PyNE Feb 2015 - Django tutorial (part 1)

location Campus North | 6 PM-8:30 PM Wednesday 11 February 2015 (BST)

Django Tutorial part 1

This month we're super lucky to have Scott Walton (@scott_walton) taking us through an introductory tutorial to Django. We'll be learning the basics of Django by creating a simple Twitter-like website that lets us read and send user messages. Existing Python knowledge isn't necessary. The second part of the tutorial will be in March.


For those not aware of Django, it describes itself as "… a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Built by experienced developers, it takes care of much of the hassle of Web development, so you can focus on writing your app without needing to reinvent the wheel. It’s free and open source."


If you want to get a head start have a look at the instructions for installation in Scott's GitHub repo:

(If anyone has experience installing on Windows can you ping Scott the instructions.)

If you are an experienced Django-naut please come a long to help others learn.

Pizza will be courtesy of our kind sponsors Sharpe Recruitment (@sharperecruit) and Pebble (@mypebble) - get there early to get a slice! And we once again will be hosted by the ace folks at Campus North (@campusnorthuk).

Campus North is down the hill from the Body Zone Gym and the Cornerstone Cafe on the corner of Carliol Square. Please ring the doorbell, or tweet @PythonNorthEast, to get let in.

Hope to see you there and please spread the word.

The meetup requires a minimum of 15 signed up to proceed.
