Tastypie: a webservice API framework for Django

Want a convenient, yet powerful and customizable abstraction for creating REST-style interfaces within Django? Your two best options are Tastypie and Django REST framework. In this talk, Rudy Mutter will help you get started with Tastypie with a basic tutorial and demo. He will also walk through key parts of the source code to explain its inner workings. We welcome anyone from the audience to contrast and compare the main alternative, the Django REST framework.

Following this presentation, we'll take turns showing off an app we're working on (max of 3 presentations, 5-10 minutes each), directing attention to code in the app you think might be of special interest to a roomful of Django developers.

As usual, use remaining time to work on your project, give and get help over the shoulders of others for anything related to Django, including Python, CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Django apps, deployment, etc. Accelerate your learning, hone your Django skills, and/or get to know other East Bay Django Developers.

Beginners welcome - but keep in mind this meetup is targeted at intermediate to advanced Django developers (though advanced beginners are likely to understand some of it). You'll get much more out of the group if you've installed Python and Django, and completed at least parts I and II of the official Django tutorial, started the Django Book, or had some other form of exposure to Django. To get started with Django, first learn Python:

http://learnpythonthehardway.org/

And then Django:

https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.4/ (do the tutorial)

http://gettingstartedwithdjango.com/ (1st 2 lessons great way to learn Django 1.4 or 1.5)

Tech Liminal charges $5 per attendee for use of the space. They are located a few blocks from Oakland 12th St. BART.

    Is there any good django-tastypie tutorial in which API creation is shown using examples?

    • Rudy M.

      The tastypie docs tutorial is a good place to start: http://django-tastypi...­. They use the blog and post example, which is in lines with the Django Book.

    Record attendance for an East Bay event as 30 people showed up out of the 51 that signed up. Rudy did a good job on Tastypie, targeting intermediate Django developers.

    Hey all, I'm heading out from Walnut Creek. I'm wondering: is there parking near the building that I can use? Or should I take the bart?

    July 9, 2013

    • Rudy M.

      I've driven there before, plenty of metered parking was available. Bart also gets off a block away too.
