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.
Welcome Alex Gaynor
I'm excited to announce that Alex Gaynor is joining the Eldarion team part-time.
How to Generate Gradients and Textures
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.
Web Site Co-Productions
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.
DjangoCon is the conference for Django and will be held September 8–12th in Portland, Oregon. Eldarion is proud to be a silver sponsor.
Welcome Brian Rosner
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.
