On April 7th, 2014, Simon Willison, Nathan Yergler, and Andrew Godwin collaborated to lead a tutorial on advanced Django techniques, used to scale applications that handle massive datasets and millions of visitors, at Eventbrite and Lanyrd. The three engineers, who have worked on both sites, each give two 15-minute talks.
According to the description on the event page, "This tutorial will dive deep into the tricks, techniques and architectural patterns used to build large-scale, real-world Django applications. Topics covered will include internationalization, feature flags, unit testing at scale, zero-downtime migrations and deployment, API design and monitoring and profiling of large-scale production sites."
As the talks are published, they will be posted here.
