“The Definitive Guide to Django” is now shipping from Amazon. The book looks absolutely fantastic (bias disclosure: I contributed the newforms chapter)—huge congratulations to Adrian and Jacob. # 11th December 2007, 9:12 pm

Django Book Update. It’s done! Went to the printer on Friday, due in bookstores in the second week of December (just in time for Christmas). Congrats to Adrian and Jacob. # 14th November 2007, 12:59 am

Django may be built for the Web, but CouchDB is built of the Web. I’ve never seen software that so completely embraces the philosophies behind HTTP. CouchDB makes Django look old-school in the same way that Django makes ASP look outdated.

CouchDB first impressions. Jacob’s been poking at CouchDB. Inserting data is slow, but everything else looks pretty slick considering how recently the JSON / JavaScript views functionality was added. # 19th October 2007, 11:43 am

Django on the iPhone. Jacob got it working. The next image in his photostream shows the Django admin application querying his phone’s local database of calls. # 19th August 2007, 7:58 am

mobileterminal (via) The iPhone now has a GUI terminal application, which can run a comand-line SSH client. Now I really want one. # 16th August 2007, 2:54 pm

Django Master Class. Notes and slides from the OSCON tutorial I gave yesterday with Jacob Kaplan-Moss and Jeremy Dunck. # 24th July 2007, 3:20 pm

Seasoning Templates. “Designing a template language is a lot like seasoning a dish; there’s a whole range of tastes out there.” # 19th July 2007, 6:04 pm

Die, Marker Felt, Die! How to replace Marker Felt in the iPhone notes application with Helvetica, via some hackery with jailbreak, MacFUSE and iphonedisk. By the time they arrive in the UK it looks like they’ll have been hacked wide open. # 16th July 2007, 10:50 pm

Django Internships at the Journal-World. The Journal-World is an amazing place to start your career. # 2nd May 2007, 9:54 pm

You vs. the Real World. The lengths programming libraries go to to be liberal in what they accept. # 12th March 2007, 10:48 pm

Web Focus Leads Newspapers to Hire Programmers for Editorial Staff. It’s great to see this trend taking off. A newsroom is an excellent place to work as a programmer. # 8th March 2007, 12:27 am

Five things I hate about Python. By Jacob Kaplan-Moss. I didn’t know you could force eggs to install unzipped with an option in ~/.pydistutils.cfg—that’s always been my least favourite thing about them. # 4th March 2007, 10:32 pm

More Django (likely more than is healthy). Jacob’s advanced Django tutorial from PyCon. I really like the template he’s using to present the slides and notes. # 1st March 2007, 11:08 pm
