How Django was used for recording data and sample collection during a science expedition around Antarctica - Carles Pina Estany

At short notice we had to “build a database” for a scientific expedition (Antarctic Circumnavigation Expedition in 2016). I considered different options, I was introduced to Django and chose to use it (initially a bit reluctantly). We did some express learning with a hard deadline: the expedition was starting.
I’ll explain why Django was a perfect fit for this case, how we (the data manager and I) developed a system used by the scientists in the expedition, what helped us, how the system grew during the 4 months of the expedition and what the strong points of Django for our case were.
