Event has ended


Django, as we know, has been the backbone of many modern web applications that we see today. It's only fitting that we celebrate Django's 10th anniversary by conducting a hackathon (Djangothon) dedicated to Django and its passionate community.

An example of a django package on social theme is to enable websites to have follow & friends relationship among users, integration with third-party social sites, etc. Any app that allows you to easily integrate social elements in their django site would fall under this theme.


This theme would include apps for site analytics, applications metrics, performance measurement, business intelligence metrics, page load time, etc. which can be integrated out of the box with any django site.


Packages that improve existing database engines like MySQL, Postgres, MongoDB or packages that support other databases like Cassandra, RethinkDB, HBase etc. come under this theme. Apps that help you to collect insights and metrics on top of the database engine for e.g., number of queries/sec, average time taken to execute the queries, etc. can also be built.

Dev tools

A great example of an existing dev tool is django-extensions package. Apps can be built to help debug & log errors faster, improve native runserver, etc. The options in this category are endless and it all depends on building an app for the problem you always faced while writing code in Django.


Can you roll out the simplest & cleanest package to allow users to login in a django site? It can support captcha, throttling or other common things to build a robust authentication system. Again there are lot of improvements that can be done in existing packages like django-allauth or a clean new package can be written from scratch.

API Frameworks

Fed up of all the existing API creation frameworks written in Django? Want to roll out one of your own or improve an existing framework like DRF? You are free to play around, after all it's your battleground.

Django Enhancements

This is a wide category including fields, forms, mixins, templates, or any other core django component where you would like to see enhancements to make the application development better and simpler. You can roll out your own field type, forms, editor, etc. which works out of the box with any django application.

Hackathon Code of Conduct

All attendees, sponsors, partners, volunteers and staff at our hackathon are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

The Quick Version

Our hackathon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, previous hackday attendance or computing experience (or lack of any of the aforementioned). We do not tolerate harassment of hackathon participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate at any hackathon venue, including hacks, talks, workshops, parties, social media and other online media. Hackathon participants violating these rules may be sacked or expelled from the hackathon without a refund (if applicable) at the discretion of the hackathon organisers.

The Less Quick Version

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments related to gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, sexual images in public spaces, intimidation, stalking, following, photography or audio/video recording against reasonable consent, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Photography is encouraged, but other participants must be given a reasonable chance to opt out from being photographed. If they object to the taking of their photograph, comply with their request. It is inappropriate to take photographs in contexts where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy (in bathrooms or where participants are sleeping).

Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

As this is a hackathon we like to explicity note that the hacks created at our hackathon are equally subject to the anti-harassment policy.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of hackathon staff immediately.

Hackathon staff will be happy to help participants contact any local security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the hackathon. We value your attendance.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the hackathon organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the hackathon.

We expect participants to follow these rules at the hackathon.
