The Linux Users' Group of Davis (LUGOD) will be holding the following meeting
this month:

  May 16, 2011
  7:00pm - 9:00pm


  "Django web framework"
  Joel Bremson, Graduate Student Researcher
  Institute of Transportation Studies, UC Davis

    Django is an open source web application framework, written in the
    open source Python programming language, and which follows the
    model-view-controller architectural pattern (MVC).  It is high-level,
    and encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design.

    Developed four years ago 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.

    This talk will include a demonstration of building of a small app and
    explain the basics of django's MVC implementation.  Basic understanding
    of scripting languages and web development will be assumed.

This meeting will be held at:

  Yolo County Public Library, Davis Branch  (Mary L. Stephens Branch)
  Blanchard community meeting room
  315 East 14th Street
  Davis, California 95616
