Django Site of the Week: ForecastWatch

Eric Floehr is the man behind ForecastWatch and ForecastAdvisor, two Django-powered weather websites that aggregate and analyse weather forecasts to compare their accuracy on an ongoing basis. This week, I spoke to Eric about the history behind his sites, how he handles massive data sets, and his conversion from Ruby on Rails to Django. You can read all about it over at the Django Site of the Week.

This weeks' SOTW was delayed by a day due to our Australia Day celebrations on the 26th of January. I figured if they can delay an international Tennis match for fireworks, I could delay this as well :)

Thanks for reading.
