Scaling Django Codebases at PyCon UK 2017

This post was published on Thread's Engineering blog.

Four of us from the Thread engineering team went to PyCon UK again in September for the third year running, and I was lucky enough to have my talk selected.

At Thread we use Django for the backend of the main site which has grown to over 350 “apps”, and various members of the team have used the framework since not long after the initial public release.

I’ve learnt many tips, tricks, and best practices for keeping engineers productive on a codebase of this size from my colleagues over the years, and I shared the highlights with the Python community in September.
