In this session, we'll walk through how to connect a database-driven backend to a modern, React-driven static website frontend. We'll use Django as our backend of choice for this class, but the principles will apply to any news developer building databases and wanting to connect them to a modern frontend infrastructure. You'll come away knowing how to build the best of both worlds: a backend robust enough to handle huge datasets, and a frontend performant enough to handle your wildest traffic dreams.
