In addition, we will discuss the benefits of using OpenAPI for API development, and learn how to leverage it to create robust and scalable APIs. We will cover best practices for API design, including request handling, response formatting, authentication, and versioning.

Throughout the session, we will focus on building RESTful APIs with Django and DRF, using practical examples to illustrate key concepts. Attendees will leave with a solid understanding of how to design and document APIs using OpenAPI, ensuring that their documentation is always up-to-date and accurate.

Whether you are new to API development or looking to improve your existing skills, this session is for you. Join us and learn how to build powerful and effective APIs using Django, DRF, and OpenAPI.
