Django 1.8 adds a whole bunch of cool new features that are specifically designed for PostgreSQL. We'll take a quick tour through them, and show when and how you can use them in real-world applications. We'll also talk about how to get the best performance out of PostgreSQL when using the Django ORM.


Among the topics are:

  • A survey of the new Django 1.8 PostgreSQL features.
  • Using migrations with PostgreSQL in interesting ways.
  • Real-life applications of the new field types.
  • Basic model design for good performance on PostgreSQL.
