Django 1.7 And You

  • Apr 30, 2014 · 6:15 PM

Important! We're using Eventbrite for this meetup event. In order to make sure we can get as many people in as possible and help speed up the checkin process please register here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/django-17-and-you-tickets-11126815605


Topic:

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's Bio:

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.

    In case you want to support dynamic inline expansion in your REST API and you use django rest framework, here's the code from the lightning talk - https://github.com/venkat/DRFInlineExpansion

    The meetup was very well organized, and the lightening talks and main talk were very interesting.

    I am interested in the new migration framework in Django 1.7 (django.db.migrations). During the talk, Andrew mentioned that the easiest way to convert South migrations to django.db.migrations. Is to delete the old South migrations and write the migration using the new django.db.migrations API.

    The Django documentation goes into more depth, but basically reinforces what Andrew mentioned:

    https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/topics/migrations/#upgrading-from-south

    Does anyone have experience with such an upgrade?
    I work on FreeNAS ( http://www.freenas.org ) which has a Django UI, and while some of the existing South migrations were auto-generated, some of the migrations are hand-written, so I'm not so confident that just deleting the old stuff and running:

    python manage.py makemigrations
    python manage.py migrate

    will "just work" for the hand-coded migrations.

      Well maybe it will work, but I'm just a scaredy cat. :)

      If anyone has experience with this, please let me know.

      This is fantastic stuff for Django, and I'm eager to use it!

    Unfortunately I've been turned away at the door because they don't allow bikes (yelp used to have bike storage for guests, but evidently not anymore) hope someone can use my spot.

    What's with having to register on eventbrite? Why not have registration be only on meetup.com?

    - grumbles from a person who signed up here a month ago but didn't see the eventbrite link

    • Jen L.

      meetup.com does not require first and last names. Some locations, speakers, sponsors, and group managers need to have advance attendee lists with full names. Sometimes this is to vett the list for security reasons. Sometimes it's to ensure that registrants are properly identified when they arrive. If someone only registers with their first name and their first name is common, anyone with the same first name would be able to take their registered spot.

      Hmm, I rsvp'd long ago but the tickets page at eventbrite doesn't show the waiting ticket - just offers to add myself to the waitlist (which I went ahead and did). Not sure whether to depart from the east bay or not and need to leave soon. Frustrating.

      April 30, 2014

  • Mark C.

    I just cancelled my eventbrite ticket. Hopefully the next person on waitlist will get in!

    Opened a seat.

    i tried emailing rudy to return my eventbrite ticket, but haven't had a response, someone can have mine if they need it.

      I'll be releasing it tonight!

      April 28, 2014

  • Jose R.

    Oops just noticed that as soon as the meetup was posted i rsvp when i read the heading django 1.7 but i didn't read the smaller print about rsvp with evertbrite. My bad - i should have read the small print :-(... not sure if there is a way to attend or waiting list?

    April 22, 2014

    • Rudy M.

      Waitlist is now up on Eventbrite!

      April 23, 2014

    • Jose R.

    Eventbrite is soldout. Does that mean tough luck for anyone else wishing to attend the event?

    April 22, 2014

    • Rudy M.

      Hi Kevin, the waitlist is now activated on Eventbrite. Likely people will be canceling their tickets to free up room for people who can go.

    I can't make it tonight due to illness. I'll forward my Eventbrite ticket to the first person who responds with their email address - no idea if they'll be checking IDs, though.

      Oops - sorry about that. I accidentally put it on my calendar for tonight. Sorry Ahmed.

  • Roopesh V.

    I didn't see the eventbrite rsvp. Any more room wiggle room?

    April 22, 2014

    • Rudy M.

      Join the waitlist on Eventbrite to hopefully snag a ticket when someone cancels theirs.

    Href for the eventbrite links are bad. Copy and paste wins. :)

    The eventbrite links seem to point to the wrong event (the text is right, but the href is wrong) - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/django-17-and-you-tickets-11126815605
