DjangoCon AU is annual gathering of Django developers in Australia. It is held as a one day mini-conference at the start of PyCon AU.
DjangoCon AU content will be Django specific, but there will also be useful Django-related content in the main PyCon program.
There will also be Django developers at the sprints held after PyCon.

Django is a robust framework by design, and embodies many good
security practices. But why and how do Django sites get hacked
anyway? What can we do about it? And why are astronauts involved?
Come and learn how pessimism can be optimistic, complexity can be simple, and fear can be a friend.
As developers, we write a lot more than just code. We write commit messages; we review our colleagues’ code; we email collaborators; we tweet our hottest takes. Good written communication can make your systems easier to use and maintain, encourage your colleagues to be more receptive to your suggestions, and make you more popular on the internet. I’ll share some practical ways to communicate more effectively, and some less practical theory about how people and language work.
We take a look at Django and Channels 2.0 and the changes it brings by going fully async - Examining not only why the change makes things better, but also how it’s managed to bridge between Django’s synchronous world and the async world. Plus, what might the future hold for Django and Channels?
Hahmann and Burghart estimate at least 60% of all information is geospatially referenced. Fortunately, Django includes a variety of spatial and mapping tools to help build spatially-aware services. This talk will give an overview of geospatial concepts for the Australian and Django communities.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) and two-factor auth (2FA) are becoming popular, but how do they work? What are the options, how secure are they, and how do you use them in your own applications? We’ll answer all these and more, covering everything from Django integration to cryptography.
So many of the things we build depend on a DBMS to keep our data safe, and retrieve it quickly. We know indexes can make that faster, but… how do they work? When should you use them? What should I index?
Increasingly, our apps are used not by humans but by other apps - via their APIs. Thus your APIs need to be well-designed and easy to consume for other developers. I will share tips and good practices on authentication, versioning, documentation, response structure, and why it all matters.
In this talk, we’ll see how we make a language agnostic backend, to serve our app in different languages, based on what language the client wants to communicate in. We’ll see how to support translation for static data and dynamic data, using various third-party services.
Deploying Django sites the traditional way is tricky for beginners and a hassle for even experienced developers. This talk will show you three easier routes to launching your beautiful new site, and teach you to impress your colleagues with buzzwords like ‘Serverless’, ‘Docker’ and ‘SSG’.
