What we're about

Founded back in 2013, MelbDjango is a group for anyone using or interested in Django, a Python web development framework as well as Python itself. We are interested in bringing together people from Melbourne's Django and Python communities and providing a place for people to learn from one another and showcase things they have built or have found useful.

Our venue and drinks are sponsored by Common Code, a tech partner & agency in Abbotsford with a rich history in Django. http://www.commoncode.com.au
