Django February Meetup

Tuesday, 16th February at CodeNode, London

This meetup was organised by London Django Meetup Group in February 2016

What problems are we running into building Web APIs today? How can we best take advantage of Django's upcoming channels work to build realtime systems? What are Django's strengths in the changing API landscape, and how can it stay relevant?

What problems are we running into building Web APIs today? How can we best take advantage of Django's upcoming channels work to build realtime systems? What are Django's strengths in the changing API landscape, and how can it stay relevant?

  • REST - Taking a look at the pain points.
  • GraphQL - Why it exists, and what it could mean for the future.
  • Realtime - How we can build realtime interfaces in a more structured way.
  • Hypermedia - Why it hasn't yet lived up to its promises, and how it still might.
  • Microservices - The benefits and challenges of lightweight service architectures.

PanelApp, an example of Django helping Genomics

Once you have genomic data, how do you know what is a marker of a problem? How would your local GP or someone at a hospital? Access to expert knowledge and specialists is hard in any field but within the burgeoning field of genomics, even harder. Django is part of our approach to solving this problem.

Currently working as bioinformatician at Genomics England, where he develops solutions for common genomics problems related to data storage, data curation and data analysis. Antonio speaks English, Python, Spanish, R and Java.
