  • MindMixer kindly offered to host this meetup. They will be providing food and drink. Please RSVP if you plan to attend to allow for proper planning. Thank you!
    Matt Barr will present Django REST Framework: The Web API framework for perfectionists who like to take naps.
    Some day in the future we'll all be enjoying a refreshing cup of Dippin' Dots on our space-porches reminiscing about all the quaint and rustic SOAP, WSDL, RPC, and other, stranger, formats we used to expose our web services with. Like Dippin' Dots (the ice-cream of the future), RESTful architectures have been around for awhile and will also dominate the web services of the future. With it's extremely successful Kickstarter last month, Django REST Framework is a prime platform to consider for you next set of web-services. In this talk we'll look at:
    • REST - how? why?
    • General structure of a Django REST Framework endpoint/system
    • How DRF ties in to the Django code you already know and love
    • Vastly better service documentation with DRF (how to quickly get the JavaScript guys excited)
    • Vastly better analytics with DRF + middleware (how to quickly get the architect excited)
    • Some honest gotchas
    We still have an available slot for a second presentation, and there should be ample time for lightning talks. Please post to the discussion for this meetup if you would like to present.
