Is your system under-performing? Down? That's when you'll wish you had stats and easy ways to view them so you can quickly zero in on non-obvious root causes. Graphite and Statsd do exactly this, and Ross McFarland will tell you all about how to use these packages to their fullest, in conjunction with Django. If you want a head start, you can read the blog post Ross wrote about this subject last year:

Following this hour long presentation, we'll take turns showing off an app we're working on (max of 3 presentations, 5-10 minutes each), directing attention to code in the app you think might be of special interest to a roomful of Django developers.

As usual, use remaining time to work on your project, give and get help over the shoulders of others for anything related to Django, including Python, CSS, HTML, JavaScript, Django apps, deployment, etc. Accelerate your learning, hone your Django skills, and/or get to know other East Bay Django Developers.

Beginners welcome - but you'll get much more out of the group if you know some Python, have installed Django, and have completed at least parts I and II of the official Django tutorial, or had some other form of exposure to Django. To get started:
