Simple WSGI composition: story of one refactoring (#51)

Description

Simple WSGI composition: story of one refactoring

Presented by Max Ischenko

Story of a refactoring I did to split one big, monolithic Pylons app into a bunch of smaller ones, using power of WSGI and nginx. The devil is in the details: how to handle common auth, site-wide look and feel, common utilities, database management. Pros and cons of the approach, possible alternatives.

The talk assumes listeners know what WSGI is and preferably have used some WSGI-centered framework like Pylons, Werkzeug, Paste or other.

The application this talk describes powers developers.org.ua.
