Django 101

  • Sep 10, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Please join us for our first Web development workshop — Django 101: Your first Django app step by step.  The material will guide you through the making of a bookmarking site à la Delicious. You will need to bring your own laptop in order to participate.  The space is right at the ground level (the Colab café) and wheelchair accessible.

Django is an open-source Web framework written in Python that focuses on quick development and clean, pragmatic design.  Note that while the workshop is laid out for 4 hours we're only hosting the first half — a 2-hour workshop — today.

Our workshops are hands-on and at your own pace, suitable for men and women alike.  We provide material with a lot of exercises which has gone through numerous iterations of feedback.  Coaches stand by the sidelines to help with any problems learners might encounter.  All coaches are volunteers, participation is free of charge.  The material is available in English and German;  coaches speak a mix of languages.


Because the number of seats is limited, it is important that you only sign up if you definitely plan on coming (and do so, too!). If you can't make it for any reason, please cancel your attendance on Meetup right away so your someone on the waiting list can take your place. Thanks!


Coaches please be there an half an hour early (6pm) so we can discuss last details.  You should also have a look at the material in advance.

    A very interesting framework. As with the other Python courses there is a significant amount of prep-installation to be done which detracts from the course's learning objectives. In the Django 101 course there is a HUGE amount of stuff going on. I think I have seen some interesting concepts and the bookmark app has a cunning amount of subtly different concepts that serve to show with a minimum amount of code a maximum amount of different fields, referential constrains etc. Whilst the course works well on the "do this and that happens" level I feel it is a bit shallow on the conceptual level. Perhaps some diagrams would be nice and and introduction into what the finished project should be doing so that we can map the steps towards the goal?

    The material is laid out for a 4-hour workshop, but we're going to split it in half and make it a 2-hour workshop. If somebody steps up to be the lead host we could also do it on a weekend (I'm not available the next weekends, except for Aug 31/Sep 1), which is always more relaxed.

    How long will this take approximately? I'm interested in coaching (even though I've been using Django for only about half a year).
