Conference and Workshop
Friday 7th - Sunday 9th November
FULL-DAY FRIDAY Pure Python Web Workshop: Pyjamas + JSONRPC + Django
Abstract: This is a hands-on workshop for anyone interested in doing web sites using exclusive python technology from start to finish:
The choice of application that they would like to do will be up to the attendees, but will, lacking any better suggestions, include an "Email Me" application and a "Blogging" site.
Attendees should have their own computer and should ideally have the following technology already installed. (debian users will get assistance during the tutorial; non-debian users will need other attendees to assist them on the installation procedures for their linux OS of choice).
for the "very advanced", they might wish to download python-django 0.96 or better and also django "evolution" (available on code.google.com) which will allow them to make changes to the database, live. for the very VERY advanced, they might like to obtain the django-geodata from djangoproject's subversion repository, along with postgis, taking the data from geodata.org and try their luck at doing geographical-location data (useful for searching for users by distance from a location).
Attendees should ideally have:
A willingness to learn very quickly will substitute for prior knowledge of the above, especially as there will be a great deal of expertise on tap in the tutorial.
Biography: Luke Leighton is a technology specialist, researcher and Free Software advocate. Having cut the network-reverse-engineering ice on both the NT Domains and Exchange for Unix projects, he is usually ahead of the curve on "best technology for the job". Focussing on such oddities as Pyjamas, he is interested in anything that saves time, money and effort to provide the average person and the average developer with the technological tools that they will find useful (rather than a hindrance).
