Snakes in a browser11:45 AM - 12:10 PM on July 17, 2016, Room CR7
- Audience level:
We all know that Python and Django can be used to write server-side software, but what about the client side? What about the browser? Can you use Python to power client-side interactions? Can you deploy Python logic (such as validation logic) on both the client and the server?
In this talk, Russell Keith-Magee will walk you through the Batavia project, and how it is used, along with Django, to power Toga Web. You'll be taken on a dive through how Batavia works, and how it is able to deliver Python logic to a browser with very little overhead. The talk will conclude with a demonstration of Toga in action, and an exploration of what the future might hold if Batavia and Toga were developed further.
