Performant Django: Best Practices for Solving Complex Front-End and Back-End Issues

Since the days of version 1.0 Django itself and the Django community have added features that address performance and scalability pain points - everything from cached template loaders to prefect_related() and the django-debug-toolbar.

When and how do you use these tools to make your site fast? In this talk, Ara Anjargolian (Co-founder and CTO, YCharts) walks us through the Django/Python performance landscape. He shows us tips, tricks and best practices in addressing front-end and back-end performance with Django.


This talk was given at the Django NYC Meetup hosted by Buzzfeed in Brooklyn, NY.
