djangovan: The Django Vancouver Meetup Group Message Board › Django Vancouver December 2011 Meetup Recap
Hi Vancouver Djangonauts!
Thank You to everyone who attended the December Django Vancouver meetup earlier this month. Here's a recap of the topics discussed:
- Bryan gave a talk on Django application process management. Process life cycle issues were discussed in the context of deploying app changes without interrupting live requests, and a solution using the uWSGI app container server was presented.
- Yaron provided an overview of CrowdFanatic.com, a social engagement platform built using Django. CrowdFanatic is currently looking to hire a Django developer.
- Aaron presented Djangbone, a reusable Django app for building APIs to be consumed by Backbone.js
- Grant and Clark demoed ThisFish.info, a platform that enables consumers to track the origin of they seafood they eat, build on Django.
The December Meetup was sponsored by A Thinking Ape, who generously provided their space, and CrowdFanatic, who provided financial assistance, which we applied towards the pizza. Thank you sponsors!
The next meetup will be held around the end January 2012. We'll try to get the date scheduled after the new year.
Happy Holidays everyone!
