Performance Tuning in Django with Ben Greene

Breaking the Speed Limit with Django QuerySets and MySQL - learn no-duh, oh-okay, and holy-moly methods to make your Django QuerySets fast.

Bio:  Ben Greene is a startup coder whose journey through Boston's startup scene - TechStars, Backupify, Boundless Learning, and most recently InsightSquared - has taken him from Ruby on Rails through Scala and now at Python and Django.  Ben doesn't claim to be an expert in much, but when it comes to squeezing performance out of the Django object layer, he's learned a thing or three that he thinks you'll find interesting

    Great talk Ben! We haven't run into anything that complex yet at plotly, but I'd love to see the code you used for your temp table query optimizer
