How startups can leverage python?

Kaushal Singh (~kaushal)





  • With the boom in startup culture, there have been in an ever-increasing demand in placing tech infra in place as soon as possible. As if problem was not challenging enough, we are also overburdened with a lot of constraints on the infrastructure such as it should be
  • Robust and elegant.
  • Scalable
  • Easy to deploy and maintain.
  • Able to handle security related issues
  • And most importantly it should be able to support in product delivery within a very limited time with a small team (sigh!!!).

In this talk we would be tackling all these issues through:

  • Django quick development cycle.
  • Deployment on amazon EC2.
  • Countless of easily pluggable modules.
  • Providing API for mobile apps with authentication.


  • Handling all the asynchronous processing, using celery with multiple workers.
  • Monitoring everything tasks, queries, performance
  • How Zostel has implemented its infra levering all the above mentioned techniques?
