Django Backend Software Development Mentorship

This mentorship is addressed to people who know a bit of web programming and want to either learn the Python/Django ecosystem or expand their knowledge on it.

We will explore:

  1. Writing Django applications
    • Function-based and class-based views
    • User system
    • ORM and migration system
  2. Structuring Django applications
    • Where do we put what?
  3. Django standard library
    • What else is there in Django?
  4. Deploying Django applications with nginx and uWSGI
    • We built it, how do we put it online?
  5. Optimising Django applications
    • How do we make it not slow?

We would work like this:

  • Meet in person to discuss what kind of projects would be interesting to build.
  • Draw a handful of milestones to measure progress.
  • Meet weekly or twice-weekly until we complete milestones.
  • The length of the mentorship is not strictly defined but it’s designed to be between 5-7 sessions with 2-4 hours per session.

Application until September 15th, 2022.
