    Django Coding Session

    Hi Gareth, Thanks for the really friendly welcome yesterday. :) I definitely feel I got a turbo boost about where and how I am going to start. I plan to be back when I've started coding. Looking forward to it!

    The London Python Group - TLPG

    Hi Gareth,,
    We are a small team of Web Entrepreneurs and programmers who have developed a Social Media based discovery and recommendation platform out of our Goldsmiths college degree courses. We are close to Beta but need a skilled PYTHON developer who has aspirations to be part of an exciting Internet project, to help with us to the finish line and possibly beyond. Could you possibly recommend someone? Many Thanks Paul
