Django’s watching my back(end)

With the advent of new amazing front-end frameworks and the ever-increasing power of browsers and mobile processors, webapp users expect a dynamic, seamless user experience where page refresh is out of the question. We all love Django, but server template rendering is not cool anymore. What do? Use Django as a pure back-end. In this talk, technologies, strategies and third-party packages will be discussed, which will enable you to hit the ground running when tackling your first decoupled project. Also the (somewhat) dodgy question, ‘why Django?’ will be addressed and morphed into the less drastic question ‘where Django?’ by analyzing the advantages and disadvantages of Django opposed to other technologies, while seeking out to find the mindset that will keep Django relevant in the future.
