Django 1.1 Layers
Posted on 2009-05-16, last modified 2009-05-19.

This is the text from the Django 1.1 talk I gave on Friday May 15 at Algonquin College for FOSSLC's Geocamp/Summercamp 2009.

I have tried to format this in a way that is well suited to skimming and easier to access from the web than reading the original slides. If you find this useful, please let me know.

This is a recording of the presentation I gave to the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group (OCLUG) on September 2 about their Django-based web site. I covered the server and virtualhost configuration for OCLUG, and two new features recently added to the site. I also presented some general information about how Django handles requests and discussed some of the code for the new features.

The recommended way of installing Django sites is to use mod_python. mod_python allows Apache to serve content much more quickly than CGI, but using it can create problems that are difficult to debug.

mod_python embeds the python interpreter in Apache and can share python interpreters between virtual hosts. This means that a misbehaving Python program can do much more damage than it could if it was running as a CGI script.

Django comes with an amazingly powerful database API that does a very good job of hiding database-specific SQL. Sometimes, though, the API doesn't do exactly what you expect. I ran into this when developing the code that displays the “Tags” that have stories posted.

Fortunately, there is a fairly easy way to get down to the SQL and see what is happening when something goes wrong.

Django Overview Slide
Posted on 2007-06-13, last modified 2007-06-22.

On May 31 I gave a tutorial on the new site code for the Ottawa Canada Linux Users Group.

The new site is based on Django. It implements the logic for displaying upcoming and past events, tracking speakers, locations and images. It can also display announcements as part of the front page.

The slides from my tutorial and the source code at various stages are attached below.
