Intro to Django

  • Apr 26, 2014 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Join PyLadies for an all day introductory Django workshop at Spotify San Francisco! 

Throughout the course of this hands-on workshop we will cover the basics of the Django web framework as we build a basic web application. Python beginners welcome and encouraged to attend!

NOTE: Men may attend as the +1 of a woman attendee.

9:00am - Optional: early birds for those who need help installing/setting up
10:00am - Doors open with coffee & breakfast
10:30am - Workshop begins
4:30pm-ish - Wrap up of workshop
4:30pm-5pm-ish - Lightning talks - open to all attendees! Show off your Django app, what you learned, or anything that can fit into 5 minutes!
5:30pm - Happy hour/socializing/networking at a nearby bar (location to be announced)

Requirements: Just bring your computer and power cord, and you're ready to go! This workshop is geared towards folks who have at least some experience with an object oriented scripting language like Ruby or Python. The workshop *will not* cover Python basics.  If you would like to brush up/learn the basics for this course, we recommend you work through Learn Python the Hard Way.

Workshop prep: Students should follow the steps outlined here

About the host: Sandy Strong is a Site Reliability engineer at Twitter in San Francisco, and is one of the original PyLadies of Los Angeles.

A *huge* thank you to Spotify for hosting PyLadies SF!

    Please open my spot for someone else. I'm on a deadline and can't make it after all. I do appreciate the reference to the official Django tutorial and will follow up with that when my schedule eases up.

      I always sign up and get waitlisted, are males not allowed?

    Noting the long wait-list, I'm sure the next-in-line can fill my spot? Unfortunately, I just had to cancel.

    Guess we only need to install Django as prep for this session?

    • Una S.

      Only this page, right > we don't have to proceed "writing 1st app"?

    Will we be going through the official django tutorial or doing something else?
