15 year software dev working primarily with django since 2011.
My career has primarily centered on the intersection of medical research and software, including automated reporting of mandated reportable disease based on EMR data, a novel disease-outbreak surveillance system, diabetes research software utilizing social networking, clinical patient care communication and workflow tools, an international disease research registry, and fMRI analysis and interpretation tool.
Web tooling for data analysis requires, at its heart, a way to select the data a user want's to analyze. This talk shows how you can use forms to pass data among pages, retain the selected form elements through the request/response cycle and build web interfaces that utilize forms while looking like simple link elements. I will also show how I use my django-modelqueryform package to facilitate an advanced user-centric data filtering interface.
