Pythonistas, let's continue our magnificent journey on the Pythonic Way. It's now time to dive head first in web development usging Django, a Python web framework. Our second workshop of the Fall 2013 Session will be held in French and is a re-edition of our previous basic Django workshop. This workshop will show that “Beautiful is better than ugly” and that “Simple is better than complex”. — Zen de Python

The Montréal-Python Rugby League (MPRL) [DoesNotExist] cruelly needs a web app to manage its teams and its season. In only 3 hours, we’ll make this happen.

At the end of the workshop, you'll know :

  • the architecture of a Django project
