Modern Websites with Django and React • Andrew Neitsch

Django is the leading Python web framework, but its fundamental purpose of responding to link and button clicks with full HTML web page responses can feel old-fashioned in a world where people expect to make and receive live updates to their web pages. One way to get a modern-style app, using mostly Python and not too much JavaScript, is with React (https://facebook.github.io/react/).

This talk will be a mashup of the tutorials from Django (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.10/intro/tutorial01/), django-rest-framework (http://www.django-rest-framework.org/tutorial/quickstart/), and React (https://facebook.github.io/react/docs/tutorial.html). You’ll work on a survey app that displays poll updates, including ones from other users, without reloading the page.

@property • Kurt Neufeld

Properties are a core feature of Python that helps you write more maintainable code. Kurt will give a short introduction.
