We will kick off this meetup with an intro to Djangocon followed by talks on Time Zones in Django and Desktop apps with Django.

Introduction and Djangocon EU summary

It's About Time: Getting to Grips with Timezones in Django

Timezones can be confusing and annoying if you need to support them in a project. David will run us through the tools Django provides for working with them.

David is a developer at Octopus Energy, and the maintainer of Layer Linter. He loves clean architecture and code that people can understand. He blogs at http://seddonym.me/.

Django Desktop Applications

It's not a normal use case, but Django applications can be deployed on the desktop! Alex will cover a project he worked on that did this.

Alex Damian
