I was in charge of this week TryoMeetup and decided to make a presentation about Django REST Framework, a powerful and flexible toolkit that makes it easy to build Web APIs.

Django

This framework has some nice pros up its sleeve. It's easy to use and customize giving it a gentle learning curve, has great documentation, it's being actively developed and has easy-to-read sources. Unfortunately, working with relations can be a pain sometimes, and operations that change nested objects are under development.

We learned about basic elements from Django REST framework like building views, mixins, serializers and custom fields.

You can check the slides from my presentation here.

So, if you are building Web APIs, should you try it? ABSOLUTELY YES!
