2012 was another great year for Eldarion, taking more clients from idea to launch and releasing more open source apps and sites of our own.
On Sunday afternoon, our Django app for site invitations, kaleo, got a 1.0 release and while it was feature complete, updates were made that were not backward compatible in an effort to make things cleaner and more consistent with other Pinax apps.
It is always fun to make new releases of our open source packages, however small. This week has seen two releases so far on two different projects.
With Pinax, Gondor, Twitter Bootstrap and a bunch of Django apps written by us or others, we can get to a minimum viable project very quickly. Here's how we did it on ThoughtStreams.
Are you certain that email sent from your site was read, or even delivered? Now you can, with the help of SendGrid and one of Eldarion's latest open source contributions.
Here at Eldarion, we launch a lot of sites—both for ourselves as well as for our clients. A large portion of these sites require some form of collecting payments. This used to be a painful and hard problem. Not anymore.
Even though we're normally busy working away in our respective home offices, the team does occasionally get out to promote open source, entrepreneurship and what we're up to.
There are five key benefits of engaging an agency that we have learned from working with a number of startups and businesses of different configurations—from no technical staff to just a couple new engineers, or even full dedicated engineering teams.
Last week we launched two new paid sites and we're taking a different approach to each of them. We also celebrated an anniversary.
