Back in 2008 I started djangosites.org as a listing of websites powered by Django. Prior to that, we relied on a wiki page to see who was using Django, so an image-based website felt like a big improvement.

Since day one I've promised to release the source code ...

DjangoSites Move Complete

For the past few years I've hosted all of my projects on a single RimuHosting VPS. It's old, running Debian 5.0, and maintenance and upgrades have become headachy. It isn't easy to run Python 2.7 on old Debian versions, and since I only started using ...

Django Site of the Week - Ooh-Ga-Boo-Ga

For the second Django SOTW, I had a chat to Bruce Kroeze about one of his Satchmo projects, Ooh-Ga-Boo-Gah. It's a great match of cool design and technical wizardry.

Django Site of the Week

Since I started DjangoSites over a year ago, the response has been fantastic. I used to approve a handful of websites a week, recently it's more like a half-dozen a day.

DjangoSites is 1337

It's kind of nerdy and geeky, but we've just passed the 1337th approved site on DjangoSites.
