Wow didnโ€™t realize. Which version does this? Iโ€™m asking since I run and I thought post Linux mini conda or the like was required.

Agreed. I haven't done that exact setup but would be helpful to have. If only provided an incentive for people to do so since hosting providers change things around often so even if I write one, it'll be out of date soon.

What setup have you used so far? What are using for Python for example? I have a chromebook in the mail as well...

Glad you liked it! I thought Wenbin was quite impressive too. Donโ€™t need to be needlessly complex.

Perhaps in the Professionals book. I think way too much for Beginners, but I am thinking about ways to outline Django patterns I see now that probably weren't clear a few years ago to me.

Yeah. I think the key here is there are a number of different approaches and as a project grows itโ€™s necessary to switch things around. So...a deep topic.

Yeah, exactly. How will these initial choices reverberate over the life of a project, which ones can be easily changed or not.

Me too, but ultimately doesn't "really" matter since I can configure deployment etc as needed. But not having the period is a common beginner mistake that messes up deployment if people follow my tutorials.

I think key divider is what choices have to be made but don't really matter vs choices (thinking custom user model) that do matter up front and can cause issues later on.

I'm increasingly aware of these patterns/choices I think many experienced devs take from granted but which overwhelm newer peeps. Anyway curious if it'd be of interest to folks, aka should I submit it as a talk? Or do I just sit in the back this year at conferences :)

Others have nuance like Template structure. Then there's authentication, UserProfile vs CustomUser, static file config, env variables, testing. Some choices matter a lot and some just need to be made...

Curious what folks think of a talk on Django as a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure. There are close to a dozen choices a developer has to make when starting/architecting a new project. Some are arbitrary: run `startproject` with or without a period at the end.
