Stumbling Through Django and How Not To

Translations: en


If you’re a beginner about to embark on a new Django project adventure, this talk is for you.

When I started my first Django project, I took the “Sure, I think I can figure that out” approach, which is fun! And also dangerous. But exciting! And also horrible because I caused myself a lot of trouble and barfed on my keyboard. (Metaphorically.) Oops.

My hope for this talk is to pass along lessons I learned the hard way, and save the world. Or at least prevent some frustration. :)

We’ll talk about:

  • version control
  • structuring your project
  • and how to handle top secret stuff.

We’ll also talk about:

  • throwing house parties without causing anaphylaxis
  • pregnant daddy seahorses
  • velociraptors
  • and friends.

I promise all of that is related to Django.
