps of
- git cloning a demo app repo
- setting up virtualenv
- setting up the demo app
- installing New Relic's Python agent
- using New Relic to identify app performance issues using:
- real-user monitoring
- web transaction traces
- slow SQL reporting
- SQL Explain Plans
- error reporting
- thread profiling
Our goal is to go through a run of the tutorial and get feedback from you, as well as identify any areas of friction with your learning experience."
This should be a fun and informative experience for all of us, and we hope to see you there!
