Jumping Into Django Models


About the Talk

Django Models are the definitive declaration about your data. They contain essential fields and define behaviors that allow you to access and manipulate your data independently on your database engine. In this talk, we’ll get started with Models, from creating your first model, adding model methods, making queries, aggregation and more.

If you’ve always wanted to level up with Django Models, this is the talk for you.

What You’ll Learn
