	CLUG Programmers' Special Interest Group Meeting - 9th October 2008

Date:		9th October 2008 (Second Thursday of the month)

Time:		19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

Speaker:	Paul Wayper

Abstract:	Paul will be presenting a look at the features of the
		Django web framework, particularly a look at its
		templating language. 
		Web frameworks revolve around the Model / View /
		Controller system. Confusingly, in Django these are
		known as the Model, Template and View. The view code
		reads data from the model and presents it to the user in
		the template. Django's templating language is designed
		to enforce this separation of code and presentation, as
		it lacks the power of other templating systems (such as
		ClearSilver) and thus forcing the programmer to put the
		logic in the view or model. On the other hand, Django's
		URL handling takes all the hard work out of keeping your
		website's URLs in sync. 
		Paul will be demonstrating these principles on the
		"Club-In-A-Box" project website, and will be
		encouraging more developers to get involved in it. 

Venue:		Looking Glass Studios
		Meet at Cafe Essen at 18:00 (see map) for socialising before
		going on to the Looking Glass Studios training room at 
		19:00 for the talk, and finding somewhere to go for dinner by 
		consensus afterwards.
