Applying the unix philosophy to django projects: a report from the real world


Software architecture is often overlooked: pushed by deadlines and hurry, we tend to make our applications a giant ball of mud. Here is where the unix philosophy comes to help.

In this talk I will give an overview of the unix philosophy and I will explain how I have applied it to django development for the OpenWISP and NetJSON projects (a set of software modules and standard formats that can be used to deploy wireless networks and implement a public wifi service) with encouraging results. In this talk I will cover the benefits and the downside of such approach, showing example implementations that are being tested in the real world.

Slides are available on slideshare.

Do you have some questions on this talk?
