Introduction to building your first Django + Ember webshop.

Does frontend development sound scary or intriguing? Then, come join us for this workshop and discover more!
Frontend frameworks are not that different compared to backend frameworks. They are MV* also, and even if some of them are very different to what we are used to use in the "backend world", some of them are really close to what we are used to with Django.

During this workshop we will explore how to work with Django, DRF and Ember together, learn new concepts but also see how close Ember concepts are to Django concepts and that it's not that hard to make the bridge between the two.

In order to not loose any time during setup, a cookiecutter will be used. It has been prepared with a pre-installed Django + Ember application.
After reviewing what has been installed for us, the workshop will focus on:
- creating an API in Django with Django Rest Framework
- retrieving data from Django in Ember and displaying it to the user
- building a simple filter with Django Rest Framework
- Ember nested views and requesting filtered data from the backend
- filtering data in the frontend
- making thing prettier with transition animations

If possible at all, in order to be gentle on the conference wifi, we would like attendees to try to pre-install the cookiecutter available here: https://bitbucket.org/levit_scs/cc_django_ember_app . During the workshop, we will be working in pairs, so son't worry if you can't setup your computer properly beforehand. You can also come and find me during the conference if you would like some help with the setup.
