Submitted Nov 6, 2016

Django is a high-level free and open-source Python Web framework which follows the model-view-template (MVT) architectural pattern. It encourages rapid application development which is fast, secure and scalable with pragmatic design. Django is developed with a goal to build complex, database-driven websites with ease. It provides hassle free web app development experience and other core functionalities.

In this talk I will talk about the complete architecture of the Django framework, about its component, getting started with building an example web application. And some other performance and optimization tools and techniques.

In this talk the audience (preferably beginner and intermediate level), will know how to get started with Django and sample running web application on the go as well as with core concepts of Django (MVT) architecture and a bit of Python magic.
