The Whys and Hows of using Django Formsets


Are you having trouble choosing the right design approach for handling multiple forms on the same page? Do you end up writing large quantities of code to deal with a dynamically changing set of forms? If so, Django Formsets is the perfect life saver for you!

Most new Django users are intimidated at the idea of Formsets and more often than not, this flexible feature goes unnoticed! This talk will cover the following topics: - Where exactly does one use Formsets and how? - Dealing with dynamically changing forms. - Views & Formsets. - What are the most common roadblocks and what to do about them?

I will also cover how Formsets helped me code GNU Mailman's user settings management feature to handle mailing list settings for a multiple-users multiple-lists scenario.
