HttpRequest: An unsung hero of Django

Friday 11:00 AM–11:30 AM in Hall E

Part of the DjangoCon AU specialist track

We use it in every view, every request, but how much is HttpRequest doing for you that you never thought about?

See this talk and many more by getting your ticket to PyCon AU now!

I want a ticket!

One of the key strengths of Django is protecting us from the dangerous things: the non obvious hazards, the common tedious work, the foot-guns of the whole wild web.

Take a tour through HttpRequest, that cornerstone of every Django view, and see all the work you never realised it did for you.
