Speaker: Corey Antoniuk
Topic: Python Web Development with Django
Prerequisite(s): https://docs.python.org/3/tutorial/ 
Cheatsheet: https://www.cs.mcgill.ca/docs/tutorials/django/ 
In this tutorial, we will create a personal website tailored for a young, rockstar academic using the Django framework for Python. Our site will host a cv, and have a blog which can be updated using a web interface.

In the process of building this simple site, we will cover the basics of web development, MVC frameworks, Django, and hopefully, deployment to a server.

We will follow closely with the excellent Django Girls tutorial, which covers far more than we will have time for:
