Python/Django/React

We are two buddies building a killer medical app in the San Francisco Bay Area - We're your quintessential bootstrap operation. Our bad-ass software is roughly 80% complete (thanks to our rockstar programmer) with several outstanding Github issues that need to be translated into workable Python/Django/ReactJS codes.

Do you have some awesome skills in this area? We would you like to meet for a quick chat, and if you’re up for it, we’ll donate some funds towards a charity of your choice just for spending some time with us.

Thank you so much for your time!

Question 1:

We are currently facing a challenge where we need to generate PDF’s of all the pages generated by the activities our research participants take part in. As we make use of Django rest framework and angular on our frontend the challenge is currently finding a way to generate these PDF programmatically. Come up with a solution of how you would approach this and which third party packages you would use.

Question 2:

We make requests to our API for data which is shared over several angular components. These components need to wait for the data to be available before they can run using this data. An example of this is we request the current user’s permissions based on different user groups (Admin and User) and then use that in several components to render the page the user should see depending on their privileges. Could you explain how you would implement this in angular with short extracts of the code.
