1. Packaging Python for Debian/Ubuntu
Tal Liron <tal.liron at threecrickets.com>
Introduction to the whole Debian distribution system, which is
actually pretty neat, and show you how to push your Python app into a
Personal Package Archive (PPA) on Launchpad, which is not neat at all
and in fact is an undocumented abyss teeming with poisonous,
man-eating crocodiles. I'll save you from the crocodiles.
2. REST-ful Web apps with Django Piston
Matt Dorn <matt.dorn at gmail.com>
A common complaint about Django, the leading Python web application
framework, is that it doesn't make writing REST APIs easy enough. In
fact the paradigm for a typical Django application involves views
which map to HTML page templates. With end users increasingly
expecting rich interfaces with the responsiveness of a desktop
application, this paradigm is being superseded. Fortunately a
third-party Django application called Piston fills the gap.
widget set to create attractive, responsive Web applications, and this
talk will show you how.
