We use Django as our main tool for implementing backends to our projects. Working with it since 2007, it has never let us down.
Django is a python web framework, which allows rapid development of complex and feature rich web applications, while keeping architecture clean, extensible, and reusable.
You may have heard about projects build on Django, Instagram, Pinterest, Eventbrite, and others.
Working with Django for so many years, we’ve had a chance to truly learn it inside out, work with all of the built in features it provides and even customize some of them to solve tricky technical requirements within our projects.
One of the best parts of Django is the active community and rich ecosystem of tools and applications. Here at Gearheart we’ve had a chance to work with tons of third-party applications, some worth specific mentioning are:
Django REST Framework is a powerful library that allows you to generate a REST API based on your database structure and extend it easily with your custom business logic. All of our single page applications and mobile backends use APIs, based on Django REST Framework.
Django CMS is an add-on to Django that allows administrators to create and edit a complex hierarchy of pages with arbitrary content. You can create articles; contact forms, product pages and other content with the powerful editor that allows you to modify content right on the frontend of your site and instantly see the results.
Gearheart’s Django developers have proved to be efficient, professional, and reliable. We are happy to implement a new project for you or bring your existing application to the next level.
We are burning not only with cool projects, but also with the people behind them. And a perfect team match truly matters. Our clients are our partners, co-authors, and friends at all project stages. Here are some examples of times when Gearheart became a best-fit teammate for our customers.
Earlier in our previous article "Improve efficiency of your SELECT queries" we discussed ways to profile and optimize the performance of SELECT queries. However, to write complex yet efficient SQL queries, there is a thing to remember about.
SQL is a fairly complicated language with a steep learning curve. For a large number of people who make use of SQL, learning to apply it efficiently takes lots of trials and errors. Here are some tips on how you can make your SELECT queries better. The majority of tips should be applicable to any relational database management system, but the terminology and exact namings will be taken from PostgreSQL.
