Unclutter Your Code with Django Bootcamp at the Big Nerd Ranch, April 13-17, 2009
Start your spring cleaning the right way by cleaning out the clutter in your code at the Big Nerd Ranch, with the recently announced Django Bootcamp, April 13-17, 2009.
Django Bootcamp at the Big Nerd Ranch provides students with the best Django training available to develop dynamic, database-driven web applications. Based on the Don't Repeat Yourself (DRY) principle, the Python-based Django framework offers a pragmatic approach to web development ideal for web developers and organizations that need rapidly developed, easily deployed, extensible and robust web applications and websites. Moreover, the Google AppEngine offers a reliable, low-cost solution for entrepreneurs and small businesses to deploy their Django applications and scale them as their business and user base grows. And in five short days at the Big Nerd Ranch, students attending this Django training class will emerge fully equipped to begin leveraging this clutter-free framework for their own projects.
"One of the great things about Django's elegance and streamlined structure is that it allows for unbelievable complexity in design, while still remaining easy to administer," commented Django instructor Juan Pablo Claude. "While it was originally designed to meet the time-sensitive demands of a newsroom, in today's reality where time is money, Django offers a pragmatic solution for organizations wanting to optimize their resources."
Much like the framework itself, Django Bootcamp is a no-nonsense class that zeroes in on the essentials of Django instruction. By the end of the week, students will be able to:
- Deploy Django applications using mod_python and Apache or FastCGI and Apache
- Integrate databases into applications, using PostgreSQL, MySQL or SQLite
- Leverage Django's powerful template system to eliminate duplication
- Implement AJAX solutions into applications using Django
- Create web services using Django and generate email and PDF and CSV files
- Understand how to utilize the Google AppEngine to deploy Django applications and boost an organization's ability to create new web-based businesses
Students attending the class should have a basic understanding of object-oriented programming, and while Python is not a prerequisite, many students have found 'Learning Python' by Mark Lutz a useful resource in preparing for Django Bootcamp.
The Big Nerd Ranch incorporates intensive training classes for Unix and Mac OS X programmers in a retreat setting outside Atlanta, GA. Class price of $3500 includes lodging, all meals, original instruction materials, 24-hour lab access, and transportation to and from the Atlanta airport. Students are encouraged to bring independent projects to class, allowing for input from classmates and individual instructor attention.
