I wasn’t fortunate enough to attend DjangoCon 2008 at Google’s headquarters but I’m happy to see that the videos from the conference are now available on Youtube and Google Video. I really liked the Django Success Stories discussion. It is interesting to see how small most of the development teams are for these projects. The team I work on is small too, in fact there are only two of us. And we don’t have a designer. So I spend most of my time fighting CSS and HTML rather than working on real code. Of course, starting a project with ColdFusion is a lot more painful and slower than starting a project with Django. But I’m comparing apples to oranges. ColdFusion is not a real web framework like Django.
