Meet up

Heroku Tour and Getting the most out of Class Based Views

Tuesday, 19th January at CodeNode, London

This meetup is run by London Django Meetup Group. Starts at 7:00 PM.

Start your 2016 as you mean to go on - by attending a Django meetup. We have a great line up this month, with a whopping five talks. Whether you're a newer Django developer wanting to improve your understanding of some key concepts, or a seasoned Djangonaut, there should be something for you.

Schedule

7pm - Talks

Want to give a talk? It can be as short as you like and as simple as you like. You don't need to be an expert, just have something to share. We welcome any topic as long as it's somewhat related to Django. Please get in contact with david@seddonym.me.

8pm - SpaceBar

Our venue, Code Node, will have a brilliant new bar open serving both soft and alcoholic drinks, as well as snacks.

9.45pm - The Red Lion

The SpaceBar shuts around 9.45pm, so at this time we'll migrate across the road to the Red Lion pub for a final drink.
