Divio at DjangoCon Europe 2018

Thomas Bailey

April 30, 2018

This year's DjangoCon Europe is coming up fast and for us it's a great chance both to meet our fellow Django developers and also meet our users - often for the first time.

This year, we're sponsoring the event, and members of the Divio team are speaking (presenting a keynote and a deep-dive technical session). Several members of the engineering team are joining from around the world to be on hand to answer questions and participate in discussions. The full schedule has now been finalised and our sessions will include:

Katie McLaughlin: ORM - The Sequel

Technical talk (Thursday, 11:00–11:30)

Already know SQL, but aren't familiar with Django? This talk will look at Django's ORM from this different perspective. More info in the schedule.

Daniele Procida: The Naïve Programmer

Keynote (Friday, 09:10–10:00)

On skill and sophistication in programming.

Also at the event will be two other key members of our team: Paulo Alvarado, lead developer of django CMS, and Dennis Schwertel, one of our platform engineers.

DjangoCon Europe, like the other developer events we attend, is an important part of our open-source approach. We build our own products with open-source components and one small way of being able to give back is to be at events to champion the technologies and provide support wherever possible - we are part of the community, so we look after it.

We applaud the efforts that this event's organisers have put in to make it as accessible as possible, so we have opted to sponsor the speech to text live-captioning service during the talks. It's a valuable and much-appreciated feature of the conference and we're proud to be associated with it.

Meet us at DjangoCon Europe
