    Sending E-Mail is an important part of almost every web or mobile product.

  6. Effective Django — Effective DjangoSaturday, March 30, 2013

    Django is a popular, powerful web framework for Python. It has lots of “batteries” included, and makes it easy to get up and going. But all of the power means you can write low quality code that still seems to work. Effective Django development means building applications that are testable, maintainable, and scalable – not only in terms of traffic or load, but in terms of being able to add developers to projects. After reading Effective Django you should have an understanding of how Django’s pieces fit together, how to use them to engineer web applications, and where to look to dig deeper.
