7:00 - 7:50 Presentation - "Introduction to Django" | Eric Lavigne
Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.
Developed and used over two years by a fast-moving online-news operation, Django was designed to handle two challenges: the intensive deadlines of a newsroom and the stringent requirements of the experienced Web developers who wrote it. It lets you build high-performing, elegant Web applications quickly.
Eric Lavigne will graduate imminently from the University of Florida's Nuclear Science program. When he is not writing software to detect "particles that will do bad things to you" (TM), he enjoys studying programming frameworks and functional programming. After graduation, Eric will join the IT team of the Bureau of Economic and Business Research in Gainesville, Florida.
