Start your 2016 as you mean to go on - by attending a Django meetup.
We have a great line up this month, with a whopping five talks. Whether you're a newer Django developer wanting to improve your understanding of some key concepts, or a seasoned Djangonaut, there should be something for you.
We'll meet at Code Node at 7pm for the talks, followed by drinks.
Please note: in order to attend, you also need to register on the Skills Matter site for this meetup. It only takes a second: https://skillsmatter.com/meetups/7721-london-django-meetup

Getting the most out of Class Based Views - David Seddon

Want to give a talk? It can be as short as you like and as simple as you like. You don't need to be an expert, just have something to share. We welcome any topic as long as it's somewhat related to Django. Please get in contact with [masked].
8pm - SpaceBar
Our venue, Code Node, will have a brilliant new bar open serving both soft and alcoholic drinks, as well as snacks.
9.45pm - The Red Lion
The SpaceBar shuts around 9.45pm, so at this time we'll migrate across the road to the Red Lion pub for a final drink.
