Presentation from DjangoCon Europe 2014

One of the big changes in Django 1.3 was the introduction of Class-Based Views. Class-Based Views represent one of the biggest stylistic changes in Django since Magic Removal, and there's been lots of confusion surrounding them.

This talk will be a brief tutorial, providing some background and dispelling some of the confusion around the use of Class-Based Views. It will also look at some interesting possibilities that are made possible by the use of the class-based view framework.
