TriPython August 2016 Meeting: Django & REST API Code-Along

Document Actions
Ever wanted to learn more about Django? Django is a high-level Python Web framework that makes it easier to build better Web apps more quickly and with less code. Do you want to know more? Want to check out that snazzy built-in Admin interface that comes standard with Django? Learn how to migrate a Django model? How about building a REST API from the ground up using Django views? Then bring your gear and code-along with us as we cover these topics and others of interest. We will build a simple working project for Inventory Management and you can take it home to continue learning. If you’re still confused or just want to learn more than the basics, we will have a general Q&A at the end. Let’s Django! Our presenters are Kenny Yarboro and Alyssa Andrews. Kenny holds a Master of Computer Science and B.S. in Computer Science degree from North Carolina State University. He has over 8 years of software industry experience spanning web services, automation, product development, and product support. His current focus is building self-service automation for IT request fulfillment. Kenny has previously given presentations at DjangoCon 2014 & 2015 and PyCon 2015. Alyssa is currently pursuing a B.S. degree in Computer Science from North Carolina State University and will graduate May of 2017. She has worked two internships, one with IBM and one with SAS, over her summers since her freshman year. Her skill sets include Python, Django, Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and she currently works alongside a team whose goal is self-service automation throughout IT at SAS. Extemporaneous "lightning talks" of 5-10 minute duration are also welcome and don't need to be pre-announced. Plenty of free after hours parking is available in the upper level of the deck behind WebAssign (turn through the median just before the intersection of Varsity and Main Campus Drives). If the door is locked, call the number posted on the door. An after-meeting location for food and beverage will be decided at the meeting (usually BaDa Wings for the Thursday night draught specials).
