7:30 Why to use Django for single page or hybrid applications too (Dan Tudorache)

With the advent of new amazing front-end frameworks and the ever-increasing power of browsers and mobile processors, webapp users expect a dynamic, seamless user experience where page refresh is out of the question. Therefore server template rendering is not cool anymore. What to do? Use Django as a pure back-end. In this talk, technologies, strategies and third-party packages will be discussed, we will analyze and debate the advantages and disadvantages of Django opposed to other technologies.
