‘Django – python web framework’ session taken by me in Python Pune Meetup Feb 2017

Hi Readers,

On 26th Feb, I took a session on ‘django – python web framework’ in Python Pune Meetup at Tixdo Pvt. Ltd. Cybercity, magarpatta Pune.

I gave a demo as well, but now, I am pasting content of my slides.

slide 1 – django

Web framework written in python
MTV – Model(data access), Template(presentation), View(bridge between M and T / logic)
Request response
Fast, secure, scalable, opensource.


slide 2 – architecture



slide 3-

The developer writes/provides the model and then template and view maps to the url

slide 4 –

Django comes with a lightweight web server for developing and testing applications. This server is pre-configured to work with Django.

slide 5-  Installation

Prerequisites – python
dnf install python-django
git clone git://github.com/django/django.git , pip install -e django/
Install pip/pip3 and then pip/pip3 install django
using virtualenv


slide 6 – Imp files in django after creation of project/app



slide 7 –  important links




Popular database now a days – REDIS

Hi readers,


Now a days redies database is very famous.

Because it is in memory database. in memory databases are the databases who used main memory to store the data they dont have storage management system/engine like mysql.

Redis is nosql database, you can store your data in hash/key-value pair format.

It is very fasr so many big companies like twitter instagram, github, stackoverflow are using redis.

We have opensource redis and enterprise redis (redis labs).


I will keep posting more information about redis in coming blogs.

What is Kubernetes

Hi readers,

I already published blog about Docker and difference between docker and virtual machine.

Imagine you want to deploy docker on many servers and manage those servers by automation. Kubernetes is the solution for that.

What is Kubernetes-

Kubernetes is basically tool or system which manages deployment, scaling, performing operations of containers like docker automatically over the cluster.

Cluster is basically group of servers.

With Kubernetes, you are able to quickly and efficiently respond to customer demand:

best practices to work around kubernetes go through http://containertutorials.com/get_started_kubernetes/index.html

you want to understand components of kubernetes go through https://kubernetes.io/docs/admin/cluster-components/

Docker vs Virtual Machine

Hi readers,

I have already published 1 blog regarding docker.

Today I am going to tell you difference between Docker and Viertual Machine(VM)

The main difference between docker and vm is their architecture.

In vm hypervisor plays very important role.

On top of hardware level it have hypervisor.

Hypervisor distributes the guest os and however os are there we can have that much applications. With each different os we have different kernels.

But in case of docker-

Lxc plays very imp role.

Lxc is basically linux container, is an operating-system-level virtualization method for running multiple isolated Linux systems (containers) on a control host using a single Linux kernel. (in vm concepts we should have different kernel for different os, this is main imp difference)


Lxc is an operating-system-level virtualization method for running multiple isolated Linux systems (containers) on a control host using a single Linux kernel.

The Linux kernel provides the cgroups functionality that allows limitation and prioritization of resources (CPU, memory, block I/O, network, etc.) without the need for starting any virtual machines, and also namespace isolation functionality that allows complete isolation of an applications’ view of the operating environment, including process trees, networking, user IDs and mounted file systems.[3]

LXC combines the kernel’s cgroups and support for isolated namespaces to provide an isolated environment for applications. Docker can also use LXC as one of its execution drivers, enabling image management and providing deployment services.



Useful networking linux commands

Hi readers,

I have talking about cloud, OpenStack for this block readers.

To earn more knowledge about cloud and OpenStack you have to have good knowledge of networking.

Following are the basic networking commands for the linux which you must aware about.


ifconfig –

fconfig (interface configurator) command is use to initialize an interface, assign IP Address to interface and enable or disable interface on demand. With this command you can view IP Address and Hardware / MAC address assign to interface and also MTU (Maximum transmission unit) size.


ifconfig interface –

e.g.  ifconfig eth0 –

fconfig with interface (eth0) command only shows specific interface details like IP Address, MAC Address etc. with -a options will display all available interface details if it is disable also.


ping ip address/url –

e.g. ping google.com or ping x.x.x.x –

PING (Packet INternet Groper) command is the best way to test connectivity between two nodes. Whether it is Local Area Network (LAN) or Wide Area Network (WAN). Ping use ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) to communicate to other devices



e.g. traceroute ip address

traceroute is a network troubleshooting utility which shows number of hops taken to reach destination also determine packets traveling path. Below we are tracing route to global DNS server IP Address and able to reach destination also shows path of that packet is traveling.



e.g. netstat -tnlp

It is very imp command to check your desired port listing desire services.

Netstat (Network Statistic) command display connection info, routing table information etc. To displays routing table information use option as -r.



e.g.- dig http://www.google.com

Dig (domain information groper) query DNS related information like A Record, CNAME, MX Record etc. This command mainly use to troubleshoot DNS related query.





route command also shows and manipulate ip routing table. To see default routing table in Linux, type the following command.




what is cloud computing in simple words

Hi readers,

Many people talk about cloud computing in detail like virtualization,storage, but very few are able to explain ‘term’ in basic simple words.

Reader of this blog will understand the basic but important concept of cloud computing.


What is Cloud Computing-

It is a type of computing groups of remote servers and

software networks that allow centralized data storage and

online access to computer services or resources.

Using cloud computing we can manipulate,configure and

access the applications online.

Delivery of on-demand computing resources.


what is opensource and it’s Importance

Hi readers,

I can see currently there are many people are talking about opensource, opensource -projects,techniques, functionality, usability.

Only few have the perfect knowledge of the word/world of opensource.

The reader of this blog will have the good knowledge of opensource.

So go through this blog and earn great knowldge of opensource.


Open source refers to a program or software in which the

source code (the form of the program when a programmer

writes a program in a particular programming language) is

available to the general public for use and/or modification from

its original design free of charge

Open source code is typically created as a collaborative effort

in which programmers improve upon the code and share the

changes within the community

Proprietary software is privately owned and controlled. In the

computer industry, proprietary is considered the opposite of

open. A proprietary design or technique is one that is owned

by a company. It also implies that the company has not

divulged specifications that would allow other companies to

duplicate the product

Why to choose open-source





You can be famous

Own product/project

Understanding code of standard

Helping the people who can’t affort costly software


Support option


some open-source projects









Python is an

Good source of knowledge and problem solver for software engineers.
