Django Con 2009 Day 1

Just a quick check in from Djangocon 2009. There is a buzz about Test Driven Development, and we at Web Cube have been listening intently. Eric Holscher's talk on testing in Django provided a great overview and was in line with our own internal goals for continuous integration. James Bennett provided further insight on the necessity of well documented and clean code, and Brian Rosner's talk on deploying Django provided some alternate solutions to our own deployment mechanisms. We spent some time with Jared Kuolt of partner hosting company Slice Host. A special thanks to the PDX python user group for taking on the Djangocon masses for their monthly meeting, and to Web Trends for hosting. And finally, an emphatic plug for Portland beer!

Also, we stubbled into guy at one of the local pubs enjoying a Green Flash Beer. It is always cool to travel hundreds of miles and see someone drinking a beer out of a bottle that we designed.
