django training

Apart from Training Django, due to increasing corporate requirement, I am given assignments to interview candidates for Python & Django. Sharing my understanding of entire scenario from candidates prospective or corporate perspective.

Corporate Prospective - Companies looking for a transition to open-source technologies from .NET based frameworks. What they typically want is candidates with hands-on django with a good grip on python. They want people with Django + AngularJS + Spark/Big Data. AngularJS makes them full stack developer. These companies want to leverage Big Data technologies to store & process data ( This skill is icing on the cake ). As of now, companies are not getting folks with decent Django experts with 2+ years of experience. The question that still goes answerless is - 'How to add objects in a set, such that no same data containing objects are added'.

Candidate Prospective - The companies mainly looking for people who can be productive from week 2 onwards. They should know middleware stuff, modeling etc.  Very few candidates have such profile, they are expecting a bomb salary. Others didn't get a chance to gather expertise. As a candidate, go a bit deeper into django concepts, deep dive into object-oriented python, some angularJS stuff - like integrate angularJS with django templates is a regular question. Read about Big Data concepts - most tech stuff is now incomplete without them.

In a nutshell, companies need people for django & solid python. On a regular java walk-in I see some 200+ walk-in, on other hand python-django walking I see 5-6 people. There is a serious mismatch. Apart from mid-level companies, Django is quite popular among startup. They are ready to pay almost anything for a candidate with proper hands-on & knowledge base.
