Scaling Python past 100
log in to bookmark this presentaton
The path from legacy PHP to modern python tools has been long an bumpy, and this is the story of how we took Python from a single prototype site, to the core technology driving SourceForge.net. I will discuss the mistakes we made along the way, the benefits that sold python, and the real secret behind our python transformation.
A few highlights include:
- How we abused libraries for fun and profit
- How a major mistake made us look good
- How the python community worked for us
- How we couldn't have done it without Django AND TurboGears
