TriPython October 2017 Meeting: Why You Need An API And How To Build It Using Django Rest Framework

Document Actions
Charlotte Mays will discuss a few off-the-beaten-path applications of APIs, and make the case for writing them into your web applications. Since the combination of Django and DRF makes it so easy to get a simple API running, it becomes a very powerful, flexible, and expandable tool for a variety of uses. The only thing these applications may have in common is their need to share data with other apps. Some prior knowledge of Django would be useful but not required. Charlotte is a developer of fine Django web applications at our sponsor Caktus Group. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Lightning talks are for you to "show and tell" something you've learned about Python recently, no matter how small. We all use Python, therefore, we are always learning something new about Python that we can tell others. Plenty of free parking is available in the RENCI parking deck. The meeting will be followed by our usual after-meeting at a nearby tavern for food and beverage. Come join us for a fun and informative evening.
