Clean Architecture With Python
In 2012 Robert C Martin released his article "Clean Architecture" which later became a controversial book of the same name- engineers still diverge between loving and hating his concepts. At the last meeting of the San Francisco Django Meetup Group, Jair Vercosa gave a talk on clean architecture with Python in which he discusses how to implement clean architecture with python using one of it's most popular frameworks. Some concepts are simplified to help make them more digestable and to allow the development process to be more enjoyable. Enjoy the video of the full talk below!
Migrating From REST to GraphQl in Django
At the last meeting of the San Francisco Django Meetup Group, Manish Sinha gave a talk on migrating from REST to GraphQl in Django. His talk touches on what REST and GraphQL are and moves into how to migrate a Django app that serves REST to one that serves GraphQL. Specifically, he takes an existing application built using Django Rest Framework and converts it to use Graphene (https://github.com/graphql-python/graphene-django). How to write tests, performance concerns, and areas for improvement are also covered. Enjoy the video!
