122 East Patrick Street, Frederick, MD
Python Frederick has a talk every second Wednesday of each month. This month:
Come learn about how the PyCon Guide was built, how WebSockets work, and the Channels-based future of Django.
We're facing a new asynchronous age in web development. WebSockets are universally supported by browsers and provide fast, light-weight communication with the server. Unfortunately, Django is tied to a strict HTTP request/response model that doesn't play nicely with interactive communication with clients. Django Channels replaces the core of Django with a messaging system that handles both normal HTTP requests and bi-directional messages. PyCon Guide was created to make it easy to browse PyCon sessions and add them to your personal calendar. We built it using WebSockets and Channels because what better time is there to go to production with new technology than when all of your professional peers are going to look at?
