The first DjangoBeer event was held in 2013 to gather Florentine developers and to spread the Django technology among Italians. The goal never changed. What has been modified a little, however, is the format: at present DjangoBeer events are overnight events similar to hackathons. During these sessions participants dive into a particular technology using a pc and are led by a person who is proficient in the relevant technology already used it before. DjangoBeer meetings take place monthly at the Nephila headquarters. All the events are free and open to the participation of Django and new technolgies passionates.
