Jayson Falkner gave a talk at a recent Django Meetup in San Francisco on the advanced use of Django’s QuerySet API based on lessons learned at Counsyl.
Below are the slides and audio.

You’ll learn how to debug, optimize and use the QuerySet API efficiently. The main examples focus on demystifying how QuerySet maps to SQL and how seemingly simple Python code, presumably fast O(1) queries, can result in unacceptably long runtime and often O(N) or worse queries. Solutions are provided for keeping your Python code simple and RDMS use performant.
Jayson’s code can be found on GitHub.
