Four weeks ago, we launched a little side project called typewar, which tests how well people know their typefaces. This is the first of a series of blog posts about the site and will explain how the site came about and why we did it. Later posts will go into some of the more interesting technical aspects behind the site.
Eldarion is teaming up with OSWCO to promote open source Django and Pinax solutions at the Bank Administration Institute Retail Delivery show in Boston this week.
James, Brian and Alex are at DjangoCon and we're looking forward to seeing a bunch of old friends and making some new ones. Oh, and we're also giving some talks.
I'm excited to announce that Alex Gaynor is joining the Eldarion team part-time.
Some of you may have noticed the gradient background on this site now has a nice texture to it.
We often want to create gradients like that and, rather than having to open up a drawing tool every time, we use a Python library to generate PNG files based on a specification of the gradient and texture desired.
One thing on our home page that has gotten a lot of interest is our mention of "co-productions" so I thought I'd explain a little about our vision there.
An amazing 128-slide presentation (designed for reading) describes the culture at Netflix.
DjangoCon is the conference for Django and will be held September 8–12th in Portland, Oregon. Eldarion is proud to be a silver sponsor.
Brian Rosner is a core contributor to both Django and Pinax and was involved in Pinax from the first day it went beyond just being one person. I'm thrilled he's now joined Eldarion full time.
This blog is about Eldarion and our thoughts on business and technical topics.
