News from our neighborhood: Django Software Foundation
ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
Our magazine offices are only about a block away from the Lawrence Journal-World and The World Company headquarters in Lawrence, Kansas. This morning, as I sipped my coffee and scanned the local paper's website, I noticed an article about the Django Software Foundation.
The Django homepage describes it as "... a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design."
The Lawrence Journal-World article says, "Django, started nearly five years ago by programmers affiliated with The World Company, now joins a lineup of pervasive computer languages and systems — including Mozilla, Apache and Linux — to be overseen by a nonprofit organization."
According to the Django site, the foundation's goals are to:
- Support development of Django by sponsoring sprints, meetups, gatherings and community events.
- Promote the use of Django among the world-wide Web development community.
- Protect the intellectual property and the framework's long-term viability.
- Advance the state of the art in Web development.
