Hello all --

We thought it would be fun to do a front-end / template series of talks, since we don't discuss these things enough.

We need volunteers. Below are some suggestions or feel free to suggest your own. If you are not an expert, that's okay. Either are we. I am hoping you will refine your skills in the process of putting together your talk, and then you come and teach us. 


Here are some suggestions that I came up with:

  • Walk through of how django templates work
  • How to replace the django templating engine & what are the pros & cons
  • What a designer needs from you, when the designer is using django templates
  • Django and backbone.js
  • Best front-end practices with respect to Django
  • Django template organization when dealing with a mess of projects
  • How and when to use custom template tags and context variables


The length of time you commit to is up to you. Some of these topics can be 40 minutes, some 20, or maybe you just want to share a tip with us and do lightening talk. All of these work. Just let me know what time length you.
