Hi Vancouver Djangonauts!

Thanks to everyone who attended the November Django Vancouver meetup tonight.

Super special thanks to:


  • Sonia and Eric from A Thinking Ape for hosting the meetup
  • Justin Johnson of Tiipz for providing pizza and beer

Here's a quick recap of the topics discussed:


  • Ian discussed a bug in Django running on MySQL where a race condition can occur when multiple threads call get_or_create.
  • Justin demoed the Tiipz concept built on Django, and asked the group about best practices for authentication and authorization when building a REST API to power an AJAX application.
  • Yaron demoed the CrowdFanatic platform built on Django, and expressed that CrowdFanatic is currently looking to hire more Django developers.
  • Juan presented an Django developer employment opportunity currently open at the UBC Faculty of Medicine.
  • Bryan demoed an AJAX web app backed by Django and Tastypie.
  • Colin presented an example Stripe app for Django, and asked the group about best practices for constructing example Django apps.
  • Mark discussed a Django database sharding technique he recently created.
  • Keven demoed StackRocket, a virtual development platform that supports Django.
  • John discussed some simple ways to secure a production Django app against malicious attacks.

Thanks again to all who came out. Our next meetup will be in the first week of December, stay tuned for the official announcement.

Cheers,

Bryan
