What is deployment, anyway?

Friday 6:04 pm

About This Talk

In this talk we will discuss:

  • runserver, and why it should not be run in production
  • what options are out there for deploying your Django application, and why managed platforms are useful
  • database options, and why PostgreSQL is the best choice
  • introductory system administration for Django developers

among more base concepts on the wonderful world of deployments!

Attendees will come away with a more complete understanding as to why deployments are complex, and clarity on why some time-honoured suggestions really are the best decisions to get on with the rest of your day.
