WhisperGifts Sees the Light of Day

I got married in March 2007, within a few months of a number of friends. We all shared our trials and tribulations as we each prepared for our big events, and a number of common issues arose. One of these common points of confusion was the preparation of a bridal gift registry - a list of gifts that we would love to receive from our guests.

Being somewhat geeky, I started to put together an online bridal registry system that could not only be used by my fiance and I, but also by our friends and family. This case of scratching an itch turned into a service that would eventually become WhisperGifts, the first public offering of Jutda.

This service evolved over time into a solution suitable for the commercial prime-time and as of today is ready for public consumption at whispergifts.com.

Here's just some of the major benefits of WhisperGifts:

More information on WhisperGifts is available at the WhisperGifts website and in a recent Jutda blog posting.

Soon I'll publish some Django-related technical details of the service, as elements of a commercial service built on Open Source software are often interesting to the community as a whole. As a teaser, here's a few built-in functions that were made much easier with Django. Stay tuned (or rather, subscribe to the RSS Feed) for implementation details over the coming weeks.
