LA Django is group for lovers and users of the Python web framework Django. Whether you consider yourself Professional or amateur, expert or just curious to see if Django is for you, please join us for our monthly meeting.
Django is an open source web application framework, written in Python, which follows the model-view-controller architectural pattern. It was originally developed to manage several news-oriented sites for The World Company of Lawrence, Kansas, and was released publicly under a BSD license in July 2005; the framework was named after gypsy jazz guitarist Django Reinhardt. In June 2008 it was announced that a newly formed Django Software Foundation will take care of Django in the future.
Django's primary goal is to ease the creation of complex, database-driven websites. Django emphasizes reusability and "pluggability" of components, rapid development, and the principle of DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself). Python is used throughout, even for settings, files, and data models.
