We are excited to announce DjangoCph, the first ever Django conference in Copenhagen. The intention is to have an amazing day and start something new in our town... borrowing a good deal of inspiration from DjangoCon Europe, which many of us have attended and loved.
On Friday March 16th, we will organize a whole day for the Copenhagen community to get together, sharing 5 main talks + lightning talks. The day after, Saturday 17th, will be a day of Django sprints with participation of members of Django core (NB! at a different location).
We aim at an atmosphere that will allow everyone to interact, and to open up a space for participants to share their interests and visions by means of birds of feather sessions and lightning talks.
Markus Holtermann has been a Django Core developer since early 2015. His focus in Django includes migrations, databases and security. He lives in Berlin and works as senior back-end developer in Laterpay
Django's ORM is powerful. And it has been for ages. It only became even more powerful over the last years. Django's ORM can be intimidating because it can do so many things. And it can also be confusing when trying to find out how to do things.
Thomas Steen Rasmussen works as a developer and system administrator with a speciality in networks. His favourite technologies include Django, FreeBSD, Postgres and Nginx.
TR-069 (Technical Report 069) is a technical specification from the Broadband Forum that defines an application layer protocol for remote management of customer-premises equipment (CPE) connected to an Internet Protocol (IP) network.
TR-069 is used by Internet Service Providers (ISP) to configure routers and other equipment. The CPE WAN Management Protocol (CWMP) defines RPC methods for bi-directional SOAP over HTTP(s) to communicate with the devices.
Auto Configuration Servers (ACS) uses CWMP/TR-069 to configure (and even firmware upgrade) devices. Commercial and open-source ACS servers are available, we decided to build our own.
This talk will cover TR-069/CWMP/ACS basics, the decision to build our own ACS server, design decisions during development, challenges and wins during the almost two-year period of running our Django based ACS server in production.

Jesper L. Andersen Jesper is a Danish programming language geek, who has been working with Erlang for about 10 years. He is generally interested in formal methods, self healing systems, fault tolerance, programming languages, distributed systems, concurrency, and parallelism. He likes to apply new theoretic research by finding a practical real-world application for the problem. Former works include BitTorrent clients in Erlang and Haskell, various load regulators for systems. Currently he is mostly interested in the application of property-based-testing to real systems and GraphQL implementations.
Unfortunately, the talk is canceled, we are working on a replacement

Johannes Wilm is the main developer of Fidus Writer, a Django based, open source, realtime-collaborative, richtext, and semantic text editor for academic purposes. As a trained anthropologist, Johannes is focusing on building web apps for users who have little experience with the web, and Python has helped him do that first in the form of Zope from the year 2000, and since 2009 in the form of Django.
With a background in digital advertising, Morten Barklund has made over 300 websites, games and apps in 16 years. Being a full stack developer, he has experience with a wide variety of technologies from Java to Flash. Most recently Morten has been a freelancer for 4 years making heavy use of Django as a backend to many more or less complex web app frontends.
Writing a basic REST API is simple in many languages and frameworks. Django with DRF and related packages however allows you to write elaborate APIs with complex relationships and narrow, granular access restrictions. And it's surprisingly simple once you understand the possibilities. We'll go through a few real-world examples, that goes far beyond (the mostly useless) TodoMVC.
We are setting aside a full final session for lightning talks!
It's a great way to share an idea, without needing lots of preparations. It's also a great way to practice being on stage. And it's a lot of fun to be part of.
Prepare a 5 minute talk: If you have slides (you don't need to!), send them to email@example.com or have them ready on a USB. There will be VGA and HDMI (normal) at the venue. Slides will be shared on the site afterwards.
