  • Jason King — Using django to make web apps

Django is a web framework written in python, that makes it quite pleasant to make reasonably complicated sites involving different types of information. I will be showing you how to make a simple site using django's template language, and demonstrate django's database extraction capabilities. A basic level of python is assumed.

Jason King is a former President of Linux Users Victoria, and has had various progamming jobs over the years, ranging from delphi, to php and python.

Claudine Chionh Humanities computing, Drupal and What I did on my holidays

This presentation will introduce the opportunities that free software and the web present for research, publication and collaboration in the humanities, particularly in the area of public history. I will discuss some of the technical and social challenges I have faced on the Founders and Survivors project, and will demonstrate how I am using Drupal to implement the data collection and presentation tasks for this project.

This is a mashup of two presentations I gave at LCA and DrupalSouth in Wellington in January, now with added Drupal goodness thanks to the feedback I received.

Claudine Chionh can get equally excited by original manuscripts and by the latest developments in Drupal 7. She is a developer on the Founders and Survivors project <>, which will follow the lives of Australian families from the convict transportation period to the First World War. She is especially interested in the use of web technologies to enable collaboration between academics and the wider community, and in connecting with others working in humanities computing in Australia.
