Models form the backbone of most Django sites. They contain the fields and behaviors of the data your site is using. The proper planning and implementation of models is one of the first steps to creating powerful and reusable Django apps. It’s also crucial for avoiding pitfalls and complex workarounds down the line. In this talk you’ll hear about: -

• Django model fields and methods

• Model inheritance

• Relational databases

• Migrations

• How to access the data stored within your models
