REST-ful Web apps with Django Piston

Summary

A common complaint about Django, the leading Python web application framework, is that it doesn't make writing REST APIs easy enough. In fact the paradigm for a typical Django application involves views which map to HTML page templates. With end users increasingly expecting rich interfaces with the responsiveness of a desktop application, this paradigm is being superseded. Fortunately a third-party Django application called Piston fills the gap. Django/Piston can be combined with the Ext JS JavaScript framework and widget set to create attractive, responsive Web applications, and this talk will show you how.
