Django is a framework for creating web-applications which supports the following technologies/approaches:
- MVC - Model-View-Controller
- Auto-Admin Interface
- User-friendly URLs
Firstly, Daniel gave a general introduction into creation of web-sites beginning with static HTML, over CGI-Scripts to modern web-frameworks .
Secondly, he introduced Django by creating a Django application to manage "Running-Events" like e.g. Marathons.
Django features the semi-automatic creation of applications using manage-scripts, which for example generate database-tables from models written down in Python-code. It is possible to generate Python-code from database-tables as well.
Report vom EuroPython 2009
This year's EuroPython took place in Birmingham (UK). Location was the Birmingham Conservatoire. There were about 450 participants.
For EuroPython advance booking for the conference as well as for talks is necessary.
There were 6 tracks in parallel. Therefore, it was not possible to attend all talks of interest. However there are recordings.
Speakers have to apply to EuroPython in advance. New topics are favored over the repetition of older talks.
Furthermore, an Open-Space for free exchange of information is provided. Food, drink and coffee are provided as well.
The minutes of the meeting in German language can be found here.
The next meeting will be held on, Wednesday, August, 12th.
Some of the participants enjoyed the rest of the evening in our usual italian restaurant having food, drinks and friendly conversation.
