Test-Driven Web Development with Python/Django

This is the seventh in our series of Python workshops for the PythonSD and SD-PyLadies communities. We're planning to have an introduction to Django through test-driven development. We strongly encourage you to go through the Django tutorials before attending if you have not already.

This will be a free event, thanks to our sponsors.

Thanks to our sponsors from the Python Software Foundation's Outreach & Education Committee!


We're still working on the content for this. Please plan to bring your laptop to write some code at the event.

    Working code for the workshop and the reStructuredText files for the tutorials can be found on Github: . If you have suggestions or you find issues with the tutorials, feel free to open an issue or a pull request. We'd like to improve and extend this tutorial for a future Django TDD workshop. Thanks everyone who came to the workshop for helping us improve the tutorial on-the-fly.

    Loved the format. Lectures are only good for an hour or so... much better use of a day without resorting to a true "class".

    Definitely a big thanks for Saturday. I know I have a hard time making Thursday evenings... I'm so glad to finally be able to catch one of these weekend Django days.

    Kudos on all the organization and prep work you all did ahead of this Django day. I was equally impressed by the use of read-the-docs, git and the other tools you used to bring this together.

    For the few meet ups I've been able to attend, it does seem like there are quite a few of us aspiring to get better at python (django or other parts). What if these workshops were followed up with fake mini (or not so mini) projects we could tackle collectively online? I'm not a programmer by trade but I'd love to have a real place to learn git, to collaborate with others and program in a style where I'd have to consume other's code and write mine in a way were others would consume mine. This could extend (or reinforce) Django, learn git, documentation, take a stab at PEP8...

    Not trying to make work for anyone. Just an idea.

    Thanks for a great workshop. Several of us were talking after the event about having an informal meetup on Tuesday evenings (7-9pm) at The Living Room Coffeehouse in La Jolla. Just a casual time to practice your new Django skills with others, ask questions, share projects or socialize. Zach and I will be there this Tuesday to greet you. Hope to see you there.

      Hi paul, that's mine! I hadn't even realized I left it there, good looking out. Will you shoot me an email ([masked]) and I can arrange to come grab it. Thanks!

    Thanks a lot, that was a very helpful and fun workshop!

    I thought it went really well. I was able to concentrate on working through the material rather than worrying that I was falling behind a presenter. Though I did feel that I was doing too much copypasta without real understanding, particularly of what some of the tests were about. Maybe a brief "what did we just do?" discussion at the end of each section would be helpful.

  • Judy J.

    Excellent. I got almost through the entire tutorial. I really like the hands-on and letting everyone proceed at their own pace but giving plenty of help. I'm going to have to review to really get the whole process.

    Hi David and others, I'll be co-organizing the PyLadies-SD group with Juliet. I plan to join you today after 3:30 to help with cleanup. I'm looking forward to meeting you. - Carol

    Breakfast will be from Pangaea bakery and lunch will be pizza. There will be vegetarian options, but pizzas are rarely vegan friendly or gluten free. Please send me a note (hit contact on the left side of this meetup page) if you have any dietary restrictions that I should take into account.

    In the interest of getting a fast start in the morning and having a working project by the afternoon, please spend a couple hours going through the Django tutorials before the workshop if you haven't already. We aren't expecting you to be a Django expert before you get there, but knowing the basics will enable the organizers to dive right into the fun stuff.
