Luke and I competed in DjangoDash a few weeks ago, and hey, we actually finished a site.
Having spent the last four years rolling out a handful of service oriented architectures, some lessons are finally coming together, and this is an attempt at documenting them.
A rather rough and tumble walkthrough for using Django and JQuery to make autocomplete input fields.
PyObjC is one of the most helpful projects I have ever used, but a number of individuals have been having trouble getting started with PyObjC on Leopard because the documentation is in a bit of a disarray. In particular, there didn't seem to be a comprehensive tutorial that could introduce a newcomer to all the important aspects of PyobjC, and that was completely up to date. Here is my attempt to fill that void. With a vengeance.
A quick look at three different approaches for implementing touch detection using the Cocos2d iPhone library. There are a number of snippets here, and I imagine it would be rather confusing to approach without a basic understanding of ObjC and Cocos2d iPhone.
This is the final installment of my series of articles looking at how Django's loose coupling philosophy impacts day to day development. Here we'll be looking at using CouchDB with Django to create a simple web application.
Quick walkthrough of my code for converting a very large CSV file into a very large XML file using the Python standard libraries. Despite a few issues along the way, was a very pleasant experience.
Yesterday I spent some time running memory usage tests on Redis. Specifically I was interested in storing roughly comparable data in the different data structures and comparing costs. This article contains the numbers and notes from that process.
This heavy tome of wisdom will guide you, keystroke by keystroke, through configuring a mod_wsgi, Postgres, memcached, Django server on Ubuntu Intrepid. Written for a complete command line beginner, but hopefully useful to everyone (I know I'll have to refer to it to remember how to add additional domains to my server as well ;).
One of the most destructive ideas is that you can dig out of a hole by doing what you're already doing, but doing it harder. This doesn't work, but it does breed and kill your heroes, and alienate everyone else.
